Some of you might have seen the interview with Todd Howard hinting on the development of Elder Scrolls 6. He admitted that they have plans for the game and that they will need a lot of technology for developing it, ‘so it’s something that’s going to take a lot of time, what we have in mind for that game’.
The Elder Scrolls 6 – Is it in Development?
A year later, Howard changed his plans, saying that they are working on two major titles before ‘we’re gonna get to Elder Scrolls 6. TES 6 is not in dev while we work on [them]’.
The two major titles are of course The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, so we believe that the Elder Scrolls 6 will be the next on the list for development.
But Bethesda usually announces their games when they’re almost ready to be released, so be sure to wait a long-long time before you hear anything official about Elder Scrolls 6. So, if they’ve already started the development we will perhaps see a teaser next year and a release in 2019 – best case scenario.
Bethesda Must Let Go of Skyrim
Another thing that might keep them from releasing a new Elder Scrolls game is Skyrim. It looks like the success this current game has prevents the team to look forward to creating a new game. They must let go of Skyrim and all its re-releases for different platforms and come up with a new and fresh vision to keep us hooked.
The Elder Scrolls 6 should have a new identity, take a new direction and should definitely not to be built in the shadow of its predecessor.
While we don’t know when Bethesda will start working on the game, we hope that they will come up with a whole new content.
