It was at E3 2018 when Bethesda’s Todd Howard sent Elder Scrolls fans into frenzy when he announced that the studio is working on the series’ latest installment called Elder Scrolls 6.
The excitement even ramped up as the studio released a teaser of what fans knew would be the game’s newest offering. But all that anticipation would eventually be put to waste because since that event, Bethesda has never talked about Elder Scrolls 6 again.
The company was also firm in saying that they won’t release any statement regarding the game until they are ready to do so.
But the rumor mills continue to say that Bethesda could be secretly working on the game, especially since work on Starfield is about to wrap up. So we did the research ourselves and this is what we discovered:
- The Elder Scrolls 6 isn’t coming out any time soon. The bad news is, fans might have to wait until 2021 for the latest installment to be released. The good news is, there’s something that fans could eventually look forward to in a year or two.
The biggest hint that Bethesda has given would be Todd Howard’s statement that Elder Scrolls 6 will come after Starfield, which is expected to be released in 2020. If that’s the case, it could be a few years before the studio will release Elder Scrolls 6.
- Bethesda is hiring new people for a project. According to one Reddit user, there is a job listing for gameplay programmers in Bethesda Game Studios. In the job description, the company said that it’s looking for “talented programmers to join our team that is pushing the bleeding-edge of RPG development for the PC and consoles.”
While there were no specifics on the project, the job hiring looks like it’s for a new project in its early stages rather than an existing project like Starfield.
- There was no sign of Elder Scrolls 6 at E3 2019. With its huge success in 2018, it’s quite surprising for fans to not see any traces of Elder Scrolls 6 at E3 2019. In fact, when asked about the game during a PAX East Panel for the 25th anniversary of Elder Scrolls, Howard said that it’s “going to be a long time!
It’s not something we’re going to be talking about, either of those games, at E3 this year, and so patience please.
For now, we only know one thing: that Elder Scrolls 6 will eventually come out in the near future.
