Elder Scrolls VI was teased at E3 2018 and while the game is not going to be coming out soon that has not stopped people from talking about it and asking for more details regarding where it is based and what we can expect to see from the new title in the franchise. According to Todd Howard:
I obviously would say yes [you can guess the location], but you can’t – it’s intentional. You can rule some things out. And you can rule some things in. The first thing we do is the world so we’ve known for a while where it’s set.
While we know that Bethesda is going to be making Elder Scrolls VI, it has been confirmed, you must be wondering why did they announce it when it was years away? Pete Hines answered this question a few days back and the following is what he had to say in this regard:
A couple of years ago I talked to Todd [Howard] about clarifying with everybody that TES6 was not going to be our next game, and we had two other big games that we wanted to do first. So we had already put that out there several years ago, but we were very vague on what those other two titles were. So it was just in conversations with him [and] folks on my team to say, look, why don’t we consider putting out a little bit more of a roadmap for the studio that explains to folks, ‘Here’s what we’re doing—yes, we’re making this game called Starfield and here’s what it is, and yes, we’re going to make Elder Scrolls 6.
The good news is that Elder Scrolls VI has been confirmed, the bad news is that you will be waiting a long time. First, the team has to finish Starfield, then after that is released the team will work on ESVI. That could take a year or two as well. So it is safe to say that the game is not coming out before 2020, at the least. Thanks to Bethesda for telling us after so long that there is another game coming out.
