Are you a fan of action RPGs like Skyrim? The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a hugely popular open-world fantasy action RPG that was released in 2011. As the fifth mainline game in the Elder Scrolls franchise, it has garnered a massive following across various gaming platforms.
Naturally, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of the next installment, The Elder Scrolls VI. In 2018, Bethesda finally announced the game with a teaser trailer, which built excitement for what’s to come. However, details remain scarce and there is still no set release date.
While the wait continues for more information on The Elder Scrolls VI, fans can re-watch the announcement trailer from 2018 to get a taste of the epic adventure that awaits:
Sadly though, that trailer is also a problem. Since that reveal we have seen nothing on the game or have been fed very little information other than we don’t expect it on PlayStation. Though presently the focus is currently on the upcoming launch of their new IP. The game in question is no shock, it’s the long-awaited Starfield. This means Elder Scrolls 6 will take a little bit of a back seat while Bethesda focuses on this launch. With a reveal five years ago surely we were close to some news, or were we?
The Latest On Elder Scrolls 6
Pete Hines has spoken about the game in a recent interview. Thanks to that interview we have an update of where the development is at when asked. He simply confirmed it’s not in concept pre-production. So fans can take mixed news from his response which was “It’s in development, but it’s in early development”. Also, we shouldn’t expect to hear anything anytime soon.
However, this isn’t the first time we heard we may have a wait for information. Pure Xbox reported something said by Phil Spencer in the recent FTC hearings.
As I said, with Elder Scrolls VI, it’s so far out–it’s hard to understand what the platforms will even be at this point. It’s the same team that’s finishing Starfield, which comes out this September. So we’re talking about a game that’s like five-plus years away.Phil Spencer on the sixth Elder Scrolls release
There could be a chance this current generation of consoles may not even see the game. As if go for that five years away as a minimum that’s 2028. Which is eight years from the start of this generation. The Xbox One era lasted seven years before we saw this generation in 2020. So it is really a case of wait and see. As always why not share your thoughts?
