Bethesda Confirms Elder’s Scroll 6

Bethesda’s E3 2016 press conference was full of exciting reveals and big game announcements. From the confirmation that Arkane Studios is working on a Preyreboot, to the Dishonored 2 gameplay debut that finally showed off Emily Kaldwin’s powers in action, there was a lot for fans to smile about. However, one disappointing thing that was missing was the announcement of The Elder Scrolls 6. With Bethesda’s E3 promo images featuring (Skyrim protagonist) the Dragonborn, many had high hopes that the game would be revealed during the event.

But, although The Elder Scrolls 6 wasn’t revealed on stage, that doesn’t mean that the game’s not in the works. When asked about TES 6 during an interview with Geoff Keighley during the YouTube Live at E3 stream, Bethesda’s chief game creator Todd Howard revealed that “it’s good in these moments to tell our fans, ‘Yes, of course we are [making The Elder Scrolls 6]. It’s something we love.’ But it is–you know, I have to be careful what I say–it’s a very long way off.”


Howard further explained that “I could sit here and explain the game to you, and you would say, ‘That sounds like you don’t even have the technology–how long is that going to take?’” The Bethesda executive also says that the developer has “two other large projects we’re also doing that are bigger than anything we’ve done.” Fans will “probably” hear about these two major projects before they hear about The Elder Scrolls 6, adds Howard, “and that’ll make sense many years from now.”
