The Elder Scrolls 6 is happening, but it’s a long way off

Elder Scrolls fans are in for a treat this year, with a newly re-engineered version of everybody’s favourite dragon-shouting simulator Skyrim on the way.

This, naturally, hassled to quite a bit of disappointment for those who were expecting a brand new Elder Scrolls. Well, it’s coming. It just happens to be coming in a long, long time.

According to Bethesda’s Pete Hines, The Elder Scrolls 6 is coming – but it’s going to be quite a while.

Here’s what Hines had to say on Youtube’s E3 show after the Bethesda conference.

“[Elder Scrolls 6 is] kind of like the elephant in the room, always, when we talk about anything, and you know, I think it’s good in these moments to tell our fans yes, of course we are [working on it] – 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.”

How long? Well, Bethesda has two other games ahead of The Elder Scrolls 6 in the pipeline, so it’ll likely be at least two years before we get an announcement.

“So it is something that’s going to take a lot of time, what he have in mind for that game, and we actually have two other large projects we’re also doing that are bigger than everything we’ve done.”

So yes, The Elder Scrolls 6 is coming, but it won’t be for a while. Guess you’ll have to just play Skyrim. Again. Again.

          That reminds me. We need to start lobbying now for retirement homes to get fibre or its gonna bite us in the ass when we finally get there.

            You’re right! We need to be pro-active. Maybe we should form a lobby group “The Twilight Year Gamers”. Retirement homes must stock a huge video game library, consoles and gaming PCs in every room, and a snack bar…

            Also… sponge baths from hot Swedish ladies!

      Can’t believe they’re retiring Geralt. I mean even Kratos is making a comeback, wheelchair and all

          Bioware used to be the king of RPG but then they have taken an EA to the knee.
          They are still great but you are right. CD Projekt Red is now the king of RPG!

    Just make the combat more interesting. Everything else was cool enough.
