Elder Scrolls 6 is still years away, now please stop bugging Bethesda about it

We get it, guys. You want Elder Scrolls 6. We’ve heard you ask…so many times now. Please, just stop…nope, there you go again. Asking for more info on Elder Scrolls 6. What you need to understand is that…okay, you’re still asking us questions. Not even listening, huh? The thing about Starfield is…aaaaand we’re back to Elder Scrolls. Great.

John McTotallyNotMadeGuy, Bethesda Head of Stop Asking About Elder Scrolls 6 GAWD

The previous little interaction between Bethesda and fans of the Elder Scrolls game is perhaps the most accurate representation of that relationship one is able to muster without going so far as to plant surveillance devices all over Pete Hine’s Twitter feed. Bethesda, probably sick of fielding questions on when we can expect the next entry in their beloved fantasy role-playing franchise, has reiterated once again that Elder Scrolls 6 is a long long way away.

Responding to a fan query on Twitter, Bethesda’s head of marketing Pete Hines stated, “It’s after Starfield, which you pretty much know nothing about. So if you’re coming at me for details now and not years from now, I’m failing to properly manage your expectations.” Well, at least we know it’s after Starfield, which…well, actually we probably know less about Starfield than the next Elder Scrolls. A new IP for Bethesda which obviously follows a sci-fi setting, Starfield has been teased for years now with Bethesda only dropping a brief teaser trailer back in 2018 which highlighted the…title card. Great.

Perhaps I’m reading a little too much into Hine’s response but there’s definitely seems to be a tone of annoyance to his text. Maybe Bethesda is just sick of people asking questions about The Elder Scrolls. Given its recent track record, one has to imagine that many fans are praying that Elder Scrolls 6 will mark a return to form for the studio. Until then, you’ll just have to go about and play one of the 500 ports of Skyrim to satiate your Elder Scrolls itch. Or play Oblivion, the obviously best Elder Scrolls game.

      I mean. They DO keep saying – it’s after Starfield. And since we do literally know nothing about that, it’s reasonable to expect that ES6 is a long, long way away from releasing any more info.

        But its not reasonable expect that.

        Fans arent reasonable, and even then, the trailer is nearly 2 years old and we dont know much more than what the trailer told us, a landscape and a game title.

          And they’ve made no indication that anything more is even close to being announced or being ready to be announced. So why are fans expecting the unrealistic? Expecting something that wasn’t promised?

          It’s reasonable to say “this is a thing, it’s in development. We don’t have news for you and won’t for years”. What’s not reasonable is fans ignoring that 2nd part and demanding news anyway.

    Yes, stop bugging Bugthesda. you can always buy Fallout 76 and subscribe to their 12 month Fallout 1st subscription service for almost R2000, or buy TESO and subscribe to their 12 month subscription service for Almost R2000 as well. Both games comes with

    See the quotation marks? That’s to indicate it’s optional and in no way necessary.

      Ok I’m not going to touch F76 because that’s some toxic waste shit right there. But ESO doesn’t really need you to spend beyond the initial purchase price.

        I said the same about GTAV online, I really wanted my $10 000 000.00 yacht and I got my yacht. All it took was grinding for months on end. At one point I modified my MTU settings because it allowed me to play in an empty lobby. Free from trolls who loved nothing more than roaming the skies with jets blowing people up for fun.

        Was it fun? At first yes. Especially with friends. But life intervenes and I was stuck going about it on my own. Doing the same missions over and over and over. For weeks until it physically became a chore. I was lamenting the facts that I could be playing something else and in the end I bought the last $1 000 000 cash in game so that I could move on with my life.

        But it was optional of course.

          Yeah, but let’s be fair here – MMOs are the OGs of grindy gameplay. It’s a part of the core loop. ESO specifically, I found the in-game shop and sub unnecessary.
