The Elder Scrolls 6 Announced Too Early Bethesda Todd Howard

Bethesda Wonders if it Announced The Elder Scrolls 6 Too Early

While all the attention is on Starfield right now, fans are still looking at what’s next from Bethesda Game Studios and it’s something much bigger than the developer’s new sci-fi adventure. Back in 2018, Bethesda officially announced The Elder Scrolls 6 but now director Todd Howard wonders if it announced the anticipated follow-up to Skyrim too early.

Speaking to GQ in a recent interview, Howard was asked if he regrets announcing The Elder Scrolls 6 over five years ago, to which he replied, “I have asked myself that a lot. I don’t know. I probably would’ve announced it more casually.”

Howard, who will also direct The Elder Scrolls 6 after Starfield, was then asked what he’d like to achieve with the game. He responded:

“It’s like… I don’t want to answer, but I want to be polite. I will say that we want it to fill that role of the ultimate fantasy-world simulator. And there are different ways to accomplish that given the time that has passed.”

Since it’s all hands on deck for Starfield at Bethesda Game Studios, full development on The Elder Scrolls 6 hasn’t quite commenced yet. In a 2021 interview with The Telegraph, Howard explained, “The vast majority of our development work is on Starfield right now but everybody works on everything so the projects kind of intertwine.”

Estimates for when The Elder Scrolls 6 will release are all over the place. During the recent FTC court case, Microsoft’s lawyer claimed that the game is projected to release in 2026 while Xbox boss Phil Spencer stated that it’s at least over five years away. That decision will ultimately come down to Bethesda Game Studios and how long it needs in development to complete the highly anticipated RPG.

We’ve got our own theories about where The Elder Scrolls 6 will be set but we likely won’t hear about the game for a while.
