In a recent interview, Bethesda Director Todd Howard revealed that he knew the release date of The Elder Scrolls VI, although he wouldn't reveal it.
We know TES VI is many years away, as it's coming after Starfield which is clearly a next gen game. With next gen consoles launching somewhere around 2020, Starfield could come out in the first couple years. With that in mind, and considering he knows the release date this early, the release date is pretty obvious. The series' 30th anniversary will be on March 25, 2024. That's likely what they're working towards.
It's a shame thought we've missed an entire gen without a new Elder Scrolls game. I don't know why he could have gotten another team to do an ES Spin off game like they did with Fallout New Vegas.
Yeah I would have been happy with a spinoff. Just something, instead of this long wait.
As much fun as Fallout 4 was I really feel like Bethesda didn't release a proper next gen open world on this generation of console... I don't mind if TES VI and Starfield are remastered or released simultaneously across PS4 and PS5 but I really want a proper TES on my PS4...
For all we know Todd might say its coming out next year like he did with Fallout.
Pretty sure he described Starfield as a look in to what they're working on for the next generation and that TES would be after that.
One of my most anticipated games of E3, but it’s a long way off, for sure.
the game is still in pre production though which makes this statement really funny. i guess that he has a year expectation and that he also just expects a november release for that year. close enough for a date.
I really wanted Starfield this year.....
2030 (this is only a slight exaggeration)
Haha sadly might not be that far off. I am setting myself up for a ~2025 release for ES6 give or take a year...
I know it too, it will be released between today and before the year 3,000. Just in time to deliver a pizza ...
Yeah because stating it’s at least 4 years away still will land him some death threats the way some people react lately
Fall 2021 at the earliest judging by their comments, seems more like they released this trailer just to get fans off their back that they are working on one.
How could he possibly? Maybe they're pulling another Fallout 4 and releasing it a few months after announcement (wishful thinking, I know).
Well he thinks he does anyway.
When I retire? Oh well, at least I will have time to finish it.
Sweet little lies.
I know it too.
