Xbox head Phil Spencer confirms The Elder Scrolls 6 won't release until after Playground Games Fable, hinting at a post-2023 release date.
That's one long wait. Hopefully avowed comes out sooner to lighten the blow.
Avowed and Fable are likely 2023, Outer Worlds 2 is probably 2022.
There are rumors (since 2017-2018) that Playground has been working on Fable. Fable could release in 2022.
Chop No way is outer worlds 2 in 2022. The developers themselves said game isn't even ready so I doubt in a year and a half it gets done
MS big game for 2022 is starfield, Avowed, fable, OW2 are 2023 and beyond.
Let me remind you of the trailer we all saw 2 months ago. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Nonsense. This is the most realistic schedule: Fable - 2023 Avowed - 2024 Outer Worlds 2 - 2025 ES6 - 2026 ES6 is still in the writing/pre-production stage, and won't go into full production until Starfield is out, updated and possibly even had some DLC released. It's a really long way off yet.
@neutralgamer1992 Yes. When a game hasn't even entered production yet and it is AAA, then it is at least 2-3 years away. Games in production are 1-2 years away. And games being tested and showing full gameplay are usually within the year. Games today are big efforts like movies. They don't just magically appear in a few months. I would guess fable in2023, elder scrolls Vi in 2024 and avowed around 2025 and outer worlds 2 around 2026
Relax, guys. It was just a very unfortunate typo. I meant to say that OW2 is probably 2024.
You mean Outerworlds 2 is 2024 😁
@Captain Yes, lol.
Starfield is expected to be a very big game... Bethesda Game Studios have been working on it for a long time. Elder Scrolls 6 will take some time and they are likely working on a new Fallout.
The release sequence is likely to be Avowed > Fable > TES VI Avowed will likely compete with Dragon Age 4 in 2023 in AAA RPG space. Followed by Fable in 2024.
I’m sure Fable will be great. Playground Games are an amazing developer. Forza Horizon 5 looks incredible.
I am so freakin pumped to see more of Fable just because Playground is making it! Their technical prowess is insane! Now lets just hope they have a knack for storytelling as well. From what I have heard, and what the trailer showed, its seems its more a prequel to the OG Fable. That is what is up! There are not enough fantasy style games anymore, everythings all futurisitc and Cyberpunk now,
2025/2026 release imo for TES06 and also will start talking about the next next generation consoles by then. :D
Agreed TES6 will most likely be a next gen launch title along with a downgraded current gen release
Thays what I'm thinking, 2025 release
I have to agree. Elder Scrolls next gen launch or the end of this generation
Only online speculation. Official announcements won't be until years later
that's my thinking. I wouldn't be surprised to see this game drop at the tail of this generation or into next. It's going to spend at least 5 years in actual development and all indications are that they're still in the planning phase right. Meaning development hasn't even started. That at least 5 years is also assuming they [Bethesda or MS] don't take the extra time to do a better job of ironing out bugs and glitches these games are known to have aplenty of. Be it Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim or the Fallout series. While great, these games have all released and continue to be bug/glitch infested messes.
I'll say it again. March 25, 2024. 30th anniversary of the series. Todd Howard said years ago that he already knows the release date. What other day could it possibly be to know that far in advance?
No interest in Fable . After 3 I am done with hoping for a great Fable . 2 wasn’t bad but not great . None of the games came close to what Molyneux said he wanted to make originally. 3 was the worst one by far , no charm like the others at all and it wasn’t even fun in coop . The first 2 were decent 2 being the best but had so many bugs it made me hate it some ways . Elder Scrolls and Fallout are the only games MS bought that interest me but I don’t really want to support companies buying multiplats so they can say they have exclusives , it’s a crappy practice whoever does it and MS is the king of crap right now . Those games aren’t coming for a long time anyway so we will see what the landscape is and what MS chooses to do by then with their “exclusives” they bought to not be on other platforms .
I'm not happy about it, either, but it's a new team working on Fable. A good team. So, I'm optimistic. That being said, Lionhead lost a lot of developers that made them great. Some of them formed Media Molecule, in fact. Which is a great place to look, if you're trying to find that same creativity and charm from Black & White and Fable.
Y'all cried more than Xbox fans about the Xbox Brand not having games and are now upset at how MSFT chose to invest in gaming. Cry me a River ❄️
What the? When is Fable coming out then?!
Before Elder Scrolls 6...
Expect it in 2023. Rumors are 343 has been working on it since 2017~2018. (which is oddly when ES6 went into preproduction too)
343 huh. Where you hear that from???
My mistake 'Playground Games'... I had 343 on my mind too much when I posted I think? lol
2023? You're going to be disappointed then. (2024-2025) I can almost guarantee it.
wow ok thats gonna be a long wait then.
"post-2023 release date"? More like a 2026-27 release, most likely a crossgen title.
Hey I'd rather they take the time to make a great game. That's one of the reasons they sold to MS. To have the support and time to make a better game.
Microsoft have stated they are looking at releasing a minimum of 1 game a quarter (4 per year) in the near future. So if 2022 is the 'near future' what games do we think will release in 2022, 2023, 2024?
after Fable?? that one game they still only have a CGI teaser/trailer of?? how long of a wait would that be?
Email Playground and ask
And before any of those titles are out, Skyrim will get re-released ...... again
Ahh so they went the Square Enix route of announcing something ages before it's even close to done
Halo infinite doing great in beta with all streamers and reviewers saying about how great the game is.... N4G : no playstation game no positive articles for ya... N4G=playstation community
Well they are saying good things about gameplay, because graphics wise not really
One an Xbox One maybe but Desert Town and Orange Pipes look amazing
Graphics don't really matter in Multiplayer. 343i are going for the right thing--higher framerates.
You want graphic be my guest play flight simulator or wait forza horizon their the best there is in graphics.... Halo infinte graphic cs is beautiful and colorful + im playing all my multiplayer games on low for max fps in pc anyway
"Until after" There's too much time gap between these two words.
So....When's Fable releasing lol?
Fable next year will be an excellent game it's a bit underrated
Fable next year? Hahaha....NO!
16 times the wait
Then why was it announced so early? Reminds me of Cyberpunk 2077 teaser coming in 2013 but not releasing til 2020.
...and released severely broken
lol at some of these "predicted" releases in the comments, here is what i think. Starfield fall 2022 (confirmed) Avowed most probably mid-fall 2022 ES6 and Fable are being made by 2 completely different studios, so i do not see why people are assuming ES6 is 5-6 years away? Fable early 2023 ES6 fall 2023-mid 2024 Will be funny the knee-jerk reactions i get from this lol
I'm sure your last sentence was an effort to keep anyone from replying alas they be accused of a "knee jerk" reaction, but I just find it funny that you laugh at others predicted releases dates and then proceed to make your own which carry no more weight or accuracy then anyone else's prediction. The again "most probably" might be the most accurate prediction ever made, lol.
No, my last statement was an accurate reflection of N4G. So, after all the hype of Xbox 1st party now, our next release after starfield is what? 3 years away? I may have also made predictions, but mine are more in line with the current narrative of xbox this gen, as opposed to pencilling in release dates for next gen. FYI, the lol'ing at some "predicted" releases in the comments, are things like 2030 for ES6, it was teased 3 years ago, absolute nonsense it will release anywhere near next gen.
"No, my last statement was an accurate reflection of N4G." No that's your biased opinion of N4G and its more than just a little ironic considering I've seen plenty of knee jerk reaction reply's made by you here. Rather yours are "more in line with" or not doesn't make them any less a prediction just like anyone else's, perhaps what people should do is stop with the predictions and wait for the official release date announcements, even then things like delays are still a very real possibility which could see games pushed to a following year. ES6 for sure wont take nine years but what we can affirm based on Spencer's own comment is that it's definitely a long ways off.
I refute your "knee-jerk" claims wholeheartedly, and i offer you the chance to provide evidence of said claim. As for a reflection of N4G, just look at this comments section, full of known Sony supporters attempting to push Microsoft 1st party in to next-gen, which, predicitions or not, is absolute horse s***.
Refute it all you want, doesn't change anything. I don't have the time nor the desire to go through your comment history but anyone can if they need to verify what I said. "known Sony supporters" Oh no its those evil "Sony supporters" making predictions again. Are they really Sony supporters or is that just what you label people when they say something you dont like? Regardless, even if they are I think you let it bother you way too much, I mean by your own admission you're clearly a Microsoft supporter and I've seen you post comments in plenty of Sony articles. I'm not going to push release dates into next gen but again its fair to say many of Microsoft's games are going to require a long wait, if that makes me a "Sony supporter" for saying so then I guess that's just what I'll have to be, lol.
"Oh no its those evil "Sony supporters" making predictions again. Are they really Sony supporters or is that just what you label people when they say something you dont like?" No, they are known Sony fans, you or anyone can go through my history if you like, all you will find is praise for Sony on their controller, and design of the PS5, praise for Switch in regards to sales figures years after launch, and praise for Xbox with their direction of the gamepass model, and also their design of the Series X. But i digress, no one will do that, because they will look a bit silly with what they find. "I mean by your own admission you're clearly a Microsoft supporter and I've seen you post comments in plenty of Sony articles." Really? because i very rarely go into Sony articles, so i call BS on this as well, and offer you a chance to back up your absurd claims. I am a Microsoft supporter you got me there though!!! I am also a Nintendo supporter, Sony supporter, Samsung supporter, Valve supporter, but it would be easier to just say i am a "gamer" which supports the industry as a whole, you and others should try it, it is ok to support a different colour plastic with a name on.
so no Elder Scrolls this gen? >_<
fable / 3 years minimum wait Elder Scrolls / 4 years minimum wait 2024 / 2025 i expect both, to be much later then that
There are so many games coming between now and then that it doesnt really matter. Xbox has really stepped up in the games department. They pretty much have a stranglehold on the Western RPG market now, which is my favorite genre. These games need to be spread out so they have the room to breathe. I am hoping that Fable will hit in like September 2022, followed by Starfield in November. Then they can focus on ES6 for Holiday 2023/Early '24. I feel like they could have 2 big RPGs per year for the next few years, and that is exciting! Between what Xbox is cooking up and the big exclusives we know Sony has behind the curtains, its one hell of a time to be a gamer! Especially for multi-platform owners! I dont know about anyone else, but I absolutely feel the need to own all 3 now more than ever before! I know that seems like a costly proposition, but this is where I feel Gamepass really helps! GP is basically subsidizing my game purchases for other platforms lol. I still buy some Xbox games, but I am able to play them on GP and then buy the ones I want in my collection when they drop in price. Win/Win in my book.
Could you give me some of that optimism? Playground is still hiring for Fable, meaning they aren't in full production yet. They are using a racing engine to make an RPG, not exactly the smoothest transition. Bethesda Game Studios isn't known for speedy production. They spent 4 years between Skyrim and Fallout 4. TESVI hasn't even left the drawing board according to Todd Howard, and you expect it in a year or two after Starfield? Open world RPGs take a long time to cook, and most of what Xbox has shown are new projects.
No interest in Fable or TES6 if I'm being honest. TES has been on a downward trajectory since Oblivion and honestly the same applies to Fallout since NV (which wasn't even Bethesda). I think my days of eagerly anticipating games that aren't FromSoft are pretty much over. Here's to hoping Elden Ring lives up to the hype.
Oblivion? Says no one ever
Previously it was after Starfield, now after unknown release year / date Fable. Looks like Elder Scrolls 6 is gonna be released on next gen. Bummer!
Wow that's a loooooooong wait and it will probably be for the next generation of consoles. Looks like is going to be another dry generation for the Xbox.
Gen just started
