Pete Hines, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing at Bethesda, has confirmed that Bethesda is currently working on two – unnamed – projects that are as big as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. Pete Hines also confirmed the existence of The Elder Scrolls VI, although he did claim that we won’t see it anytime soon.
As Pete told IGN:
“The studio has two major projects, two major games that they are planning on doing before they get to an Elder Scrolls 6.”
Here is what Bethesda Game Studios Game Director Todd Howard had to say about The Elder Scrolls VI in an interview with Geoff Keighley during YouTube’s Live at E3 stream.
“That’s kind of like the elephant in the room, always, when we talk about anything, and I think it’s good to tell our fans in these moments, yes, of course we are [making Elder Scrolls 6]. It’s something we love. But it is—I have to be careful what I say—it’s a very long way off. I could sit here and explain the game to you, and you would say, ‘That sounds like you don’t even have the technology—how long is that going to take?’ And so it’s something that’s going to take a lot of time, what we have in mind for that game.”
So there you have it everyone. The Elder Scrolls VI is actually happening.
