There were some rumours and speculations earlier today suggesting that The Elder Scrolls VI could come out in 2019. However, this is perhaps the most ridiculous prediction we’ve heard so far. And in case you believed it, well… you should not as The Elder Scrolls 6 is definitely not coming out this year.
For starters, we know that Bethesda is working on both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6. Not only that but we expect Starfield to come out sooner than the next Elder Scrolls game. If that’s Bethesda’s plan then there is no way to release two major games, for which we haven’t seen anything at all, in less than twelve months.
At E3 2018, Bethesda stated that the game was in a pre-production phase. As such, there is no way, even for an Early Access game, to come out in less than a year from now. Not only that, but these past few months Bethesda has been busy with Fallout 76; a game that has flopped and we are pretty sure that the team will be doing its best in 2019 to further polish it in order to turn the tides.
Both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 target next-gen platforms and there have been hints that both the next Playstation and Xbox consoles may come out in 2020. So yeah, a 2019 release date for TES6 is ridiculous.
At first I wasn’t sure whether it was worth publishing this article but I’m pretty sure that some media outlets will try to use this analyst in order to boost their hits, regardless of it sounding so ridiculous. So even though we are not analysts ourselves, we’re going to make a prediction and say that The Elder Scrolls 6 will not release in 2019. If we are right, then perhaps we are doing a better job than some of these “analysts” out there. And if we are not, we’ll start sharing all of the predictions that this analyst does over the next years. Sounds fair?
