At E3 2018, Bethesda announced its new upcoming IP, Starfield. Starfield will be a first-person role-playing single-player space-themed adventure game. However, and similarly to last year, Bethesda will not reveal any additional details or news for it in 2020.
Bethesda’s Pete Hines has confirmed this. And while I’m pretty sure that the development of both the new The Elder Scrolls and Starfield games is going well, the team is most likely focused on Fallout 76.

From what we know so far, Starfield will be using an upgraded version of the Creation Engine. The game will also target next-generation platforms. Thus, let’s at least hope that Bethesda has resolved some of the issues that plagued its previous titles.
Pete Hines has also stated that we should not expect any news for the next The Elder Scrolls game. According to Hines, we won’t hear anything at all for The Elder Scrolls 6 for a long time.
Hi! Sorry, we don't have any news on TES6 and won't for a long time. Hope you're doing well and staying safe.

My guess is that we may hear something about these two franchises at the next E3 event. So yeah, don’t hold your breath and be sure to stay away from any fishy rumors that may surface these coming months.
