The Elder Scrolls 6 is still in a very early “design” phase

A lot of gamers were expecting to hear or see something about The Elder Scrolls 6 at E3 2021. However, and as Todd Howard admitted, the game is still in a very early development stage.

As Todd told The Telegraph, gamers and media should think of TES6 as being in a design phase.

“It’s good to think of The Elder Scrolls 6 as still being in a design [phase]… but we’re checking the tech: ‘Is this going to handle the things we want to do in that game?’ Every game will have some new suites of technology so Elder Scrolls 6 will have some additions on to Creation Engine 2 that that game is going to require.”

It’s obvious that Bethesda will be focusing on finishing and supporting Starfield for the next couple of years. The team also has to maintain support for both TES Online and Fallout 76. So yeah, don’t expect to be playing The Elder Scrolls 6 anytime soon!
