Elder Scrolls VI Is “A Very Long Way Off”


Todd Howard, chief game creator at Bethesda Game Studios, has stated today that The Elder Scrolls VI is still a “long way off”. When pressed on the game’s existence by Geoff Keighly, during a Youtube Live At E3 interview, Howard stated:

That’s kind of like the elephant in the room always when we talk about anything. And I think it’s good in these moments to tell our fans, ‘Yes, of course we are. It’s something we love.’ But it is–you know, 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 is something that is going to take a lot of time what we have in mind for that game.

And we actually have two other large projects we’re also doing that are bigger than anything we’ve done. People will probably hear about those probably even before Elder Scrolls VI. And that’ll make sense many years from now.

During Bethesda’s E3 showcase on Sunday, Howard revealed the release date for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, as well as Fallout 4’s 3 new DLC packs.
