So many surprises!
After what seemed like an age, The Elder Scrolls 6 has been confirmed to be in the works. Bethesda boss Todd Howard finally confirmed a new Elder Scrolls is on the way at E3 2018 – and we couldn’t be happier.
Over the past three years, however, details on The Elder Scrolls 6 have been a bit light; there was no appearance at E3 2019, no E3 at all in 2020 and Bethesda has been quite clear that it won’t be talking about The Elder Scrolls 6 before it’s ready to do so.
A great deal has also changed since that initial reveal, too. Not only has the PS5 and Xbox Series X launched, but Bethesda has also been acquired by Microsoft, leaving fans wondering whether or not the game is going to be a platform exclusive – especially given Xbox boss Phil Spencer’s remarks that future Bethesda games will be exclusive to platforms “where Game Pass exists”.
We’re hoping that this will be the year we hear more about the future of The Elder Scrolls 6 and get some solid answers on Bethesda and Microsoft’s plans for its release. And with Bethesda/Microsoft planning a showcase for this Summer (likely June), an update this year on ES6 is looking increasingly likely.
