Pete Hines, Head of Publishing at Bethesda Softworks, in a recent interview with a Spanish portal vandalism commented on the development of the fantasy role-playing game The Elder Scrolls VI.
Remember, The Elder Scrolls VI was officially confirmed at E3 2018. Since then, the project hasn’t received a single new trailer and was still in the pre-production phase until recently.
According to Hines, The Elder Scrolls VI has finally moved from pre-production to active development five years after it was announced. However, production is still at an early stage.
“Yes, [в Bethesda] There are people working on The Elder Scrolls VI, but for now the studio is focused on that [Starfield]. So no, you won’t be hearing from The Elder Scrolls VI any time soon.”said Hines.
The executive added that Starfield will remain a priority for the company. “for some time” (The Shattered Space story expansion is already in development), so the wait for news about The Elder Scrolls VI will be a few years away.
Bethesda Game Studios Executive Producer Todd Howard recently admitted that he would have announced The Elder Scrolls VI rather casually and hopes to make it happen “the best fantasy world simulator”.
According to Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer, the release of The Elder Scrolls VI is at least five years away. It’s likely that the game will be exclusive to the Xbox console, but the boss refused to confirm that.
