News on The Elder Scrolls 6 is Still Quite a Ways Out

Bethesda wants to "properly manage your expectations" about The Elder Scrolls 6.

Fans have been waiting a long time for more news on The Elder Scrolls 6. Nearly two years, to be exact. But according to Bethesda Senior VP of Marketing and Communications, Pete Hines, they should prepare to wait a lot longer. 

New info won't be released any time soon. 

Responding to a recent tweet, Hines said that details on the highly-anticipated sequel to The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim won't start trickling out until after the launch of Starfield, the studio's next game. 

"It's after Starfield, which you pretty much know nothing about. So if you're coming at me for details now and not years from now, I'm failing to properly manage your expectations."

Starfield was first announced alongside The Elder Scrolls 6 during Bethesda's E3 2018 presentation. All we really know about Starfield so far is that it's set in space, it's an RPG, and that it's been in development "for years," according to Director of Bethesda Games Todd Howard. 

Howard has also said that like The Elder Scrolls 6, fans will need to be "patient" for more Starfield news, too. With that in mind, it seems we'll all be waiting well beyond 2020 for TES 6 info, indeed. 

As always, stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Bethesda news, including that for Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6, as we learn it.
