Elder Scrolls 6 in Development... But Not Right Now?
During YouTube's Live at E3 stream, Bethesda Game Studios' Director and Executive Producer Todd Howard said in an interview that they are going to make an Elder Scrolls 6, but it may be a long time before it's released.
According to a tweet from Pete Hines, the Vice President of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, the game may not even be in development at this time.

While this statement isn't 100% clear, it could possibly mean that the game is just in it's pre-production and planning stage, but this has not been confirmed.
Bethesda is busy working on two other large projects that will most likely be released before Elder Scrolls 6 is announced, and they are also making spin-off and mobile games. The Elder Scrolls Legends is a card game spin-off that's currently in the works and will be released for the iOS and PC later this year. There is also the Skyrim remaster, which will be released on October 28, 2016 for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
While we may not see Elder Scrolls 6 anytime soon, there's plenty of other upcoming Bethesda titles on the way.
