The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited_20150609092716

It seems like you could well be playing The Elder Scrolls 6 on PS5/Xbox Two/whatever the hell the next wave of consoles are called.

Shortly after the megaton action-RPG was announced back at E3, Bethesda boss Todd Howard admitted the game was merely in “pre-production”, and thus was a looooong way off. New comments from Matt Firor of ZeniMax Online Studios back up the thought that the next Elder Scrolls is probably years away from launching.

“The easiest thing is look at how it was announced; it was Starfield and then Elder Scrolls 6,” Firor said in an interview with Gamespot. “You can go back and count the years between Bethesda Game Studios releases, and you’ll get the idea it’s not coming anytime soon.” He then added that by the time the RPG epic finally hits, “there will be a different console generation by then, I’m sure.”

I for one look forward to playing The Elder Scrolls 6 at some point in 2024 on an 8K TV that’s thinner than a sheet of A4. At least it gives me plenty of time to finally finish Skyrim.
