The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced as being in development at E3 2018 which is was a bit out of character for Bethesda as it tends not to announce a game so far in advance. The company, however, wanted to assure fans the game was in the works.
Bethesda has always said Starfield would come before ES6, and zero details on the game have been provided. The studio did say ES6 it was being designed to be played for a decade or more, like Skyrim, and work wouldn’t fully start on it until Starfield is out the door – which means sometime after November 11, 2022.
Recently, Bethesda Games Studios director Todd Howard spoke with IGN and in the interview, he discussed the release gap between Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls 6.
