The Elder Scrolls turns 30 years old, Bethesda revealed more about the 6th part of the game series

The Elder Scrolls, the extremely popular open-world role-playing game by Bethesda, turned 30 years old yesterday. To celebrate, the company posted a short history of the series and its innovations on social network X. In addition, they also briefly shared about the future of the series, confirming that the members of the studio is testing the first builds of The Elder Scrolls VI and had a good time with it.


In 2016, longtime director of Bethesda Game Studios, Todd Howard, has confirmed that the next Elder Scrolls game is “a very long way” away from launch. In 2018, Bethesda officially announced Elder Scrolls 6 through a very short, vague teaser that basically reveals nothing. Since then, Bethesda has kept quiet about the sequel Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011), and the studio has spent the last few years developing and launching Starfield after its acquisition by Microsoft. Howard even admitted that announcing the TES 6 in 2018 probably wasn’t a good idea, wishing the company had done it more “haphazardly.” Now that Starfield is out, Bethesda seems to be a little more forthcoming when it comes to the long-awaited fantasy RPG.

In a post detailing three decades of development of The Elder Scrolls series, starting with The Elder Scrolls: Arena in 1994, Bethesda thanked the millions of fans who helped it grow and stick around throughout. the years. The article further admits that the team members have already played the next game in the series, viz Elder Scrolls VI.

Last but not least, yes, we are developing the next chapter -The Elder Scrolls 6,” Bethesda said in its post. “Even now, returning to Tamriel and playing the early builds fills us with joy, excitement, and the promise of adventure.


Can we learn anything more about Elder Scrolls 6 from this short trailer? Actually, there is.

Assuming Bethesda is telling the truth, it looks like the next Elder Scrolls game is again — like Skyrim, Oblivion and Morrowind — will be set on the vast continent of Tamriel rather than more uncommon locations like Akavir or Pyandonea. This fits perfectly with fan theories and previous speculation that the game will be set in Hammerfell (a region in Tamriel) based on the scenery seen in the teaser.

In any case, the fact that The Elder Scrolls VI is still being developed and has its first build is good news for gamers. Now, the question is when will the new game be released, and on which platforms? Court documents and previous statements from Xbox boss Phil Spencer indicate that, unlike previous installments in the series, TES 6 will be for Xbox and PC only, bypassing PlayStation entirely.


Regarding the launch date, the court documents themselves above point to a launch date of 2026 or later. Spencer appears to have mentioned 2028 or later. If true, that would be 17 years after Skyrim’s release, meaning more than half of the entire franchise’s history would have been spent waiting for Skyrim’s successor game.

According to Todd Howard, now 54 years old, Elder Scrolls VI will likely be the last major game he directs. And because Fallout 5 will only be released after Elder Scrolls VI, so fans of the apocalyptic action role-playing game will likely have to wait until 2035 to receive good news.
