The Elder Scrolls 6 may be fully released soon. At the very least, a combination of new rumors and some speculation suggests that it’s probably on the horizon. Bethesda unveiled The Elder Scrolls 6 at E3 2018 with a very confusing teaser trailer. Since then, I haven’t seen anything in the game and I’ve heard virtually nothing. Not only is there no release window yet, but nothing is said about platforms under development other than PC. However, some or all of this is subject to change soon.
According to industry insider Jeff Grab, Xbox is currently planning to host some Bethesda event once the acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Media is complete. At this time, there is no announcement as to when the deal will be completed, and Grubb is not immediately offering a more specific schedule. In addition, Grubb makes no mention of The Elder Scrolls 6, but says Microsoft and Bethesda will discuss more about the deal, and under the former what the future of the latter will look like.
In addition to all this, there are new rumors from Microsoft insider Paul Thurrot. He says Microsoft plans to host a “New Game Features” event on March 23rd. So are these two events related? Well, so far, no one has the answer to this million-dollar question, but if so, it’s not unreasonable to think that The Elder Scrolls 6 can raise its head at such an event. If they are not related, it is unlikely that they will appear in this March 23 event. And so far, if the Bethesda event mentioned above is separate and occurs before E3 suggests, like Grubb, there is no guarantee that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be there.
In the past, Bethesda has suggested that The Elder Scrolls fans have to wait a very long time to watch the game, and this wait is almost over as Starfield hasn’t been revealed yet. It’s hard to imagine. That said, for now, fans of The Elder Scrolls want the wait to actually be almost over.
For now, all information that is informal and subject to change is purely speculative, so take it all with a grain of salt.
The Elder Scrolls 6 is under development for PC and currently has no specific terms for additional platforms or release dates.
