It has been five years since the last “Elder Scrolls” title has been released by Bethesda, and gamers have been waiting for “The Elder Scrolls 6” to be released since then. There were previous rumors that the gaming company was going to announce the title at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, but the gaming event came and went, and there’s still no sign of the project.
However, a new rumor claims that the sixth installment in the popular gaming franchise might be announced at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017. This rumor stemmed from Bethesda vice president Pete Hines’ recent statements in an interview, as the executive said that they would have enough material to talk about at the press conference next year.
Speaking with Metro, Hines said, “Given what I know about what we’re gonna have going on next year, and what we’re gonna have to talk about, I would say that we’d probably have enough stuff to fill the time.”
Though Hines did not mention any of the games that will be announced at E3 2017, many fans feel that it’s highly possible that “The Elder Scrolls 6” will be mentioned at the event, as the time is right for a new installment.
Fans have been disgruntled over Bethesda’s silence regarding the game, and some have called out Hines over the delay. A fan (via Express co.uk) recently told the executive, “Elder Scrolls is all we ever asked you for Pete…and you pretend as if you do not hear us.”
Hines replied to the fan and said that the game is “coming, just not as soon as you probably hoped.” He is said to have told a fan recently that Bethesda isn’t working on “The Elder Scrolls 6” at the moment, adding that the project is still “years and years away.”
“Fallout 4” director Todd Howard echoed Hines’ sentiments, saying that the game is still a long way off.
“It’s something that’s going to take a lot of time, what we have in mind for the game,” said Howard.
A release date for “The Elder Scrolls 6” has yet to be announced by Bethesda. The game is expected to be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
