'The Elder Scrolls 6' release date rumors: Bethesda confirms game will be produced, but not in the immediate future


Bethesda nailed it when it launched the 2011 open world action role-playing video game, “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,” gaining huge success across the gaming industry. And given that it was deemed as the most commercially successful installment in “The Elder Scrolls” series, the expectation for a sequel was also high. But fast forward to today, or about five years since the launch, the game developer hasn’t offered anything yet.

But good news for the eager fans of the video game series, Bethesda vice president for public relations and marketing Pete Hines revealed via Twitter that the next installation, “The Elder Scrolls VI,” may still not be in the development stage, but they’re going to “make it eventually.”

Per CNET, Bethesda confessed back in June that the highly anticipated game wasn’t in development, fueling rumors and maybe some disappointment from fans that the game may never be produced at all. Well, it also doesn’t help that the game developer isn’t straight in revealing what’s in and what’s not since the statement could mean a lot of things, including the possibility that it may already be in the planning stage or it’s not really even in consideration for the time being.

As a response to the constant barrage of questions about “The Elder Scrolls VI’s” existence, Hines had some pretty strong words in an interview with MMORPG.com. “This studio is not a vending machine. They’re not a two-button vending machine, where first we press Elder Scrolls and then we press Fallout,” he said, visibly trying to defend Bethesda in its decision to focus on other game titles as of the moment.

While there have been a few good stuff related to the “Elder Scrolls” video game series released in the past couple of years, including “The Elder Scrolls Online,” it simply wouldn’t replace the itch for a new game title.
