The launch day of The Elder Scrolls VI shall not be seen by you, or your children, or your children’s children. Not for a few years or so, at least. Bethesda’s Todd Howard spoke to Kotaku about the franchise at E3 and confirmed that while the company does have plans for the future of the franchise, it’s likely that players will hear about other projects before the next installment of the series is being announced to eager fans.
This may be partly about keeping players tuned into The Elder Scrolls Online, which was revealed to be doing quite well for itself; Skyrim is also receiving a remastered edition for consoles. It’s bittersweet news for players who wanted something completely new from the series, but it does mean that you needn’t worry about your online adventures in Tamriel being derailed by a new game any time soon.
