Todd Howard has some good news for fans of The Elder Scrolls series who are eagerly awaiting the long-awaited sixth installment.
Bethesda Game Studios is currently primarily focused on Starfield, but after that the studio will shift its focus to The Elder Scrolls VI. Howard has previously stated that the project should be relevant for decades. This is of course good news for fans, as it means that the game will be supported for a long time.
It’s been about ten years since TES: Skyrim was released, and it’s still going strong, partly because of the quality of the base product, but also because of Bethesda’s commitment to releasing it.
We’re gonna make sure we do this right for everyone. People have been playing games for a long time, you know, Skyrim is 11 years old now, and it’s still probably our most popular game, and so we don’t see it getting any less popular.
People are probably going to be playing it in 10 years, so we have to think, okay, people are going to be playing the next Elder Scrolls game for a decade, two decades, and that really changes your idea of how we’re making it.
The Elder Scrolls VI is not expected to be released until 2025.
