  • Bethesda’s Pete Hines has revealed that The Elder Scrolls 6 is still years away.
  • The equally secretive Starfield will launch ahead of the fantasy RPG.
  • We’re unlikely to hear much anytime soon as Bethesda won’t be holding a digital-only E3 replacement event this summer.

We haven’t heard much about the development of The Elder Scrolls 6 for quite some time, and fans are naturally eager to know more.

Unfortunately, anyone expecting The Elder Scrolls 6 – or even a snippet of news – anytime soon is in for a shock.

The Elder Scrolls 6 Is ‘Years’ Away

Bethesda public relations VP Pete Hines has made it abundantly clear that the next entry in the much-loved franchise won’t be seeing the light of day for years.

Responding to a fan questioning when we can expect to hear more about Bethesda’s secretive The Elder Scrolls 6, Hines offered some disappointing news in a tone that suggests the VP may be getting fed up about having to field the same question repeatedly.

It’s after Starfield, which you pretty much know nothing about. So if you’re coming at me for details now and not years from now, I’m failing to properly manage your expectations.

The point about managing expectations is particularly pertinent. Few would fault Bethesda for wanting to tread carefully when it comes to future releases after the disastrous launch and subsequent widespread criticism of Fallout 76.

The most recent Wastelanders update, launched last month, has done much to improve the game, but Bethesda will be eager to avoid anything similar in the future.

As for the next big release in the Bethesda pipeline, sci-fi RPG Starfield is steeped in nearly as much secrecy as The Elder Scrolls 6. But, as Hines points out, it will release first.

Aside from a frustratingly short mood-setting trailer way back at E3 2018, we’ve heard nothing concrete about Starfield for a while now. And with Bethesda opting out of a digital-only E3 replacement event, we’re unlikely to hear anything new soon.

So there you have it: The Elder Scrolls 6 is years away. Two, five, or ten? Who knows?
