The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim PS4 PlayStation 4 2

While we were holding out on the slim chance that Bethesda might reveal a teaser for the next instalment in its The Elder Scrolls saga last night, it seems our hopes have been crushed even further. Bethesda head Todd Howard had the chance to speak with Geoff Keighley and addressed the question that's been on everyone's minds, saying that "we actually have two other large projects we're also doing that are bigger than anything we've done. People will probably hear about those probably even before Elder Scrolls VI. And that'll make sense many years from now."

He teases that many of the ideas and aspirations it has for a sixth Elder Scrolls simply aren't feasible with current hardware and technology limitations, so we'd venture to guess that it'll be sitting on the backburner for what might just be a decade. How long do you think that we'll be waiting before we hear anything? Will the recently announced The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition be able to hold you off for a couple years?
