The Elder Scrolls 6 Starfield Bethesda 1

Bethesda took the opportunity at E3 2018 to announce two new titles: Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6. Both games, which are in production at its acclaimed Bethesda Game Studios team, are hotly anticipated releases, but when will we learn more about them? “A while from now and a really long while from now – respectively,” communications bigwig Pete Hines told

He explained that the reason the titles were announced so early was because it didn’t want fans to worry it was ditching traditional single player games after announcing the online focused Fallout 76. “Timeframe-wise, it would still be about as long as you'd expect when you look at Fallout 3 to Skyrim to Fallout 4 to Fallout 76,” he said. “It's still going to be those periods of time, that hasn't changed.”

There were about three or four years between the releases Hines mentioned, but Fallout 76 does muddy matters slightly because it’s been mostly led by a different team. Our guess? You’re probably getting Starfield in 2020 at the earliest, and then The Elder Scrolls 6 a good three or four years on from that. We’re talking deep into PlayStation 5 territory, then.
