We've always known that The Elder Scrolls VI is a game we won't be seeing for a very long time, but that still hasn't stopped fans from pestering Bethesda's Pete Hines about it. The next instalment in the huge RPG franchise releases after the publisher's new IP, Starfield, meaning that news and details surrounding that sixth entry are still years away.

Hines clarified this in a tweet overnight, saying: "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."

Pete Hines also went on to explain that Starfield's unveiling will be coming "someday". It doesn't sound like Bethesda has any immediate plans to reveal its new game set in space, which means that we can say with a lot of certainty that Starfield is a PlayStation 5 game. The same goes for The Elder Scrolls VI.

You have to question why the Maryland-based company decided to announce the two RPGs nearly two years ago at its E3 2018 press conference when we are still no closer to hearing more project details. We suppose it puts a stop to the fanbase constantly asking where the next Elder Scrolls game is, but then the PlayStation 4 generation has been completely devoid of a new title. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition doesn't exactly cut it anymore.
