The Elder Scrolls 6: Studio boss explains why you’ve had to wait for 10 years

In an interview, the well-known studio manager of Bethesda Softworks Todd Howard revealed why fans of The Elder Scrolls series have had to wait more than 10 years for a Skyrim successor. Howard also comments on another popular game saga, but at the moment the project is still in its infancy.

The Elder Scrolls 6: where is the Skyrim sequel?

Skyrim will celebrate its tenth birthday on November 11, 2021. Thanks to a new edition and dozens of mods that have completely changed the game at times, it feels as if the RPG classic hasn’t rusted much. In addition, Bethesda is also releasing a new version of the RPG hit for the anniversary, which makes some improvements and also finally lets you fish in the waters of Skyrim.

But fans have been asking for years: Where’s The Elder Scrolls 6? Bethesda’s studio manager Todd Howard is also likely asked this question several times a day. In an interview with IGN, he took a stand and revealed why the development of The Elder Scrolls 6 is taking so long:

“Everything takes a little longer than we’d like. But we want to make sure we’re doing everything right. We’re not going to say it’s worth the long wait. But we hope that it will do justice to the series (…) “

But that is not the only reason for the delays, according to Howard. In the further interview he explains that after the publication of Skyrim, the team had the wish to deal with other games first (Source: IGN). The developers are currently working on Starfield, which is due to appear in November 2022.

Do you remember the E3 announcement for The Elder Scrolls 6? Here you can have a look at it again:

Fallout 5: Howard makes a vague statement about the post-apocalypse RPG

Not only does The Elder Scrolls 6 come up during the interview, Fallout 5 is also the topic of conversation for a moment:

“Well, fallout is really part of our DNA. We have worked with other people from time to time – I can’t say what’s going to happen. So far we have a one-pager for Fallout 5, it says what we want to do. “

In other words: The Bethesda team has initial ideas about the direction in which Fallout 5 could go, but there is no concrete development plan yet. We’ll keep you posted on both games.
