The Elder Scrolls 6 will differ from Skyrim in a major way, says Todd Howard

The Elder Scrolls 6 will differ from Skyrim in a major way, says Todd Howard

Todd has new plans for the next Elder Scrolls entry

Todd Howard has been sharing his plans for the future of The Elder Scrolls 6 this week and it seems the director of Bethesda does not want to make the same mistakes again.

This week saw an interview between Howard and Youtuber MrMattyPlays which saw the pair discuss everything and anything relating to Bethesda.

This included future projects such as The Elder Scrolls 6 and also any possible remakes of some Bethesda classics such as Fallout 2. Spoiler alert, it isn’t happening.

However, what Howard has realised is that the team should have spent more time supporting The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4.

"We would look back at Skyrim, which we’re still updating to a small extent and there’s all of the creations and mods there -- still a hugely played game," he explained. "Same with Fallout 4. That we wish we had supported them longer, and we’re still doing work there."

Although both titles welcomed multiple DLCs and next-gen upgrades, Howard believes they should have still had longer support cycles and that is something the team will focus on for upcoming projects such as The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5.

“As we go into Elder Scrolls 6, with all these games, you got to start now by thinking about a 10-year horizon. How do we support a game for that long?"

"We know people are going to play it for a long time and so it’s not just what it means for content. It goes further than that," Howard continued. "The type of game, what it means for your character, what it means for other things to say, 'Hey, can this be something that you come back to?'

We see that with Skyrim. What people do in the game today, even though it's popular, what are people doing when they come back to the game after putting it down for a few years?"

It seems as though Bethesda will support upcoming titles “on a month-to-month” basis so it remains to be seen what total support from the team will look like for these highly-anticipated titles.
