Forget The Elder Scrolls 6, Skyblivion is on track for a 2025 release

Forget The Elder Scrolls 6, Skyblivion is on track for a 2025 release

Forget about The Elder Scrolls VI, Skyblivion is where it's at and is on track for a 2025 release.

While fans impatiently await the release of The Elder Scrolls VI, you can look forward to the launch of an epic fan remaster.

On 11 June 2018, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls VI with a cinematic trailer that sent its passionate fans into a wave of hysteria. Sadly, since that time, it’s all gone quiet on The Elder Scrolls front with no release date in sight. In fact, despite being announced five years ago (at the time of writing), we’ve not seen a gameplay trailer or any story details. Seriously Bethesda, what gives?

Take a look at that teaser trailer below.

Fans were hoping to see or hear something about The Elder Scrolls VI during the most recent Xbox Games Showcase, but signs of the next fantasy RPG were nowhere to be seen. Though we were finally treated to Avowed gameplay, developed by Obsidian Entertainment which is set to release sometime in 2024 for PC and Xbox Series X|S.

With no Elder Scrolls VI release date in sight, thankfully, we might just have the perfect antidote until that time arrives with the Oblivion fan remaster, Skyblivion. This project is essentially an Oblivion fan remaster using Skyrim’s Creation Engine.

Skyblivion has been created by a team of talented indie developers and it’s currently set to launch in 2025 on PC. However, the developers have called upon dedicated volunteers to help push the project over the finishing line to bring it to fruition. “Upon release, our mod will be completely modular which means that the player will be able to choose what components he/she wants to have installed,” reads the description on “This includes all enhancements developed by the team such as our Landscaping Overhaul, Interior Overhaul, City Overhaul, Weapon/Armour Overhaul and much more.

It continues: “Skyblivion will be 100% FREE, but in order to play, we require our users to own both Skyrim and Oblivion including the DLCs. Without these requirements, our installer will not install the mod.”

The Oblivion fan remaster began its development cycle in one form or another way back in 2012, a year after the launch of Skyrim on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Yet, it still looks like it will be released before The Elder Scrolls VI.

In related news, Xbox chief Phil Spencer recently revealed that the release of The Elder Scrolls VI could be another five years away. What’s more, it could also be the last game of Bethesda head honcho Todd Howard.

At this time, The Elder Scrolls VI is set to be released for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
