The Elder Scrolls 6 release date is a long, long way off according to Bethesda

The Elder Scrolls 6 release date is a long, long way off according to Bethesda

Are we there yet?

Todd Howard, the big cheese at Bethesda, has said that The Elder Scrolls VI is nowhere near ready yet and that we'll be twiddling our thumbs in Skyrim for a while waiting for the newest entry.

Is this surprising? At the start of 2022, we found out that the game was in pre-production, four years on from its original reveal during E3 2018. Even though Bethesda is keeping its cards close to its chest, we are able to ascertain a little amount about the game. In 2014, an internal memo mentioned Project Greenwood, and Greenwood is a city in Valenwood, a province in Tamriel. Valenwood has not been shown off in the series yet however the glimpse that we got at E3 2018 seemed to suggest it would be Hammerfall. If your head isn't spinning on your shoulders following these The Elder Scrolls VI rumours, you simply aren't doing it right.

Once again, Howard has been reluctant to share a lot on the status of The Elder Scrolls VI outside of the fact that it exists. Being interviewed by Lex Fridman on the podcast published on 30 November, he said that he has a "vague idea" of the release window for the game and admitted he wished he could speed things up for fans.

"I wish it was soon. We want them out too, you know? I wish they didn’t take as long as they did but they do," explained Howard, sounding like a dentist dealing with a severe set of wisdom teeth in his patient. "Look, if I could go back in time it would never have been my plan to wait as long as it’s taken for it." Well, we'll be all the more grateful for The Elder Scrolls VI when it arrives.
