For many gamers, the beyond-belief fantasy world of The Elder Scrolls has been a cornerstone of their gaming experiences. So when the news hit that Elder Scrolls 6, the next installment in the widely heralded series, was officially in development, fans all over the world were ecstatic. However, Bethesda has confirmed that we probably won’t get any substantial information about the game for a while. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what we do know about Elder Scrolls 6 and what you can expect from it. 

What we do know about Elder Scrolls 6 is that it is in early development. Bethesda’s Todd Howard has confirmed that the studio is indeed working on a new game in the series, and has described it as a “very long way off.” Howard also stated that the company is currently working on other projects, so Elder Scrolls 6 is nowhere near being the top priority. Therefore, we can’t expect much information anytime soon. 

Some speculate the theory that Elder Scrolls 6 could be a prequel to Skyrim, the fifth installment of the game’s series. In a Reddit AMA, Howard teased that he had been considering a prequel, set in the realm of Akavir. This location had fans raving, as Akavir was only ever mentioned in passing in earlier installments of the series. While nothing is confirmed yet, this is a popular theory fans are passionate about. 

We do not have an official release date for Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda is known for taking their time to develop games, with the gap between Skyrim and its predecessor, Oblivion, being five years. But, considering the small amount of information we have on the game so far, it’s safe to say that there will be a few more years until the release date is announced. 

Though the release date is unknown and potentially far off, some are already speculating about what changes and updates the game could bring. Better graphics and improved AI are almost certainly guaranteed since technology and hardware have come a long way since the release of Skyrim. Fans are also hoping for a world that feels more alive and fulfills the promises made in the previous games. 

Bethesda’s track record of exceptional games, like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, has given fans high expectations for Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda has promised the game will be worth the wait. And, based on their successful track record and the overwhelming anticipation of fans, many believe it will be. 


While we can’t expect much information about The Elder Scrolls 6 for a while, fans can rely on Bethesda’s proven track record to create an exceptional gaming experience, spanning an expansive world. Rest assured, the approval that Bethesda possesses guarantees a fantastic game is in the making. So, we will wait patiently for the release of Elder Scrolls 6, knowing that it will be worth it.
