‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ Release Date: Sixth Entry Could Come Out in 2024 as Hinted by Pete Hines’ Previous Statement
“The Elder Scrolls 6” has been heavily requested by a lot of gamers as its predecessor is approaching eight years old. Unfortunately, Bethesda has yet to break their silence what they’re planning for the sixth entry of the franchise, let alone provide a release date for the much-anticipated title.
As such, obsessed fans have been carefully scrutinizing the previous statements of Bethesda bigwigs to find clues when “The Elder Scrolls 6” will hit the shelves. And one particular statement that caught the attention of these eagle-eyed fans came from a 2018 interview with Bethesda’s SVP of Global Marketing and Communications Pete Hines, SN reported.
To put it briefly, Hines previously said they haven’t change the timelines in which how they’re handling title releases within the studio. He added that the time in between the launching of “Fallout 3,” “Skyrim,” and “Fallout 4” will be the same for future games. As such, Reddit user Doctor_Hellsturm speculates that “The Elder Scrolls 6” could come out in 2024.
The aforementioned titles have a three-year gap between them. “Fallout 76” was released Nov. 14, 2018. “Starfield” will most likely follow in 2021 since Hines also said that this new IP would come out before “The Elder Scrolls 6.”
Going by this pattern, the sixth entry for the franchise could potentially fall in the year 2024. Of course, it’s important to remember that this is merely speculation at the moment since – as mentioned earlier – Bethesda is still reticent about the title. This isn’t surprising since most of the studio’s effort is being given to the development of “Starfield.”
But a 2024 release date does go in line with the previous statement of Bethesda game director Todd Howard, saying that it will take years before “The Elder Scrolls 6” is pushed out the door. Aside from the creation of “Starfield,” the delay may also be due to the ambition of Howard and what his vision is for the title.
Put simply, the technology needed to bring this vision to reality still isn’t here. Whatever the case, “The Elder Scrolls 6” is a long way off with the information drought surrounding the title expected to persist in the coming years.
