A list of highly anticipated AAA video games launching on PlayStation 5 has been making headlines. Making it more eye-catching is the inclusion of some very elusive titles such as “The Elder Scrolls 6.”

‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ is already expected as a PS5-compatible title

Fans of the action role-playing game series have been demanding to know about the “The Elder Scrolls 6” release date window for years. While its development has been confirmed since 2018, Bethesda Softworks has been telling gamers that the next installment is not slated to launch for several years.

The curiosity surrounding the release date of “The Elder Scrolls 6” might be revived once more as the game appears in the list of expected titles for PS5. The list, reportedly shown in a recent issue of PlayStation Magazine, has Bethesda’s two much-awaited projects, “Starfield” and “The Elder Scrolls 6” next to each other.

Despite adding “The Elder Scrolls 6” to the list, the magazine reminded video game fans that it is still “years away.” What Bethesda bosses have confirmed is that “Starfield” will arrive first before the next journey to Tamriel. As it stands, not many details have been released about “Starfield,” suggesting that it is also unlikely getting released for at least the next 12 months.

Aside from “The Elder Scrolls 6” and “Starfield,” the list also mentioned other titles that have yet to be announced by their respective publishers. This could mean that including these games on the list is more of a placeholder or a wish list rather than a matter-of-factly catalog. There is no doubt, though, that the PS5 can handle whatever Bethesda and ZeniMax have in store for the next game.

Bethesda brings ‘ESO’ and its latest chapter to Google Stadia

Since “The Elder Scrolls 6” is obviously still far into the future, video game fans might want to focus first on “The Elder Scrolls Online” and its recently released chapter titled “Greymoor.” It just went live on PC and Mac this week while it is scheduled to go live on PS4 and Xbox One on June 9.

However, the bigger surprise this week was the announcement that “The Elder Scrolls Online” is going to launch on Google Stadia, as well as “Greymoor,” starting June 16. Stadia is the newest gaming platform that mainly uses cloud services, allowing people to play video games just by having an ample Wi-Fi connection and even without top-of-the-line gaming PCs and consoles. The only downside is Stadia is not yet widely available worldwide.
