Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out in 2011 and it has been six years since and there is no sign of Elder Scrolls 6. With Bethesda releasing Skyrim on Switch, many are wondering is Bethesda is even aware of the fans demand about Elder Scrolls 6 and according to Pete Hines the company is aware of fans wanting the next entry.
Speaking with Games Radar, Bethesda Vice President of PR and Marketing Pete Hines expressed that he is worried about what to tell to the series’ fans. He added that a few years back he went to Bethesda Game Studios Director Todd Howard to ask for guidance on what to tell the fans.
Everybody’s going to ask us about The Elder Scrolls 6. You have to help me, you have to help me come out and say what the studio’s path is, and when The Elder Scrolls 6 is coming, to try and manage expectations.
It seems that the game is still not in development as previously Bethesda said back in June that next entry in the franchise is not in development. Also, Bethesda is being very careful about the setting the fans expectation on the game.
It’s not what you would call a big, active project right now. There are some other ones that we have going. We know it’s important to our fans, and we need to be careful about setting expectations. It’s certainly a game that we’ll be making one day. I could sit here and explain to you exactly what we want it to be.
Elder Scrolls is a long-running RPG franchise developed by Bethesda and the latest entry in the series in Skyrim which is also due to launch on Nintendo Switch later this year.
