Bethesda’s PAX East panel happened yesterday and featured Todd Howard, director and executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios confirming that unfortunately, neither ‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ nor ‘Starfield’ will be at E3 this year.
“Before everyone asks, please be patient,” said Howard speaking about the two games.
It’s going to be a long time. It’s not something we’re going to be talking about at E3, either of those games, this year. And so patience, please, but you know, given the anniversary, we did want to give everybody a taste…
From what Todd said, it seems Bethesda wants to focus on delivering the best quality possible to their fans. We all remember last year with Fallout 76’s horrendous launch.
Speaking further about Starfield and Howard revealed that Starfield’s release date is many years away, same looks to be the case with The Elder Scrolls 6.
Would it have been better if it was some years from now and we just go, ‘Surprise, we’re making a game called Starfield, and it’s out X months later?’ Yeah. For sure,” admitted Hines. “But at the same time, there is also value in every day between there people aren’t freaking out about us making Fallout 76 as an online-only game as a service and this is all they’re ever making.
He went on further to say:
I try really hard to manage people’s expectations. It’s not like ‘Fallout 76 this year, Starfield next year, and then TES6 the year after.’ The timeline isn’t any different. What’s different is just trying to be transparent and say, ‘Don’t freak out, the next thing we’re doing is single-player [in Starfield], [and] we are making TES6.
Fans can look forward to Doom Eternal and more set to release in 2019. Once again, you’ll be able to see the Bethesda E3 2019 conference on June 9 at 5 PM, Pacific Time. We’ll be covering more Bethesda news right here so make sure to stay tuned.
