E3 was full of surprises and one of the best conferences to take place there was of Bethesda’s, which included big games like Fallout 76 and out of nowhere the new Elder Scrolls game called The Elder Scrolls 6.
The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced by Bethesda which just confirmed the title and the game with nothing else about the game. It was announced in a trailer which showed us some trees and mountains. In the end, it showed off the logo of the game including the title.
It’s confirmed now that The Elder Scrolls 6 is coming but what’s unknown is the release date, story and whether it’s an online or single player game. Since Fallout 76 was announced as an online-only game everyone has been wondering that, will this be the same case with The Elder Scrolls 6, but it is not.
Pete Hines, who’s the VP of marketing at Bethesda revealed in an interview that The Elder Scrolls 6 is just a single player game.
Pete Hines said:
[The announcement] also helps convince folks, like, look, this is not forever-more what we’re doing. We are going to do a game that’s just single-player next time around, and yes, we are going to get to Elder Scrolls 6. There’s going to be a long time before we’re ready to talk about what those are, because we want the time between when we start to talk about it and it comes out to not be two years long or three years long. But it just gives folks a better idea of where we’re headed and understanding what the studio is working on and trying to do.
It’s clear that Bethesda is going into a new direction with Fallout 76 but they intend to stick to the single player campaigns Bethesda is known for with their upcoming Elder Scrolls 6.
The Elder Scrolls 6 is currently in production and is slated to release after Starfield which is in early development so don’t expect the game to arrive until 2020.
