You may be waiting a long time for The Elder Scrolls 6

Bethesda Game Studios head Todd Howard stated in an interview at E3 2016 that the developer has at least two major projects in the works before we will hear anything about the sixth installment of its popular Elder Scrolls fantasy RPG series.

Speaking with Geoff Keighley during YouTube's E3 2016 coverage, Howard admitted that The Elder Scrolls 6 is something that Bethesda Game Studios will be doing at some point, but it will be a long time before it happens. He added:

I could sit here and explain the game to you and you would say, "That sounds like you don't even have the technology. How long is that going to take?" So it's something that is going to take a lot of time for what we have in mind for that game.

Howard adds that the team's other two large projects are bigger than anything that it has done before now, and that we will likely hear about them before any news comes out on The Elder Scrolls 6. In the meantime, we will still be getting The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, the graphically remastered version of the last game in the series for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will be out on October 28.
