Since news about The Elder Scrolls 6: Skyrim 2 (or whatever title it will be given) broke out, gamers have been patiently waiting and speculating when the new game will hit the market. Bethesda, however, remained tightlipped about the matter, leaving players on the prowl for any newsbreak about the release date of Skyrim’s sequel.
Earlier this year, there have been rumors about The Elder Scrolls 6: Argonia rolling out in the Entertainment Expo (E3) this June 2016, but Bethesda’s executives hinted during earlier interviews that the game is not arriving any time soon – no, probably not this year. The developer’s vice-president and Pete Hanes explained that they are taking their time with the new game, emphasizing that they are more concerned about the quality of their product than the number of titles they release.
At the DICE conference last March, Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard revealed crucial information about their upcoming games. Howard shared that they are working on three, big long-term projects that are largely different than anything they have done before.
In a recent interview with GameIndustry.biz, however, Howard corrected his earlier statement, saying that it was wrong for him to mention any numbers because they have so many things going on, and these could add up smaller or bigger than expected. He also emphasized that given the number of projects they’re handling, no one should expect to hear about their games anytime soon. This means that while fans are expecting to the see much-awaited game in E3 2016, The Elder Scrolls 6 may not show up on the shelves until 2019. Rumor has it that Bethesda will likely stick to their 4-year release gap, focusing their effort on the game’s development rather than on hyping the market.
So, to the excited fans out there, a little more patience. A month from now, everything will be confirmed – that is if The Elder Scrolls 6 will ended be unveiled at the E3.
In meantime, enjoy the recently released Dark Brotherhood online. This DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is now available for PC and Mac versions, and PS4 and Xbox One versions later in June. ESO Plus members can avail of game pack for free.
