Bethesda Studios is the creator of one of the most popular games in recent memory, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. Skyrim is the fifth installment in the Elder Scrolls franchise and to this day, the fan base is still going strong.
It is going so strong, in fact, that there are a lot of new mods constantly being worked on to entice players to keep playing the game from time to time.
Now, back in the E3 2016 event, Bethesda Studios said that The Elder Scrolls 6 is already a project that’s going to happen.
This means that players are assured that there will be a sixth installment but it is still unsure when it will be released.
Fans can only speculate but most of them are optimistic that they will get a new Elder Scrolls game in a year or two. Or maybe more…
Just recently, Bethesda Studios’ Vice President of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, addressed a gamer’s query on Twitter.
This gamer asked Hines if they are currently working on the sixth installment of the Elder Scrolls franchise, to which he replied, “we aren’t working on TES6 at the moment”.
This is kind of vague, but one thing is for sure: we are not getting a new Elder Scrolls game in the near future (probably three years from now).
What Hines said was vague because it doesn’t quite answer where the company is now with regards to the new Elder Scrolls game.
Have they already done some coding and some graphics for the new game? Have they already done pre-production and are just waiting for post-production (making physical copies of the game)?
I guess, for now, players of the Elder Scrolls saga will have to wait for a couple of years to get the new installment in the franchise.
But, do not lose hope. In the E3 event, Bethesda Studios said that they are going to release a remastered edition of Skyrim.
They’ve given us a glimpse of the remastered edition and it looks absolutely wonderful. I love the fact that every detail of the game has been improved graphically speaking.
Players can also hope for some new content, albeit not that large scale. Still, it is promising to see one of the most successful games being remastered to full HD.
Could it be another game like Fallout? Or could it be another open-world adventure game like Skyrim? Or could it be both? Who knows; only time will tell.
It is quite sad that the company is still focusing on other things than creating the next installment of the Elder Scrolls saga.
Still, if you want to get the remastered edition of Skyrim, it will be released on October 28 of this year and it will be available for the PC as well as the Xbox One and Playstation 4 game consoles.
