It was back in the year 2018 when Bethesda Game Studios announced that the Elder Scrolls 6 is in development. However, since that initial announcement it has been rather still in terms of official announcements is in the realm of official announcements. This could be due to the fact that they have given priority to the sci-fi RPG huge, Starfield, which is scheduled to release in the month of November 2022. It's only the getting to know more about Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 still has no release date and a specific release date. So it could be that we need to wait for a while before we get to know the details of The Elder Scrolls 6 in the least amount of details.

Since it's been 10 years since the debut of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim However it's safe to say that fans are eager for information on the direction the series is going to take in the future. However, it's possible that the one place it's not going to be going is PS5. Since Microsoft's purchase of Bethesda fans have been asking whether The Elder Scrolls 6 will be an Xbox exclusive. Since Starfield being confirmed to be an Xbox exclusive, along with Xbox chief Phil Spencer's assertion that the next Bethesda games will only be available on Xbox platforms "where Game Pass exists" It's definitely looking like this will be the case.

There's still plenty to be learned regarding The Elder Scrolls 6 but we've looked around the web for the latest information and speculation regarding the game. We've gathered all the information in this helpful guide to help you stay informed. We'll update it regularly as new information is released, so check back regularly.

The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

Don't put your hopes on The Elder Scrolls 6 release date. You will not explore its dark dungeons in the near future.

Although Bethesda announced it at their E3 event in 2018, not much other than the logo itself was shown. There's no title or release date. Todd Howard said that the game is coming out following Starfield which is the next major IP, and Xbox Director Phil Spencer has said it will not be released until the end of Fable 4. Since Starfield isn't due to release until November 2022 and Fable hasn't even got an official release date The waiting is for Elder Scrolls 6 is set to be an extremely long wait.

Bethesda Games Studios director Todd Howard acknowledged this in a 2021 chat in 2021 with The Telegraph, stating: "It's good to think of The Elder Scrolls 6 as still being in a design [phase ]... but we're checking the tech: 'Is this going to handle the things we want to do in that game?' Every game will have some new suites of technology so Elder Scrolls 6 will have some additions on to Creation Engine 2 that that game is going to require."

So, we can expect The Elder Scrolls 6 to be released in 2024 at latest, following Bethesda has granted Starfield at the very least two years to shine.


The only footage available from Elder Scrolls 6 is a brief video that shows the logo of the game. Beyond this, we're waiting for a long time to learn more.

Here's the trailer for the announcement:


The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

According to reports, it will be an Xbox exclusive, similar to Starfield

Starfield is confirmed to be an Xbox exclusive, but for a lot of doubts remain about The Elder Scrolls 6 as there is no official confirmation or confirmed by Bethesda or Microsoft at this point. According the GamesBeat writer Jeff Grubb, The Elder Scrolls 6 is also "planned" as an Xbox exclusive. Grubb tweeted this as a response to a user's suggestion that Starfield as well as other Bethesda games might be a possibility for being released on PS5 release:

Skyrim will receive the latest treatment

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will soon be celebrating its 10th anniversary. In order to mark the occasion, Bethesda will release an anniversary version of the game on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S but you'll also be able to download free updates for the next generation on Xbox One, PS5 along with Xbox Series X|S in the event that you have the special Edition for the game.

In the anniversary edition will be a new fishing mini-games and more than 500 Creation Club elements that offer "pre-existing and new quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons, spells and more".

The primary benefit to those who own the latest consoles is that the new version of Skyrim will make use of their power, but Bethesda has yet to announce the details of the enhancements. It's like the end of the road for Skyrim. Now that it's being released to the most recent consoles, it will not be available elsewhere (we believe) and so what's next? The Elder Scrolls 6? Perhaps having Skyrim improved to work with PS5 as well as Xbox Series X might give us a glimpse of the way Tamriel will look like on the newest consoles.

"Very different" to Avowed Coming Exclusive Xbox game Avowed has been compared in The Elder Scrolls series in terms of its design, however Phil Spencer has said there are "distinct differences" between the games.

On the recent IGN podcast to confirm if Avowed could play in an Elder Scrolls role for Xbox considering that the fact that Elder Scrolls 6 is quite still a ways off, Spencer responded, "I think that the games are different, so I might have a hard time trying to claim that this is our version with the knowledge of what Obsidian Studio director Feargus Urquhart] and his team will accomplish. However, when I think about the lineup we have and then think about the more fundamental fantasy RPG I believe that Avowed will make an incredible entry in that setting."

The game will be Fable 4 first. During an interview on the IGN Podcast, Phil Spencer intimated that we'll likely take on the next Fable game before playing Elder Scrolls 6. When asked about the nature in Fable, Spencer said, "Fable's always been a little more light-hearted and a little more British, I think I could say, and I think Playground will keep it there," saying, "Elder Scrolls 6 is further out, and when that comes out I think it's going to be incredible."

It's still in the beginning stages, we could be waiting for a long time before we are able to experience Elder Scrolls 6, as Bethesda Games Studios director, Todd Howard, has confirmed that the next chapter of the open-world fantasy epic is in the beginning phases of its development.

Howard said to in the Telegraph the Telegraph that "It's best to imagine The Elder Scrolls 6 as still in a design phase ]... however we're looking at the technology: "Is it capable of handling the tasks we'd like to accomplish in the game? Each game will come with new technology suites, and which means that Elder Scrolls 6 will have several additions the Creation Engine 2 that that game will require."

If we accept Howard as an honest assessment It's highly unlikely we'll be seeing Elder Scrolls 6 any time very soon, given that the game is currently in its stage of conceptualization and the team from Bethesda Game Studios still getting to know the New Creation Engine 2.

E3 2021 was a no-show. E3 2021 was an absolute fun event, with the Microsoft/Xbox event making it one of the conference's best moments.

Unfortunately, it didn't provide any information on The Elder Scrolls 6, apart from the fact it was in development. Bethesda's primary focus in the program was showing in-engine footage of the intriguing Starfield. We'll need to wait longer before we get more information on this significant franchise.

A new game called Elder Scrolls 6 may not be available on PS5 Xbox director Phil Spencer has confirmed that the future Bethesda games will only be available on "platforms where Game Pass exists" which means PS5 players won't be able to play.

At the "Bethesda Joins Xbox" roundtable on March 11th Spencer spoke about speculation over whether the acquisition could result in the future Bethesda games, like Starfield as well as The Elder Scrolls 6, becoming Xbox exclusives after Microsoft's purchase from ZeniMax Media.

"If you're an Xbox customer, the thing I want you to know is that this is about delivering great exclusive games for you that ship on platforms where Game Pass exists," Spencer explained. "That's our aim, and that's the reason we're doing this. That's the foundation of the partnership we're creating.

However, games with contractual obligations prior to the acquisition, for example Deathloop will continue to be available on PS5 as games currently available across other platforms be supported.

"Obviously I can't sit here and say every Bethesda game is exclusive, because we know that's not true," Spencer declared. "There are contractual obligations that we're going to see through, as we always do in every one of these instances. We have games that exist on other platforms, and we're gonna go support those games on the platforms they're on. There are communities of players and we love those communities and we'll continue to invest in them. And even in the future, there might be things that have contractual things or legacy on different platforms that we'll go do."

While it's worth noting it's possible that The Elder Scrolls 6 may not be included under the Xbox Game Pass exclusivity umbrella in the event that Sony is already securing the game for its platform, it's quite possible that a major hit like this could be exclusive to Xbox and PC at some point at least, since no platforms have been announced for either. It's the same with Starfield that's now confirmed as an exclusive Xbox game.

The footage leaked online is likely to be fake. A video that claims to be an early test of The Elder Scrolls 6 has been released online, however its authenticity is questioned. The video was uploaded on Reddit (via GamesRadar) , the video is very short (a total of just about 10 seconds) and gives only an in-person view of a person running across grass and over the rocks.

There's not much evidence to suggest that the footage is authentic item, and there's very little to this footage's complete stop even if it's authentic. We're guessing that, however much we'd like to have the chance to see The Elder Scrolls 6 in motion, the most secure option is to take it with the grain of salt and conclude that it's not real.

The game is an Xbox Game Pass day one title according Todd Howard Todd Howard, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will gain the access for The Elder Scrolls 6 from day one of their membership .

The new Indiana Jones game won't delay Elder Scrolls 6 development Bethesda has recently announced it's collaborating with MachineGames on a brand-new Indiana Jones game, with Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard playing an executive producer position for the game.

However, those who are worried about whether this work will affect The Elder Scrolls 6, where he's also working, don't worry.

In response to a tweet regarding Todd Howard's involvement with multiple projects Bethesda's Pete Hines said "Todd is currently EP on numerous BGS and other projects including The Fallout TV show. Howard's main goal is to direct the forthcoming Starfield as well as TES6 games and games, which aren't affected due to the current news."

Could it be Hammerfell? 2021 is expected to become a more exciting year Elder Scrolls 6 news than 2020, after The Elder Scrolls' official Elder Scrolls account tweeted something which could be a teaser for The Elder Scrolls 6. The tweet is titled "Transcribe your past, and chart the future. We wish you a happy new year!", includes a image of a map that has three lights.

The lights are located in various areas of Tamriel and include one placed on top of the map, one on Skyrim and a third, more interestingly located in an unmapped region beneath Skyrim: Hammerfell. There has been long-standing speculation there's a possibility The Elder Scrolls 6 will be set in Hammerfell where the Redguard However, it's not been confirmed at this point. Naturally, a lot of fans take this picture as an indication that the stories regarding the setting are real.

Another interesting detail which was reported by PCGamer The date that appears on the map 4E 182. This actually occurs one year before that of Skyrim in the 4E era and indicates at the possibility that both games of the series may be closely related.

It's impossible to know that this information is correct or even relates with Elder Scrolls 6 (and not Elder Scrolls Online) until the official confirmation comes from Bethesda however, considering the term "map the future" and the fact that Hammerfell in the map shown in the image is still to be explored and mapped and explored, this certainly is an extremely influential tweet.

Even PlayStation isn't certain about The Elder Scrolls' PS5 future. As we reported, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan stated that he's uncertain about whether The Elder Scrolls 6 will be released on PS5 in the wake of Microsoft's purchase of the publishing company's parent ZeniMax.

A conversation by Russian magazine TASS (via GamesRadar) in November of 2020, Ryan stated that it's not certain if The Elder Scrolls 6 will make its way to PlayStation or if it's the case that it will be a Microsoft exclusive.

"That's a decision that is out of our hands," Ryan stated. "We'll watch and watch what happens. I'm eager to learn more about this."

Ryan added Ryan also explained that Sony is different from Microsoft in the process of studio acquisitions.

"We just take a different approach," Ryan stated. "Our focus is to concentrate on a steady, slow and constant organic development of our studios carefully augmented by acquisitions. We are awestruck by the actions taken by our competitors because they are reasonable and rational. We're also happy and confident, as we've got the best lineup of launch products than we've had in the launch of any console."

It seems, therefore that the ball's at Microsoft's feet regarding The Elder Scrolls 6, the game's launch. In the simplest sense, Todd Howard has said in an interview with that he found it "hard to imagine" a game such as The Elder Scrolls 6 not being available on various platforms. But he also made clear that when he spoke, such types of decisions were not decided upon yet.

It is expected that Elder Scrolls 6 will use an entirely new engine Bethesda has confirmed that it will be redesigning its current engine exclusively to work with Elder Scrolls 6.

Imagine the scenario if Elder Scrolls 6 looked and looked and ran just as Skyrim. This thought is best kept in the gates of Oblivion.

According to GamesRadar the engine is named the same, however it will feature new renderings, lighting, animations (hallelujah) as well as a photogrammetry and landscape system.

Todd Howard spoke about the engine shortly after an announcement about the Microsoft merger Todd Howard spoke about the engine after the announcement of the Microsoft merger, saying "it's led to our largest engine overhaul since Oblivion, with all new technologies powering our first new IP in 25 years, Starfield, as well as The Elder Scrolls 6."

At the Develop: Brighton conference, Howard offered more details about the revamped Creation Engine in a statement that it's "a significant overhaul," noting that "It's been longer than we'd have preferred however it's going to be the basis for everything we're working on using Starfield as well as Elder Scrolls 6. When players are able to see the outcomes, they'll be as content as we are over the game's visuals and how we will create the games we've created."

The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

The Elder Scrolls 6 will be released following Starfield Starfield will be Bethesda's most anticipated release for November 2022. However, we will not be able access The Elder Scrolls 6 until after the release date.

Todd Howard explained in 2019 that Bethesda is "still hard at work" with the two games: The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield. Howard also said that "Starfield is playable, Elder Scrolls VI not in that way yet."

The primary focus for Bethesda will be Starfield. The company's interview to Bethesda Game Studios, executive producer Tom Howard spoke to IGN and advised "I think everyone should be very patient."

"The gap in between [Elder Scrolls games] is going to be long, It already is," Howard continued. Howard.

Job listings A few job postings that are posted by Bethesda Game Studios have led to speculation that the work on Starfield may be coming to an end as well. The Elder Scrolls 6 could be in full production very soon. As of the 23rd of October 2020, it appears that the job still has applications.

It was first discovered by an Reddit user, the job description for Gameplay Developers at the studio is looking for "talented programmers to join our team that is pushing the bleeding-edge of RPG development for the PC and consoles". Within the company you'll "Collaborate on the implementation of new gameplay features: player and characters' behaviors, combat and powers mechanics, user interface, etc."

There's not a any mentions of The Elder Scrolls in this list, it appears to be a call for volunteers for something that's in its initial stage, rather than something that's been in development for some time like Starfield.

In addition to fueling this fire is an announcement for an Editor for Video on the Bethesda website that many have taken as a sign on Starfield is at its final stage and that the company is soon planning to make videos to promote their products, including trailers.

Skyrim Grandma We know that Skyrim Grandma who is called Shirley Curry, will be arriving in The Elder Scrolls 6 as an NPC. It appears Shirley Curry will be a part of The Elder Scrolls V, her game with her name, due to a mod. The mod, which is due to launch in the beginning of this year will create Shirley the follower of Skyrim with unique dialogue and interactions. The idea is that in the future, Shirley will have her own adventure. It will also feature Shirley's voice, as she worked with the developers for the mod. It's possible to take a peek at the mod in the teaser trailer. The developers hope to release an Xbox release of both the original and special versions of Skyrim.

Redfall trademark dispute has been resolved. Redfall trademark issue has been settled and the ZeniMax Media dispute with Bookbreeze concerning their trademark Redfall has been settled. Bethesda's parent company tried to mark the word "Redfall" in the year 2018, leading fans to believe The Elder Scrolls 6 could finally be a real thing. Redfall is an alias of a science-fiction series published by Bookbreeze therefore the claim was inevitably contested in February of 2019.

But, we are aware that Bethesda was seeking the trademark, but not to use it for Elder Scrolls 6 purposes, rather, as the name for Arkane Studio's new team shooter with a vampire theme.

The resolution has been reported (via Gamasutra) as amicable, as well as "mutually beneficial" for both parties. However, it remains secret.

The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

The technology of photogrammetry will be utilized in that panel celebrating 25 years that shattered the E3 expectations of a lot of, Bethesda did at the minimum give the fans the chance to see some of the tech that will be utilized to develop The Elder Scrolls 6. We were able to see the process of using photogrammetry that involves scanning real-world objects and scenes to incorporate them into game play in precise 3D. This technology will be making its debut in Starfield before the most recent version is utilized in Elder Scrolls.

Elder Scrolls 6 goes official Bethesda is an active studio. Not only are they developing Starfield as well, but it's also developing games for Elder Scrolls Online and it's taking on the huge dedication to Fallout 76. This is just one of its primary RPG franchises. There's still many other things going on with mobile games Prey, Dishonored, and Dishonored among other titles.

Through Todd Howard, we know Bethesda is currently working on two massive new titles at the same time, even though their development are not in sync.

After returning to Skyrim after a short absence, Howard compared it to visiting an old buddy from school. He added that his absence allowed him to visit Skyrim as a player in the very first instance.

For us, this is the ideal time to begin applying this fresh approach to the next installment of the franchise.

At the very minimum, we're able to say that we know it's not going to be named Elder Scrolls 6. There's likely to be a colon, and a third word to top the title off , if past releases are any indication.

ELDER SCROLLS 6: Where will it be set?

The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

We're willing bet like the previous games in the series, The Elder Scrolls 6 is likely to be set on Tamriel, the world of Tamriel which is the Map of Tamriel is shown above.

The previous games have led players through High Rock, Hammerfell, Morrowind, Cyrodil, and Skyrim. Valenwood, Elsweyr and Black Marsh are the largest areas that remain to explore. But, even though these are the best areas to explore, it's not to suggest that Bethesda will not return to the locations from previous games.

There have been rumors online that have focused on Black Marsh, the home of the world's reptile Argonian race, however there was really any reason to support this speculation. The marshlands that lie in Black Marsh's swampy wetlands and islands be a fascinating geographical variation for the series, but it's one that is open to being compared with Witcher 3. It's likely to be the region in Tamriel that we know very little about and, therefore, Bethesda has plenty of space to think up new ideas.

If we're looking at what is interesting to look, Elsweyr would also be one of the options with its dry plains as well as rough badlands that the Khajit reside in.

It's certainly nice to learn more about the history of either Khajit and the Argonians and each of these wildly diverse settings will have a distinct appeal to those who love them.

It was also reported that there is a substantial speculation that the Elder Scrolls 6 could be set in Valenwood where the Bosmer lives. the Bosmer and it's a region of Tamriel which Bethesda hasn't explored in depth.

The speculation about the possibility that Fallout: Nuka World will take place in this area is based on an internal Bethesda memo that was issued all the time in the year 2014. In the document, Bethesda employees were reportedly warned against using the words Fallout: Nuka World, Elder Scrolls VI or Project Greenheart.

Although initially thought to be fraudulent game, Fallout: Nuka World was actually a huge DLC launch in Fallout 4 which gave slightly more credibility to the idea the idea that Project Greenheart is in fact the codename of the next Elder Scrolls title. The aspect that Greenheart is located in the lush region of Valenwood added to the intriguing.

But, when the short introduction trailer of Elder Scrolls 6 was released at E3 2018, a lot of fans were able to see a shift away from the Valenwood setting, as the scenery depicted in the trailer did not represent Valenwood in any way.

The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

It's difficult to determine from the brief E3 video we have of the game , but since it was shown , the general opinions have begun to shift towards the notion that Elder Scrolls 6 will be set in either Hammerfell or High Rock.

The latest evidence to support the Hammerfell report is a tweet on The official Elder Scrolls Twitter account towards around the time of the 2020 deadline, which states "transcribe the past and map the future" and includes an image of the unmapped Hammerfell region. There's an opportunity that this teaser does not relate directly to Elder Scrolls 6 at all.

A conversation in an interview with Eurogamer, Todd Howard confirmed that the team has decided on a location, but the location isn't revealed as of yet.

The details are, naturally extremely scarce currently. The only information we have is speculations and doesn't constitute the foundation of the actual event.

Naturally, for those who have a knowledge of Tamriel because of Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim and, yes the Elder Scrolls Online, the world of Tamriel is a vast area of various places and settings that the game can be played.

We know one thing we can be certain of; where it ends to be in the future, we will be completing a variety of other side-questions.


The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

Homebuilding One of the features we're pretty sure will be in the game to a certain extent is the building of houses and town building. Skyrim introduced the concept of creating and maintaining a homestead in it's Hearthfire DLC, which Fallout 4 further developed by introducing settlement mechanics, and Elder Scrolls online built upon yet again through the Homestead DLC. This is a great way to get the expansion of these features in the following Elder Scrolls title as it did not feel complete in Fallout.

This would be a feature that could work especially well with the rumored Valenwood setting, especially if it involved the player adjusting to the natural world in the way that the residents of Bosmer are with their city-like treetops. Similar to the way that the player utilized trash and debris to build their own settlement in Fallout and Fallout 3, they could make use of their surroundings to build their own settlement within Elder Scrolls in a nice contrast.

A new story in an interview on Gamespot, Todd Howard said that Bethesda is investigating the ways it tells stories through its games.

Howard said Howard pointed out that Skyrim in addition to Fallout 4 take slightly different ways of telling stories and narratives, with Skyrim being more open to the player's imagination and Fallout with its more rigid approach to guiding players through a narrative

He says that the studio is looking into ways it can "tell a better story in an open world." He added "each of our games we've had successes and failures and if you ask us internally, we have new ideas that we want to explore in the future because we feel like we haven't really cracked it yet the way we think it could be."

Being aware of the distinctions among Skyrim and Fallout's methods of storytelling, as well as the possibility that both have both positives and negatives indicates it is possible that future Elder Scrolls title could strike an equilibrium in giving the player freedom to tell an arc around their character.

It's not difficult to say the fact that The Witcher 3 has had an enormous impact on the kind of game players want from the story and engaging gameplay in an open-world experience.

While we don't at all desire Bethesda to just make copies of a Witcher version (we're not certain it's likely regardless) it puts some pressure on Bethesda in terms of creating high-quality, story telling that is based on the environment and quests.

There is no multiplayer. What we do not expect to see it is multiplayer. Skyrim certainly does not suffer from a deficiency of multiplayer and it would not be a good idea in the grand scheme of things. sense to include multiplayer online in the context of Elder Scrolls Online still rolling through.

The Elder Scrolls 6 trailer, information and speculation

Virtual reality isn't an absolute certainty, however the fact that Bethesda launched a complete VR game experience in Skyrim isn't impossible to imagine it happening in the future, if not right away.

New graphics and less bugs Skyrim's remastered version Skyrim demonstrated how far Skyrim has improved visually since the game's initial release, and we can expect the next game that follows Skyrim to be at least of the same quality, if not more in relation to the distance from which the game has come.

We are aware that the brand new engine will be utilized for Bethesda's games an important boost in their delivery.

Fluid combat taking advantage of the new consoles We all know and love the cartoons from Oblivion, Skyrim and Fallout however, to see these in an Xbox Series X or PS5 or on high-end PCs is almost embarrassing. We anticipate a more fluid experience in combat and, given the power these consoles claim as being, to provide a stunningly immersive open world to explore.

Replayability during Interview with IGN Howard provided a brief update on what players are likely to get of the title.

He stated: "I think when they eventually see the game and what we have in mind, they'll understand the gap more in terms of technology and what we want it to do... We're eight years post-Skyrim. It lets us know going into Elder Scrolls 6 that this is a game we need to design for people to play for a decade at least."

We know the Elder Scrolls 6 is being designed with longevity in mind. It is true that games such as Skyrim and Oblivion are still being played today purely through players who create mods or simply aren't able to get enough.

In the event that this is the case, there will be more emphasis on replayability , with branches and the implications that come from certain choices remains to be seen, however that could certainly be one way for keeping the sport fresh during overtime.
