The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced around 3 years ago. Despite that, the game still hasn’t gone past the design phase. This news is quite heartbreaking for those people who were eagerly waiting for the game. According to Todd Howard, the game is still in its design phase and it will be powered by the Creation Engine 2. It has also been built for Bethesda’s next big RPG, Starfield.

Creation Engine 2 is like a new tech base and is built for both games. However, most of their development work is on Starfield right now but everybody is working on everything so the project gets intertwined. The entire team is ensuring that the engine can do every single thing the team has in mind for The Elder Scrolls 6.

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 game is going to require.”

No official word since 2018

The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced back in 2018, and since then, very little has been said about the game. It was announced alongside Starfield, which already has a release date. There will be some time before we see any official update on The Elder Scrolls 6. All we have is a cinematic trailer and nothing else. Not even a single word about the game. According to Pete Hines, the early announcement was made to show that Bethesda didn’t abandon single-player games.

Additionally, Bethesda is also working on the Indiana Jones title from Wolfenstein developer. Speaking with the Telegraph, Howard revealed that he has always liked the Indiana Jones property but never imaged that he would make the game.

I think I originally pitched  [to George] Lucas in 2009 and I’ve been trying to find a way to make that [since], And I think the work (MachineGames) have done, they’re just phenomenal developers and storytellers. And when I started talking to them about it, it was a good fit. And we got to the opportunity to talk to Lucas and Disney about it and they were super excited.

The Elder Scrolls 6 does not have any confirmed release date yet.
