While The Elder Scrolls VI is in active development, you won't get to play it for quite some time. Here's everything we know about the follow-up to Skyrim.

At the end of its E3 2018 press conference, Bethesda played not one but two tantalizing teaser trailers. The first was for Starfield, a science-fiction epic that marks Bethesda’s first new franchise in 25 years. The teaser was vague, showing space, a planet, and an odd-looking object floating around that could be a satellite, ship, or perhaps even a space station. The second teaser trailer was for the game everyone knew was eventually coming: The Elder Scrolls VI.

Further reading Release date This is the question every fan wants answered. Unfortunately, you certainly won’t be able to play it any time soon, which is unfortunate given it’s been 10 years since the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While no one at Bethesda has given a release window, we know that The Elder Scrolls VI isn’t too far along in development. At E3 2018, Bethesda Game Studios executive producer Todd Howard said that the game is currently in pre-production.

During an interview with GameSpot in 2019, Zenimax Online Studios game director Matt Firor said, “You can go back and count the years between Bethesda Game Studios releases, and you’ll get the idea that [The Elder Scrolls VI is] not coming anytime soon.” The smallest gap between Bethesda Game Studios’ major releases has been two years, between The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3. It’s usually at least three years, though.

Platforms Given the fact that we need to wait on another game that has no firm release date to come out before The Elder Scrolls VI even enters full production, there’s no doubt that this is going to be an Xbox Series X generation game for consoles, with PC, of course, being a standard platform for the series. However, there is one new wrench thrown into this discussion, which is the acquisition of Zenimax and, by extension, Bethesda by Microsoft in 2020.

That leaves us with High Rock, Hammerfell, Valenwood, Elsweyr, and Black Marsh as potential Elder Scrolls VI locations. Black Marsh, Elsweyr, and Valenwood would appear to have too low of a sea level to fit the trailer. There’s also a relative lack of vast mountain ranges in the teaser. GamesRadar’s Leon Hurley offered an interesting theory of his own, mentioning the sunken island of Yokuda, which is said to have featured “rocky barren hills.” A setting of Yokuda would mean The Elder Scrolls VI is a prequel.
