E3 2018: Bethesda Reveals Elder Scrolls VI And It’s All We Need


After an amazing E3 2018 press conference, Bethesda cheekily finished with what could be the biggest teaser trailer of the year. The Elder Scrolls VI is real, and very much in development.

Fans of The Elder Scrolls franchise have been blessed in recent years with several new ways to explore Tamriel being created, such as The Elder Scrolls Online, The Elder Scrolls Legends trading card game, and the newly announced The Elder Scrolls Blades. Over the past seven years, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has also launched on numerous platforms including Tamagotchis and train station advert screens. Okay, so maybe not those two but Skyrim is basically now available on every platform that you can play a decent game on.

In the 36 second The Elder Scrolls VI teaser that Bethesda revealed (which felt like it only went for about six second), we see a harsh rocky terrain against coastal waters. Fans of Tamriel have suggested the location is most likely High Rock or Hammerfell, two large zones in the south west coast corner of Tamriel, both bordering Skyrim.

Watch the official The Elder Scrolls VI teaser trailer below:

 

Currently in pre-production at Bethesda Game Studios, the acclaimed developers of Skyrim and Fallout 4. The highly-anticipated next chapter in the iconic The Elder Scrolls series.

While no dates have been announced yet, we don’t expect to be playing The Elder Scrolls VI until at least the end of 2020, and realistically are expecting a launch in 2021. It’s also possible that this game will be a launch title for the next generation of consoles, particularly the PlayStation 5 which dev kits have been available to selected developers for a few months now.

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer also announced at the E3 2018 Xbox Press Conference that they are currently working on new builds for the next generation Xbox as well, so expect to hear a lot more about The Elder Scrolls VI and what consoles it will launch on at E3 2019 and probably E3 2020 too.
