Todd Howard, Bethesda's chief game creator, has confirmed that the next installment of the Elder Scrolls series, Elder Scrolls 6, won’t be revealed anytime soon. We’ll, that’s not good news, is it?
In an interview with IGN’s Geoff Keighley, IGN’s Geoff Keighley
, Howard didn’t downplay the anticipation gamers have for the game, stating:
"[Elder Scrolls 6 is] kind of like the elephant in the room, always, when we talk about anything, and you know, I think it's good in these moments to tell our fans yes, of course we are [working on it] - it's something we love - but it is... you know, I have to be careful what I say, it's a very long way off.”
In fact, we will see two new games from Bethesda before anything on Elder Scrolls 6 is revealed:
“And we actually have two other large projects we’re also doing that are bigger than anything we’ve done,” Howard explained. “People will probably hear about those probably even before Elder Scrolls VI. And that’ll make sense many years from now.
“We think very long term. We’re not a developer that’s going to rush something like this out. When you think about what is the future of that kind of game, we have a pretty good idea of what that’s going to be, and it’s just going to take technology and time we don’t necessarily have right now.”
While it’s good to hear that they won't rush the game, the long wait is going to be downright painful. Some of us might just die...
