Bethesda hopefully has something really exciting up its sleeve for E3 2019 – but don’t get your hopes up too high, because it’s not going to be anything about The Elder Scrolls 6.
During the a talk at PAX East 2019 [via IGN], Bethesda games director Todd Howard confessed that we’re not going to be seeing either The Elder Scrolls 6, or the highly-anticipated Starfield either.
Howard said: “Before everyone asks, please be patient. It’s going to be a long time. It’s not something we’re going to be talking about at E3, either of those games, this year. Patience, please.”
The confession makes it ever-more-likely that both of these games won’t make it to release before the end of the current generation of consoles.
Rumour suggests that we’re likely to see the release of both the PlayStation 5 and the next Xboxes (yes, plural) in 2020. If Bethesda isn’t ready to show anything from The Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield at E3 2019, it’s seeming VERY unlikely they’ll be coming out before the next gen consoles hit the shelves.
Take your time, Bethesda. We don’t want another Fallout 76 on our hands…
Next to nothing is known about the next addition to The Elder Scrolls franchise, but it’s being speculated that the next title will be called “Redfall.”
The rumour initially started up back in 2018, when a leaked a trademark application from the company behind Bethesda, ZeniMax Media Inc. used the name.
It was described as “computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles.”
Earlier this year a trademark dispute between Bethesda and science-fiction author Jay Falconer came to light, and it’s all down to the name that Bethesda is apparently using – Redfall.
Falconer has authored two books in his Redfall series, and it’s apparently the name that’s been earmarked for the next Elder Scrolls.
Well, we definitely won’t be finding out the title anytime soon…
