Bethesda chief Todd Howard has said that he wishes The Elder Scrolls 6 would be arriving sooner. Don’t we all Todd, don’t we all?
The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced over four years ago in June 2018. Some say that the next instalment of Bethesda’s popular RPG series was announced too soon. We couldn’t agree more, as the launch of The Elder Scrolls 6 could still be years away.
The Elder Scrolls 6 is in production, apparently
Back in June 2022, a Bethesda job listing all but confirmed that The Elder Scrolls 6 is in pre-production. A LinkedIn profile of a Bethesda employee read that TES6 is: “currently in full production on Starfield, its first new universe in 25 years, and pre-production on the highly-anticipated The Elder Scrolls VI.”
There’s no telling when The Elder Scrolls 6 will be arriving. However, it seems that Todd Howard shares our pain. During an interview with Lex Fridman, Howard said: “I wish it was soon” when on the topic of its release date.

Howard continued: “We want ’em out too. I wish they didn’t take as long as they did, but they do! If I could go back in time, it would never have been my plan to wait as long as it’s taken for it [The Elder Scrolls 6].”
However, until The Elder Scrolls 6 arrives, it’s not like Bethesda won’t have enough content to keep us busy. In 2023 alone, we will be treated to the vampiric multiplayer horror game Red Fall, from the Dishonored and Deathloop developers, Arkane.
Bethesda will keep us busy for years, hopefully
Furthermore, we also have the highly anticipated arrival of sci-fi RPG Starfield from the same developers that not only brought us The Elder Scrolls, but also the Fallout series. Speaking of Fallout, Bethesda has confirmed the existence of Fallout 5. Happy days!
When The Elder Scrolls 6 does finally arrive, Todd Howard hopes that much like Skyrim, the latest instalment of The Elder Scrolls will keep us entertained for at least a decade.
