Elder Scrolls 6 is presently in development, and fans will have to wait a bit longer for its release. Bethesda Game Studios is famous for taking its time to create high-quality experiences. Gamers all across the world have been waiting for any news regarding the Elder Scrolls 6 release date and setting.
Here’s all we know about Elder Scrolls 6 so far.
Elder Scrolls 6 official announcement
During Bethesda’s E3 2018, a 37-second teaser trailer for Elder Scrolls 6 was released. The brief clip showed an area with mountains and coastline, as well as the Elder Scrolls 6 logo,
Elder Scrolls 6 release date
The release date of Elder Scrolls 6 is one of the most frequently asked questions. Unfortunately, Bethesda Game Studios has been silent on the topic. Todd Howard, the game’s director, claimed during an interview,
“Elder Scrolls 6 is still in the early stages of development and will release after the studio’s next project, Starfield.”
Xbox CEO Phil Spencer stated,
“Elder Scrolls 6 won’t be released until Fable 4.”
As of yet, no official Elder Scrolls 6 release date has been revealed. With all the hype currently surrounding Starfield, we don’t expect Bethesda to transfer all that attention to a different game.
Elder Scrolls 6 setting and story
While the teaser trailer showed off the Elder Scrolls 6 environment, the game could take place in Hammerfell or High Rock. According to Bethesda Game Studios, the game will take place in a “brand new, next-generation” environment, indicating that it will be set in a different location than previous Elder Scrolls titles.
The rumor concerning Hammerfell’s setting began from the official Elder Scrolls Twitter account on December 31, 2020. The tweet displayed the unmapped Hammerfell location, but no final detail has been released. In addition, the tweet asks people to “transcribe the past and map the future.”

Elder Scrolls 6 gameplay and features
Details about Elder Scrolls 6’s gameplay and features are still uncertain. Fans can expect amazing adventures, character customization, a massive open-world landscape, and an overall realistic role-playing experience built on the popularity of its predecessors. Combat and fighting gameplay are likely to be included in the game.
Elder Scrolls 6 game engine
For Elder Scrolls 6, Bethesda Game Studios is using a new engine. Todd Howard said in 2021,
“The vast majority of our development work is on Starfield right now, but everybody works on everything, so the projects kind of intertwine.”
He further added,
“It’s good to think of The Elder Scrolls 6 as still in the design [phase], but we’re checking the tech: ‘Is this going to handle the things we want to do in that game. Every game will have some new suites of technology; hence Elder Scrolls 6 will have some Creation Engine 2 upgrades that the game will require.”
When compared to its predecessor, the new Elder Scrolls 6 engine is supposed to offer improved graphics, dynamics, and an overall improved gameplay experience.
Elder Scrolls 6 platforms
Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Media was acquired by Microsoft in 2020. This acquisition created concerns about Elder Scrolls 6’s exclusivity. While Bethesda has previously released games on numerous platforms, including PlayStation, it is unclear if Microsoft will make the upcoming Elder Scrolls game exclusive to the Xbox Series X/S and PC, or if it will be open on other platforms as well.
While the official Elder Scrolls 6 release is widely anticipated, there isn’t much solid proof available just yet. The game appears to be in the early phases of development, and the studio’s current focus is on its upcoming space RPG, Starfield, which is planned to release on September 6, 2023. Until then, Elder Scrolls 6 fans will have to wait.
