When can we expect the Elder Scrolls 6 to release?

Fans are still eagerly awaiting a release date for the forthcoming Elder Scrolls 6 game. The good news is we know it’s coming, the bad news, it’s going to be a little while yet.

A release date is so far off that any speculation as to when it is will be little more than guessing. What we can say with a high degree of certainty is that we won’t see the Elder Scrolls 6 any time before 2022.

Starfield comes first

That is because Bethesda’s other big RPG project Starfield will be coming first. “Starfield is a game we’ve spent years thinking about and working on, something we feel uniquely positioned to pull off, and we’re incredibly excited about,” Bethesda’s Todd Howard said at E3 2018.

The sci-fi themed game is clearly an IP Bethesda feel passionately about and, for the moment, have prioritized its development. With Starfield expected to release any time in 2020 or 2021, it’s no wonder the sixth installment of the Elder Scrolls series is still so far away.

Official announcement

We do however have an official teaser trailer was released for the eventual successor to Skyrim. Shared at E3 2018, it came with the caption: “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.”

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

While Starfield is naturally the short-term focus of Bethesda, Howard is clearly aware that the Elder Scrolls series is their most popular title. “We’re also building toward the game after that and it’s the one you keep asking about,” Howard said, while clearly alluding to TES6.

It has already been several years since Skyrim was released, and while there may be some impatient fans out there, Bethesda are banking on this wait only making the game even more wanted when its release finally comes around.

“The gap in between [Elder Scrolls games] is going to be long, It already is,” Howard said in an interview with IGN. “On one hand, I think it’s good to miss things. I think that makes people come to it with really, really fresh eyes, and I think when they eventually, eventually, see the game and what we have in mind, they’ll understand the gap more in terms of technology and what we want it to do.”

TES history

With Skyrim somewhat shockingly being released all the way back in 2011 (how time flies), this is already the longest fans have had to wait for a new Elder scrolls game. By the time it does release we’re looking at a minimum of 12 year gap, with a 13 or 14 year wait more likely.

Here are the release years of the previous five Elder Scrolls titles:

  • The Elder Scrolls: Arena – 1994
  • The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall – 1996
  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind – 2002
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion – 2006
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – 2011

It looks like The Elder Scrolls VI game will eclipse the current longest wait of 6 years between Daggerfall and Morrowind. The question is will the currently untitled sixth game be worth the wait? That might be a question that, at least in the eyes of those who have played the previous games, doesn’t need answering.

Format & rules

This is a double-elimination 4v4 competition using a Variant format, meaning that the maps, modes, and rules are mostly from the official competitive ruleset for when Ghosts was the main CoD game being played.

In the 2014 season, the three main modes were Domination, Search and Destroy, and Blitz, each with their own set of maps. Here are the map-mode sets that are being used in this event:
