In an interview with GameSpot, Bethesda marketing boss Pete Hines has asked people not to expect Starfield in 2019 and The Elder Scrolls VI in 2020.
TES 6 will be “big and ambitious” just as you would expect from a new title in the role playing game franchise, so that process will take time.
“[The Elder Scrolls VI] is big and it’s ambitious, but also … the most important thing to underscore is that the timeline between products that you get from BGS is not any different than it has been historically just because we’ve talked about two games after Fallout 76,” Hines said.
“I try really hard to manage people’s expectations. It’s not like ‘Fallout 76 this year, Starfield next year, and then TES6 the year after.’
The timeline isn’t any different. What’s different is just trying to be transparent and say, ‘Don’t freak out, the next thing we’re doing is single-player [in Starfield], [and] we are making TES6.”
With Fallout 76 releasing this November for PS4 and Xbox One, looks legit for Bethesda to be focusing on that first.
Then for the much anticipated two games – whatever they end up being – it’ll be just a matter of patience and most probably next generation only.
