Head of Bethesda, Todd Howard has confirmed that the company is working on The Elder Scrolls VI to IGN but that it is a “very long way off”.
In addition, the developer is working on at least two other projects and will continue to bring DLC to Fallout 4.
“Elder Scrolls 6 is kind of like the elephant in the room, always, when we talk about anything,” Howard explained, “and you know, I think it’s good in these moments to tell our fans yes, of course we are [working on it] – it’s something we love – but it is… you know, I have to be careful what I say, it’s a very long way off.”
“I don’t want to say yet, but people should know by now that the gap between hearing about it and it coming out, I like that to be really short. They’re all a ways off, and we’ll talk about it when we talk about it.”
It should be noted that there was only a 5-month wait between Fallout 4’s E3 2015 announcement and the game’s release on 10 November 2015.
In the mean-time, Bethesda will release Skyrim: Remastered for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 28 October.
