A teaser trailer of Elders Scrolls 6 was first showcased at this year’s E3 event. The game is in works since a very long time. In a recent interview of Gamespot with online studio game director Matt Firor, it was revealed that Elder Scrolls 6 may come on next generation of consoles.
Matt Firor said in interview that if you look back at years between Bethesda Game Studios releases, you will get the idea that the game (Elder Scrolls 6) is not coming out any time soon.
He further said:
I don’t even know what the world is going to be like when it comes out; there will be a different console generation by then, I’m sure. Who knows. But I know we’re free and clear for a long time.
Fallout 76 releases next month. After that, the developers will be more focused on Starfield. Starfield is a single player only game and games like these take a really long time. Bethesda has more staff, more people than ever working on the next projects. It is just that games like Elder Scrolls 6 require a huge amount of time to finish.
Sony is rumored to be working on PlayStation 5. While there are rumors that Microsoft too is venturing ideas to make a next generation console. There is officially no information on models, hardware and release date. There is even no information on whether or not Sony and Microsoft is working on next generation of consoles.
We have only assumptions that since current generation of consoles released in the end of 2013 and a console cycle usually lasts 5-7 years. Next generation of consoles are bound to happen someday.
Till then, we can only expect Elders Scroll 6 to release as a launch title maybe. Its a long shot, but one can wish.
