These last two years have been somewhat silence for Bethesda and its fans, all we have heard from the developers is the continuous streak of Skyrim releases, ESO content and of course the introduction of DLC in Fallout 76 and transforming it completely. Although these developments were interesting and even obsessing, the fans want the real deal here.
It’s been almost two years since the trailer of Elder Scroll 6 was revealed at E3 2018, we have heard absolutely nothing about the title except for the fact that it’s still years away from the gaming arena.
Starfield Before Elder Scroll 6
While the fans are excited to hear any info about Elder Scroll 6, the vice president of Bethesda, Pete Hines gave away a not-so-helpful piece of information that it will be released after Starfield. Now Starfield is yet another Bermuda triangle that we know nothing about except that it’s a Sci-Fi RPG releasing on both next-generation consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X. That’s all we know about this mysterious title, no release date, no gameplay information nothing to make a reasonable guess about when we can get our hands on the Elder Scroll 6.
With that being, I fail to understand the purpose of giving a peak and revealing the title when it not due for years. Bethesda should have realized that once they drop a trailer all that fans will talk about is the release date of the title. On top of that, the very fact that Bethesda isn’t even talking about Elder Scroll 6 even after 2 years of its trailer means the game is not to be expected any sooner than 2023 or 2024. Almost 12-13 years after the release of its previous part, Skyrim. Although it’s not really a piece of cake to develop a game, such a big gap is not quite reasonable either.
Since Pete Hines pointed out that Starfield is expected before Elder Scroll 6, the fans were hoping that the developers would give an idea of what the game encompasses but it’s all dark there too fellas. With Starfield, Bethesda went completely out of the box, dived in a new universe of IP. Fans can do nothing but speculate the mysteries the title holds.
Well, no matter how eager or impatient the fans are there’s nothing yet concrete about the two big titles. The queries will keep on increasing until Bethesda comes up with some information presumably by 2021 I hope. Until then, consider the game nonexistent, it’s more comforting. Meanwhile, you can hop into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and go on new adventures. Find a wife, go kill a dragon, and whatnot.
