Peter Hines of Bethesda has confirmed via Twitter that the sixth installment of the saga of The Elder Scrolls, The Elder Scrolls VI, is not developing right now. Yes, they say that the game will come, although it will not appear soon.
In late June, the same Hines was forced to make it clear that the sixth installment of RPG of Bethesda was not developing, and that instead, before two new projects were announced. Still, extracting a literal meaning of his statements and taking into account the complexity, many interpreted that although it was not developing, if it could be in production.
Quoted by MMORPG during last QuakeCon, Pete Hines made clear philosophy of Bethesda and its working methods in terms of development. “Bethesda Game Studios is not a vending machine,” he said. “They’re not a two-button vending machine, where first we press Elder Scrolls and then we press Fallout, and then we press Elder Scrolls and then we press Fallout… They’re an incredibly talented studio of creative people. They’ve now made four games in a row, all of which were named Game of the Year, and they have a right to decide what they’re interested in working on next and which direction they want to go.”
Although the sixth part of the game acclimated of role in fantasy universes that has not yet come to consoles and PC, its previous commercial was a success, and will have a new edition on October 28, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Special Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which will serve to make the wait more bearable during the years that lie ahead.
