Pete Hines Mentions the Elder Scrolls VI Release Date

There is some quite unfortunate news for fans of the Elder Scrolls series. Yesterday, Pete Hines, the Vice-President of public relations and marketing at Bethesda, responded to a tweet regarding more information on The Elder Scrolls VI. His tweet stated, “It’s after Starfield, which you pretty much know nothing about. So if you’re coming at me for details now and not years from now, I’m failing to properly manage your expectations”. This means that Starfield (Bethesda’s upcoming RPG) is their primary focus, and The Elder Scrolls VI is on the backburner for the time being.

Elder Scrolls Release

The only official announcement for The Elder Scrolls VI was the trailer, which was released on June 10th, 2018. Many fans were probably hoping to see a release date soon, but it seems like we will be waiting for Starfield to release in the meantime. The amount of time and effort put into these open-world RPG games are always abundant, so I had a feeling that they would be spacing their games out. However, it is a little disappointing having to wait so long between games. After all, Bethesda released The Elder Scrolls V in 2011. 

What are your thoughts? Are you disappointed to hear that Bethesda won’t release The Elder Scrolls VI any time soon, or are you optimistic that Starfield may be a good distraction in the meantime? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to Geeks + Gamers for more gaming content!

  1. Is the video game market so uncertain now that Bethesda is afraid to commit to their most popular franchise? Or is this a product of gamers moving to the MMO-model? I wish I understood why they seem to have abandoned the Elder Scrolls after experiencing nothing but success with it. Fortunately for us, there are modders willing to do the work that Bethesda now refuses. Skywind/Skyblivion, you’re our only hope!

  2. Elder Scrolls VI should have been the next game out instead of Fallout 76. I can sort of understand if they’re trying to mimic Rockstar with their literal years between Red Dead games, but Rockstar actually took the time to develop REALLY good games. Bethesda seems to have accomplished not only dropping the ball but punting it away from them with their customers’ private info being leaked. It almost feels like they’re trying to win a failure contest.

  3. Years☹️ Isn’t 9 years enough time? Well I hope we see a Skyrim next gen upgrade in the mean time. I’ve been playing Skyrim since release back in 2011 and it’s not a perfect game but I still go back to it It’s my go to game that I can kill an hour or two with every so often. But elder scrolls 6 still needs to hurry up

  4. Elder Scrolls is old news. Todd Howard screwed the franchise into the ground. I’m much more excited for “Once Lost Games” (founded by creators from the old era of Elder Scrolls) release.

  5. I hope Starfield is a good game, but I’m not expecting a lot.. I love single player RPG’s.. have for a long, long time. But so many games coming out recently just seem like clones of each other.. I had hopes for the Outer Worlds, but just couldn’t get into it.. so currently I’m playing old games..

    Maybe Starfield, maybe the Elders Scrolls VI.. maybe Halo Infinite.. It’d be nice to have a new game that isn’t a disappointment.
