Bethesda’s highly anticipated game, The Elder Scrolls VI, was announced at E3 2018. However, fans will have to exercise patience, as the release of the new fantasy RPG is still “five-plus years away,” according to Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Gaming division.

The timeframe for the game’s release was revealed during the second day of the hearing, in which the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is seeking to prevent Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

During the hearing, Phil Spencer addressed questions from an FTC lawyer regarding the platforms on which The Elder Scrolls VI will be released. He acknowledged that there has been some ambiguity regarding the game’s platforms due to its distant release timeline.

Detailed Information on The Elder Scrolls VI Still Years Away

Spencer stated, “It’s difficult for us right now to nail down exactly what platforms that game will launch on… It’s so far out, it’s hard to understand what the platforms will even be at this point.”

He further emphasized that the same development team working on Starfield, set to release in September, is also involved in the development of The Elder Scrolls VI, implying a timeline of “five-plus years away” for its release.

The revelation of The Elder Scrolls VI’s distant release date shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who have been following Bethesda’s updates.

In 2020, Pete Hines, the senior vice president of marketing and communications at Bethesda, made it clear that substantial information about the game wouldn’t be available for a few more years.

He emphasized that The Elder Scrolls VI would come after Starfield, another highly anticipated title that has been shrouded in mystery. Hines acknowledged that managing expectations was crucial and stated that detailed information would not be shared until the appropriate time.

Based on Phil Spencer’s recent comments, it’s possible that The Elder Scrolls VI might not be released on the current generation of consoles. Additionally, Todd Howard, the creative director at Bethesda Game Studios, mentioned last week that the game may be the last of his career, adding an intriguing element to the anticipation surrounding the title.
