Expecting To Hear About Fallout 5 And The Elder Scrolls 6? Not Happening Anytime Soon
You’ll probably get it this time, if the half a million times it was said before didn’t convince you.
One thing is for sure, we are years away from the launch of The Elder Scrolls 6 (and also Fallout 5, but that one is a given, since Fallout 4 just released last year). While both series are extremely popular, with millions of players and fans worldwide, pestering Bethesda about them is not likely to make new games in the series release any sooner than they will otherwise.
But hey, given that a new Elder Scrolls game, at least, has been acknowledged by Bethesda, we can, maybe, expect to hear a bit more about what the new game will be like, right? Like maybe we get some information about where it will be set, or the general premise of the plot? Unfortunately, even that is unlikely to happen. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Pete Hines confirmed that Bethesda does not like to discuss games unless they are officially announced- and given that Bethesda don’t announce games until they have an almost complete game to show, and that they like shorter marketing campaigns to longer ones, we’re not likely to get an official Elder Scrolls 6 or Fallout 5 acknowledgement from Bethesda any time soon. In turn, that means we won’t hear anything about either game for a good while, either.
Until then, I suppose, it’s just best to keep speculating about what these games might or might not be like. That, or you can just play Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition to pass the time till the next entries in these franchises release, I suppose.
