Todd Howard just wanted to assure fans that, yes, Bethesda was working on The Elder Scrolls 6.
Bruce Nesmith, a former design director at Bethesda, says the idea of 'You do it to get better at it' is "absolutely going to continue."
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has previously said that the game is unlikely to launch for at least another five years.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has once again suggested that the decision has yet to be made on whether The Elder Scrolls 6 will be exclusive to Xbox.
The highly anticipated fantasy RPG is the next major project Bethesda Game Studios will focus on after Starfield's launch.
The Federal Trade Commission's trial against Microsoft and its acquisition of Activision Blizzard revealed some interesting things.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer also says it's currently "difficult" for Microsoft to "nail down exactly what platforms" the open world RPG will launch for.
"If I do the math, I'm not getting any younger. How long do people play Elder Scrolls? That may be the last one I do. I don't know."
Bethesda Game Studios could be looking at multiplayer for its upcoming sci-fi RPG, or even The Elder Scrolls 6, in the long term.
Sony argues that this fact makes Microsoft's promises to keep Call of Duty multiplatform irrelevant.
Microsoft previously said it had three Xbox and PC-exclusive ZeniMax titles in the pipeline, but The Elder Scrolls 6 might not be in that group.
Howard says Bethesda is aware that people will be playing The Elder Scrolls 6 for a long time, and that has impacted how the studio approaches development.
BGS' Todd Howard says that the team will be working on Fallout 5 once Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 have been done with.
According to a new leak, The Elder Scrolls 6 is now in the early stages of full development, with some gameplay details having emerged.
With Bethesda Game Studios currently focused on Starfield, it seems like work on The Elder Scrolls 6 is still moving at a gradual pace.
"In order to be on Xbox, I want us to be able to bring the full complete package of what we have," says Xbox boss Phil Spencer.
Todd Howard says single player experiences are a core part of the studio's DNA, but they could still utilize multiplayer and social ideas in games in the future.
Though the vast majority of development work is currently being done on Starfield, "everybody works on everything," says Howard.
You can make arguments for either side, but one makes more sense than the other.
Howard is an executive producer on the recently announced MachineGames title.
