Elder Scrolls 6: Release date, trailer, story, location rumours, VR, PS5, Xbox Series X, next gen, consoles & more

The latest Elder Scrolls is shaping up nicely - but will we have to wait until next-gen to see it?



Despite commitments on Starfield and Fallout 76, Bethesda recently reassured fans that Elder Scrolls 6 is very much in development and on its way.

That said, it won’t be releasing anytime soon though.

We hadn’t heard a thing about The Elder Scrolls 6 until Bethesda’s showcase at E3 2019, and considering the wait since the last news we received, the trailer was pretty underwhelming.

Despite the nature of the trailer, a series of rumours about the location of the 6th instalment have been circulating.

We have gathered all news and rumours regarding The Elder Scrolls sequel and will be posting updates with information as we receive it, so bookmark this piece and check back in when you can.

Release date

When asked about Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield at a PAX East Panel in March, Bethesda’s director and executive producer Todd Howard said it is “going to be a long time” before we get to see either of the highly anticipated titles.

EPIC – We still have some time before we can get our hands on the game

Based on this quote, I wouldn’t expect to be playing The Elder Scrolls 6 any time soon. We don’t have a full title for the game, a year in which it will be released or what consoles the game will be playable on! However, with Skyrim being available on both Xbox and PlayStation, as well as receiving a Switch release, you can expect to play it on your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X.

Confirmation from Bethesda that they will be renewing the series is good enough news – for now.

Where will it be set?

In an interview with Eurogamer, Todd Howard confirmed that the team had settled on the location – but he wouldn’t give anything away.

We’re willing to bet that, just like the rest of the titles in the series, Elder Scrolls 6 is going to be set in the continent of Tamriel (the map of which is above).
