With Fallout 4 scheduled for release this Fall, and an inevitable set of expansions sure to follow, Bethesda Game Studios is unlikely to have much time to think about the next entry in the Elder Scrolls series. In fact, Bethesda’s Pete Hines told DualShockers during this year’s Gamescom expo that it will probably be a “very long time” before we hear anything about The Elder Scrolls VI.
Bethesda’s Vice President of Marketing told the publication that Bethesda Game Studios is 100% focused on Fallout 4, and that the team isn’t large enough to handle multi-game development. And even then, it’s always possible that the next from Bethesda Game Studios won’t be a sequel to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Of course, fans can still get their Elder Scrolls fix with The Elder Scrolls Online, an MMO that was developed by ZeniMax Online Studios. ESO’s first expansion, Imperial City, should be available in the next few weeks.
