In an interview, Bethesda Softworks director Todd Howard revealed why fans of the The Elder Scrolls series had to wait more than 10 years for the successor to Skyrim. Howard also comments on another popular game saga, but for now the project is still in its infancy.
The Elder Scrolls 6: Where is the Skyrim sequel?
Skyrim will celebrate its 10th birthday on November 11, 2021. Thanks to a new release and dozens of game-changing mods at times, it’s as if the classic RPG didn’t rust that much. In addition, Bethesda is also releasing a new version of the RPG that was launched on the anniversary, which makes some improvements and finally allows you to fish in the waters of Skyrim.
But fans have been asking for years: Where is The Elder Scrolls 6? Todd Howard, director of Bethesda Studio, also likely gets asked this question several times a day. In an interview with IGN, he took a stand and revealed why The Elder Scrolls 6 is taking so long to develop:
“Everything is taking a little longer than we’d like. But we want to make sure we’re doing everything right. We wouldn’t say it was worth the long wait. But we hope it does justice to the series (…)”
But that’s not the only reason for the delay, according to Howard. In the additional interview, he explained that after the publication of Skyrim, the team would have liked it To deal with other games first (Those: IGN). The developers are currently working on Starfield, which is due to appear in November 2022.
