The Elder Scrolls 6 has been revealed

The Elder Scrolls VI

The Elder Scrolls VI has been revealed at E3 2018. We have almost nothing to go on at this point other than the fact that the game does exist, and that Bethesda are working on it. Rumours suggest that the game is still in the pre-production stage of development. The shortest of teaser trailers appeared during Bethesda’s E3 conference, which you can take a look at at the bottom of this article.

The game’s setting is yet to be revealed in terms of both time and place, but speculation from fans (and us here in the PCGN office) seems to be settling on either the Redguard home nation of Hammerfell, or the Breton home of High Rock.

I’m fairly sure that The Elder Scrolls VI will make it onto our list of the best RPGs. Eventually.

That’s largely a guess at this point, but it does appear to be from Tamriel’s southern coast. It’s probably not Cyrodil, as that was the setting of The Elder Scrolls 4, Oblivion, and it doesn’t look whimsical enough to be the Summerset Isles.


While we know very little about The Elder Scrolls VI, we can take at least a vague guess at its release date – my personal assumption would be somewhere around 2021.

As I mentioned above though, we can take a better guess at The Elder Scrolls VI setting– current front-runners (in the PCGN office at least) are the Breton stronghold of High Rock, and the Redguard home, Hammerfell.
