The Elder Scrolls 6 hasn’t received a release date yet, and it looks like we may have to wait quite a while. Phil Spencer’s recent comments put Elder Scrolls 6 (via IGN) release date no earlier than 2028.

Despite the announcement at Bethesda’s E3 2018 conference, little more than a logo has been revealed, and more than four years later, we still have few concrete details about the next Elder Scrolls game. We don’t even have a subtitle or a year of release. Todd Howard said the game will come later Star fieldthe company’s next big IP, while Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said it won’t be released until later Fairy tale 4. Given Star field will be out later this year and Fable does not have a release date yet, let’s wait Elder Scrolls 6 it’s bound to be long.

Platforms for The Elder Scrolls 6 haven’t been confirmed yet, but given Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Media, PC and Xbox Series S|X releases are almost a certainty. A PS5 version is far less certain, however, as Microsoft could choose to make the new Elder Scrolls game an Xbox exclusive. Likewise, the Xbox One and PS4 releases seem extremely unlikely, as Starfield showcases Bethesda’s move away from last-gen hardware.

We are willing to bet that, as with all other games in the series, The Elder Scrolls 6 will take place on the continent of Tamriel. Previous games have taken us to High Rock, Hammerfell, Morrowind, Cyrodil and Skyrim. Valenwood, Elsweyr and Black Marsh are the largest places left to explore. However, while these areas are prime spots to explore, that doesn’t mean Bethesda won’t be returning to areas from previous games.

It was said that The Elder Scrolls 6 it could be set in Valenwood, the Bosmer home. It’s an area of ​​Tamriel that Bethesda hasn’t explored much, and this is reportedly internal Bethesda memo dates back to 2014. In this memo, Bethesda employees were allegedly warned against using the terms Fallout: Nuka World, Elder Scrolls VI or Project Greenheart.

It’s hard to tell from the short E3 clip we have of the game. However, since it was demonstrated, general opinion has shifted towards the idea that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be set in Hammerfell or High Rock.

Adding credence to the Hammerfell rumors is an official Elder Scrolls post Twitter account in late 2020. Which says “transcribe the past and map the future” and shows an image with an unmapped region of Hammerfell. There is, however, the possibility that this teaser is not referring Elder Scrolls 6 at all.

Of course, those of us who know the world of Tamriel from Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim and yes, even Elder Scrolls online, the entire world is a real expanse of different lands and environments in which the game could be set. We know one thing for sure; wherever it is set, we can expect to complete a large number of side missions.

Bethesda wants to take its time to get it right
The Elder Scrolls 6 that’s probably still a few years away, but that’s not because Bethesda is deliberately dragging its heels. In an interview with ignwhen discussing the gap between Skyrim and its sequel, Howard said, “You’d think we had the kind of gap we’re having between us Skyrim and the sequel? I can’t say it’s a good thing. I wish I could wave a magic wand and the game we wanted to make […] just out? Absolutely.”
