Todd Howard says ‘The Elder Scrolls VI’ is still in a ‘design phase’
The newest installment to The Elder Scrolls franchise was announced at E3 2018, however, fans of the open-world role-playing fantasy game must hold their breaths for a little longer as Xbox boss Todd Howard revealed sad news.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Howard said that "It's good to think of The Elder Scrolls 6 as still being in a design [phase]."
"But we're checking the tech: 'Is this going to handle the things we want to do in that game?' Every game will have some new suites of technology so Elder Scrolls 6 will have some additions on to Creation Engine 2 that that game is going to require," he added.
Creation Engine 2 is the development engine that Bethesda’s upcoming sci-fi RPG Starfield is also using.
“The [Starfield] technology, Creation Engine 2, is sort of built for both [games],” he said. “It’s like a new tech base. The vast majority of our development work is on Starfield right now but everybody works on everything so the projects kind of intertwine,” Howard said.
While waiting, Bethesda fans can experience Starfield, which is slated for a November 11, 2022 release for Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
