November 11, 2019 is celebrating eight years since the launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The game has remained very popular, thanks to several new settings on new platforms, and Bethesda now hopes to recreate the success of the next game of the series.
In an interview with IGN, Bethesda's head Todd Howard told the studio to design "The Elder Scrolls VI" to hold players for at least ten years. Adventure Skarim showed that it was possible, and Howard believes that waiting a little longer between each game can be a good thing.
– Waiting will obviously be long, and this is already the case. On the one hand, I think it's good to miss things. I think it helps people to see things with new eyes and I think that when they finally see the game and what we think, we will get a better understanding of the wait of technology and what we want to play.
As Howard points out, fans are not surprisingly frustrated by the wait, as millions still enjoy Skyrim.
– They want it, they still play it and thanks to the modifications, it can almost be played for any future. And we are eight years after the launch of Skyrim. When we reach The Elder Scrolls VI, we know that this is a game that we have to design for players to continue to do it for at least a decade.
Starfield first in line
However, before Bethesda came, the developer has another project that needs to be realized first – Starfield. We still know very little about the mysterious science-fiction game, but what we know is that Starfield will be released before Old Scroll VI.
For IGN, Howard told Bethesda to wait for Starfield to last for years, but in the end time was right to break down the fixed cycle with the Star Scroll and Fallout.
– We did so many things, and we went from Star Scrolls to Fallout to Star Scrolls to Fallout. At the same time, you have Starfield in your head, then you think "when?". It can never be, you can never say. But we are a creative group and we must Just do this game and this is the right time. Therefore, Old scrolls must wait a little.
