Why May 6 Elder Scrolls is still in pre-production

With Skyrim now in its tenth year, many fans are now clamoring for the next game, but the question is why did Elder Scrolls 6 take so long?

There are two main franchises that players are still unsure of their release date or whether they are still in development, Grand Theft Auto and The Elder Scrolls. While the current installs have been out for years, there doesn’t seem to be any word on whether new releases are being released or their current status. As Bethesda continues to work Starfield, it’s understandable that a new entry in its flagship epic RPG world is a while away, but it looks like the wait could be even longer, and many are probably wondering why Why does the company take so long to get the next game?


It has recently been reported, although not confirmed by Bethesda herself, that it is possible The Elder Scrolls 6 It’s still in pre-production, which means it could still be a few years until it’s completed. Along with such reports, there was a tweet in which a user uploaded a screenshot from an alleged job listing where the studio appears to be hiring a new candidate. However, the image doesn’t say anything about TES6 is in pre-production, so readers are advised to take all this information lightly. All that can be said for sure at this point is that the game isn’t likely to launch for a while. But there must be a reason why there is still no word on it.

It’s about longevity

Bethesda said they wanted Elder Scrolls 6 for a long shelf life, so it sounds like the company wants to move forward with releases that can stand the test of time, or that people will keep playing for years to come. This, along with Starfield, which could be why the company doesn’t want to jump right in ES game. It sounds a bit cynical, but suppose that the Anniversary Edition of Skyrim launched late last year, there is still some longevity in the fifth installment. Apparently, while working on another project, those who like Skyrim can still be a money cow for a developer, even after a decade.


But it still doesn’t stop fan speculation. As with all intellectual property that is not officially talked about, the community will ultimately use whatever information it feels it has and draw its own conclusions. There have been many Elder Scrolls 6 fan theory, such as where it might be set, or it could even be a prequel. Currently, there is no information from Bethesda or other sources regarding the development of the game itself, so many people may not take this information too seriously.

Of course, it will be very frustrating for many if it turns out that the next game in the series is still years away, with work just beginning. With Skyrim just celebrated ten years, it’s understandable that the fan base is wanting any information on the whereabouts of the next game. A decade is a long time for a single entry to be considered one of the greatest RPG series in gaming history with no studio talking about what happens next. But, like Rockstar and GTA 5, there is still a product that is currently very lucrative.
