Many people are still playing “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” after all this time. That was the unsuspecting vision Bethesda Game Studios had when they released the game. The company’s top exec, Todd Howard, is announcing that “The Elder Scrolls VI” will follow suit because the game is meant to be played even ten years or more after its release.

Den of Geek reported that after the game’s announcement at Bethesda’s E3 2018 panel, it became an “overnight sensation” that fans heavily anticipated its arrival. It definitely had a lot of things to live up to. “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s” playability is superb that many people are still playing it, thanks to the wealth of DLCs and mods that it supported.

Aside from that information, Howard also appealed for patience. Games Radar reported Howard’s revelation that the game is in for a very long timeline. He said that there were two projects which Bethesda worked on — the “Elder Scrolls” and the “Fallout” series. Bethesda’s “Starfield” title was also being developed at the time, and so they decided against going for an early release and opted for the long route.

Bethesda, however, is willing to go this route because it is looking at a grand game. Howard said “every BGS studio” will be working on “Elder Scrolls VI.” Expectations are high and Bethesda is reportedly willing to answer them. Hence, the reason behind why the game is taking too long to finish.

PC Gamer has learned that Bethesda put off the game for too long because it is currently invested in making “Starfield.” When asked about “The Elder Scrolls VI” in 2016, Bethesda said that was not working on it. The year after was when the earliest confirmation of the game was announced, with Pete Hines answering “not yet” when asked whether they were working on the game. Aside from “Starfield,” which is currently playable, Bethesda has since released “Fallout 76.”

“Fallout 76” didn’t become the hit that Bethesda was expecting it to be, so it is essential for the company to be able to produce one with “The Elder Scrolls VI.” With no solid release date — only a year of release — fans will have to buckle down and exert patience, as well as take any news of an impending announcement with “a lot of salt.”
