This is all the latest information on Bethesda’s prospective The Elder Scrolls VI game, including when we can expect it to release, any gameplay and story details, and more.
The popularity of The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and Skyrim helped the Elder Scrolls name to skyrocket and become, arguably, the role-playing series in the industry.
Earlier games such as Morrowind were already excelling in creating incredibly detailed open-world adventures for players to lose hours to. However, it’s the two recent entries that took the series from revered but niche RPG to mainstream success.
Fans now look towards the future with the sixth official game in the series currently in development, and here’s what we know about it so far.
When does The Elder Scrolls VI release?
It was back at E2 2018 when we finally received official confirmation that the much-anticipated game was in development. Aside from ongoing content being pumped out for The Elder Scrolls: Online, the last fully-fledged Elder Scrolls was The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim that first came out in 2011.
It has since been re-released multiple times, across different consoles – much to the resignation of Elder Scrolls fans hoping for a new game.
Since The Elder Scrolls VI was first teased by Bethesda, there has been no official date as to when we can expect the game.
If the scoop of one game reporter is to be believed, then it’s possible that we may not see the game until 2026 at the earliest.
Despite Bethesda’s size and stature, they are currently working on multiple projects at the moment such as a new Indiana Jones game, the almost mythical Starfield, Elder Scrolls: Online content, and more. Given some of the problems that Bethesda faced regarding their last big RPG title – Fallout 76 – they may be doing their utmost to ensure the game is as perfect as can be.
Here is the official announcement trailer for the game:
Which platforms will The Elder Scrolls 6 be on?
In a truly stunning turn of events, Microsoft announced in September 2020 that they had acquired Bethesda in an eye-watering $7.5 billion deal.

The announcement sent shockwaves throughout the gaming world, leading many to question the future of forthcoming Bethesda developed and published video games.
In an interview with Games Industry, Bethesda Director and Executive ProducerTodd Howard discussed the availability of The Elder Scrolls VI. When asked about it only being exclusive to the Xbox systems, he commented that it would be “hard to imagine.”
The details of Microsoft’s partnership with Bethesda are still quite vague, and it hasn’t been made clear which games will be Xbox exclusives, which will be timed-exclusives, and which will receive general releases.
TES6 gameplay and story details
Right now, we don’t really know anything about the gameplay or story outside of what’s been seen in the announcement trailer.
At the 2020 Develop: Brighton conference, Todd Howard sat down to discuss what was going on with Bethesda and provided some new updates on their game engine and how it would affect The Elder Scrolls VI.
In relation to the updated game engine, he said, “It’s taken us longer than we would have liked, but it’s going to power everything we’re doing with Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6. When people see the results, they’ll hopefully be as happy as we are with what’s on the screen and also how we can go about making our games.”
Some of Bethesda’s open-world games have taken a bit of criticism for perhaps not delivering the visuals and performance that other similar games had been producing.
We assume that The Elder Scrolls will still largely follow in the footsteps of previous games in the series by providing a core-RPG experience. Focusing on intricate customization and character building in a vast world filled with daring side quests and a juicy main story.
Understandably, everything is a bit obscure regarding The Elder Scrolls VI details are obviously being very secretive and protective of its details.
As concrete information begins to filter through, we’ll be sure to update this page with crucial information regarding The Elder Scrolls VI.

Battlefield 6 may not release on PS4 & Xbox One
PS4 and Xbox One owners may be disappointed to hear rumors that the latest Battlefield 6 will potentially be exclusive to the new generation of consoles.
Battlefield fans who are yet to pick up a next-generation console may be disappointed as leaker reveals the developers are considering scrapping release on PS4 & Xbox One as a whole.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One have been difficult to purchase since their respective releases last year. This may be even more devastating for those looking to pick up Battlefield 6 on their last-gen consoles.
Battlefield 6 is set to release this year, with the reveal trailer arriving sometime this summer. Not a lot is known about EA’s latest installment in the series, with some speculating it could be set in the future.
Although there is no concrete evidence, reliable leaker, @_Tom_Henderson_, has not yet heard of Battlefield 6 coming to the now past generation of consoles.
It is possible that PS4 and Xbox One aren’t the focus of EA’s new release, but could still be arriving on the last-gen of consoles upon release.
However, the fact that there has been no news and we are getting ever closer to the reveal and release, leads Tom to believe there is a strong possibility that it won’t be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
Further, this also leads Tom to believe Battlefield 6 will be releasing on Xbox Game Pass. The loss of players from the older generation of consoles will be a big hit to the day one player count.
However, this loss can be balanced by being introduced on the Xbox Game Pass, leading to a wave of new players on the Xbox Series X.
Whatever happens, it’s safe to say that if you are still in need of the next generation of consoles, you should try your best to get one as soon as possible, especially if you’re a fan of the Battlefield series.

Big map changes and Crypto event details revealed Apex Legends Season 9 leak
Some new Apex Legends leaks point to Olympus going through big changes in Season 9, and Crypto’s heirloom event having a special theme.
A new Apex Legends leak has emerged which hints at some major map changes for Olympus and World’s Edge when Season 9 goes live. It also reveals new details about the Crypto heirloom event too.
Apex Legends has gone through various changes since launch, with each update bringing new content like weapons, heirlooms, and even Legends. The game’s map has also been reformed with new areas like Olympus joining the battle royale.
While Kings Canyon and World’s Edge have been largely altered from their original forms, Olympus has yet to be touched. Now, some new leaks have popped up which suggest that’s all about to change soon.
“Olympus should get the “big map change” at season start,” he tweeted. “World’s Edge should get a small map change mid-season.” So far, it doesn’t seem like anything is planned for Kings Canyon but that could change.
Season 8 completely reformed that map, and left it in a ruined state. So, it’s likely that Respawn might plan some bigger changes for it in future seasons.
Additionally, the data miner also had revealed some new information regarding the upcoming Crypto heirloom event. The season three legend is getting a Jikdo sword as an heirloom, and the event will have a “post-apocalypse” theme.
That event will probably also bring some brand-new skins and other cosmetics for players to equip. With a potential “post-apocalypse” theme, we wouldn’t be too surprised if we ended up seeing some creative new designs.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and are subject to change until Respawn announces something official. That said, we’ll keep checking for further updates, and will inform you once we learn something new.
