E3 2018: Elder Scrolls 6 Is Officially On The Way

Finally, a new core Elder Scrolls game is on the way.


During Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference, the publisher announced the next game in the Elder Scrolls series: The Elder Scrolls VI. The announcement followed Elder Scrolls Blades, a mobile game that seeks to be a "pure" Elder Scrolls experience.

No other details about the game were provided outside of a short teaser, which you can watch above. It shows a mountainous region and some fog accompanied by a version of the iconic Dovahkiin music. A setting wasn't specified, although fans are sure to do some sleuthing to narrow down the list of possibilities. We also got no indication of when Elder Scrolls VI will release or what platforms it's coming to. But hey, at least we know it really is coming (eventually).

Now Playing: The Elder Scrolls 6 Reveal Teaser Trailer | Bethesda E3 2018

Earlier in the press conference, Bethesda's Todd Howard joked about Skryim's many re-releases. This was followed by a skit featuring Key & Peele's Keegan-Michael Key and Amazon's Alexa. The Elder Scrolls Blades reveal was a bit later, and the Elder Scrolls VI announcement closed the show. We also got news on another much-anticipated project, Starfield, which is the first "wholly original" franchise from Bethesda in 25 years.
