Bethesda’s Senior VP of Global Marketing, Pete Hines, has firmly ruled out, with prejudice, that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be launching anytime soon. In fact, he went so far as to indirectly give a time frame of “years from now” for details, which puts a potential launch at, well, your guess is as good as ours.

This firm announcement that The Elder Scrolls 6 is so far out comes via Twitter where one user tweeted Pete Hines, saying “let’s cut the sh$t, when can we expect some info on #TheElderScrollsVI? Well, as it turns out, Pete Hines really did cut the shit and squashed any hope of The Elder Scrolls 6 happening anytime soon.

Obviously, this statement comes as a major disappointment to a lot of fans, but it’s not like Bethesda has spared us anything about the game outside of an announcement back in 2018. Knowing now that it’s likely half a decade away makes that announce trailer even stranger. It’s likely that the company decided to shift gears to other projects. After all, there are a ton of other titles much closer to launching, including the aformentioned Starfield, Deathloop, and even Ghostwire: Tokyo.
