Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference had a bit of everything. New games like head-to-head sci-fi battler Deathloop got announced and the lid was lifted on fresh content for Rage 2 and Fallout 76. But, the two games most fans most wanted to see more from were almost absent: Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6.

Now and again The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’s horse armour thing comes up, and this week Bethesda director Todd Howard himself has weighed in on the subject. Talking to IGN about upcoming games Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI, Howard said of the spangly equine regalia that “people will buy anything” but “that doesn’t mean you should do it”.
Bethesda wants The Elder Scrolls 6 to be playable for “at least” ten years. In a recent interview with IGN, veteran director Todd Howard said that the longevity of Skyrim meant that its successor would have to last just as long.
A trademark dispute between Bethesda parent company Zenimax and book publisher BookBreeze – which could have affected the future of The Elder Scrolls 6 – has been resolved. In a statement last night, the two parties confirmed that the matter had been resolved.
This probably shouldn’t come as a surprise, but today Todd Howard confirmed that you won’t be seeing anything from Bethesda Game Studios’ next big RPGs at E3 this year. So if you were hoping for a Starfield release date or an Elder Scrolls VI release date, you’re going to have to keep on hoping for a whole lot longer.
Last year, Bethesda parent ZeniMax registered a trademark for ‘Redfall,’ and while we haven’t seen that name used in any official marketing material, the safest bet is that it’ll be the subtitle of The Elder Scrolls VI. But the name is now at the centre of a trademark dispute that isn’t scheduled to resolve until August 2020. You probably shouldn’t be harboring any illusions about an Elder Scrolls VI release date before then, regardless.
