The headline seems disappointing. The Elder Scrolls 6, I would understand. But Starfield? Is that serious?
Bethesda has said The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield won’t be shown during its E3 2019 presentation this year.
The company is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls, but sad to say, it doesn’t look like we’re gonna see the sixth entry in our near future.
The announcement was made during the company’s Bethesda Game Days stream at PAX East 2019 on March 29. “It’s going to be a long time,” said Todd Howard during the stream. “It’s not something we are going to be talking about at E3, either of those games, this year.”
A few years more we wait.
In July 2018, Howard said Elder Scrolls 6 was in pre-production, but Starfield was already in it’s playable state. Considering the game ‘could be cross-gen,’ we have years of waiting.
Sony is currently in work on the successor to PS4, and Microsoft is working on the next Xbox which’s codename Scarlett how rumors tell. Launch windows for each console deviate between 2020 and 2021.
Sony will not show at E3 this year, so it would lead to the firm could announce the console at PSX 2019. The firm has yet to announce whether it will host the event or not. Also, Microsoft might announce the next Xbox at E3, but with two new skus said to be heading to retail this year, it may focus on those at the annual L.A. event instead.
With next-gen currently all busy, maybe we finally will get Starfield next year, or in 2021.
The Elder Scrolls 6? I hope sometime before the enthusiasm fades. We’re sure Shirley “Skyrim Grandmas” Curry would too, considering she will appear in the game. At any case, I hope to see it before I face my end.
Bethesda’s E3 2019 showcase takes place on Sunday, June 9. It gonna be streamed live beginning at 5:30pm PT, 8:30pm ET, 1:30am UK (June 10).
