The Elder Scrolls 6: Release Date, Platforms, Setting & More

Are you desperately waiting for The Elder Scrolls 6 and don’t know where to go for reliable news? EarlyGame, of course. Here is an article that will be constantly updated once new Elder Scrolls 6 news drop. Let’s get into it.

Just like with Dragon Age 4, it’s hard to find one article that includes all the questions and answers that you might have in regard to The Elder Scrolls 6. So we thought: let’s make one.

Let’s play a little Q&A on the most frequently asked questions that people have in regard to The Elder Scrolls 6. Maybe the one burning in your mind is on here as well?

Everything We Know About The Elder Scrolls 6

The Elder Scrolls 6 Is Now in Pre-Production

A job posting from Bethesda finally confirmed that The Elder Scrolls 6 is really, really, happening: In a job posting they're looking to fill positions on TES 6 and flat out state that the game is in pre-production.

You can read all about it here:

Who Is Making The Elder Scrolls 6?

The Elder Scrolls 6 will – of course – be made by Bethesda again, and honestly? We wouldn’t have it any other way. There is no Elder Scrolls without Bethesda, there is no buggy game that we like to make fun of without putting Todd Howard’s face on it. It’s part of the charm, and The Elder Scrolls 6 will forever be Bethesda’s baby.

What Is The Elder Scrolls 6 Called?

Currently, there is no news about what The Elder Scrolls 6 is going to be called. There have been rumors flowing around the web at some point that The Elder Scrolls 6 was going to be called Redfall, but that turned out to be false. Official news on the name are not out yet, but once they are, make sure to come back to this article and this part will be updated.

Which Platforms Will The Elder Scrolls 6 Release On?

What we can safely say, is that The Elder Scrolls 6 will release on PC and Xbox, but after Microsoft bought Bethesda, we can’t safely say whether The Elder Scrolls 6 will release on PlayStation. The new Bethesda RPG Starfield will be PC/Xbox exclusive, but in regard to the Elder Scrolls 6, Todd Howard said that he wants everyone to have the opportunity to play The Elder Scrolls 6. So don’t give up hope yet, Nintendo and Sony lovers. The Elder Scrolls 6 will probably also release on PS5 and maybe – if you’re super lucky – on Nintendo Switch (though there might just be a new console by the time The Elder Scrolls 6 releases).

What’s The Elder Scrolls 6 Setting?

Let’s start off by saying that Todd Howard has confirmed that there are hints at where The Elder Scrolls 6 will be set within the teaser trailer that was released at an E3 in the past. Before we continue, here is that teaser again:


The most popular theory out there, is that The Elder Scrolls 6 will play in High Rock and Hammerfell, which would make sense looking at the rocky terrain from the teaser trailer (if you want to know more details on this, we have a separate article on it).

Also, back on December 31, 2020, the official The Elder Scrolls Twitter account tweeted something, that made everyone in the replies scream: HAMMERFELL.


What do you think about this? Do you agree that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be set in Hammerfell? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter. But now, let’s get back into the Q&A.

What Engine Is The Elder Scrolls 6 Using?

The Elder Scrolls 6 is built on Creation Engine 2, as confirmed by Todd Howard himself. It’s currently in “design” stage and is the same engine that Starfield is built on. So once Starfield is out, we will have a pretty good idea of how good The Elder Scrolls 6 will look.

When Is The Elder Scrolls 6 Release Date?

We’ve actually written an entire article about this, and we’re not sure whether or not you’ll be happy to read it or not, so let’s just rip off that bandage straight away: according to a known industry insider, The Elder Scrolls 6 will release either 2026 or 2027. I’m so sorry to be the one that has to tell you that today.

But hey… Starfield will come out soon! If that excites you.

If we hear anything more that might interest you, we will update this article. Until then, make sure you come back anyway!
