Bethesda Softworks Announces 'Fallout 76' Release Date and New 'Elder Scrolls' Game

Bethesda Softworks Announces 'Fallout 76' Release Date and New 'Elder Scrolls' Game

Although Bethesda likes to talk about games in its immediate future at its E3 conferences, it allowed itself a couple of longer term announcements at E3 2018.

Speaking of games that aren't coming out any time soon, Bethesda also shared a short teaser trailer for The Elder Scrolls VI, which may or may not be set in the land of Hammerfell.

After years of speculation, Bethesda finally announced its new IP Starfield on Sunday.

Bethesda Game Studios Director Todd Howard referred to the first Starfield game as "next-gen", suggesting it might not see a release before the next generation of consoles (either the PS5 and Xbox Two). Not Skyrim, not a Skyrim sequel, not a Skyrim spin-off, but a game that is actually being called The Elder Scrolls VI.

In the past they've set a precedent for quick turnarounds from announcement to release, famously revealing and shipping Fallout 4 within the space of six months.

Blades, the game is a pure first-person RPG bringing its console-grade graphics to Android and iOS devices.

It wasn't all Elder Scrolls and Fallout last night, either. The previous major Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, was released in 2011 and has since seen so many ports and re-releases that Bethesda's own showcase made an elaborate joke about the game coming to the Amazon Echo.

Both the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series have shared a similar character progression system and open-world backdrop, partially rooted in their sharing of the same gaming engine. What really matters is that Bethesda is, right now, working on a new Elder Scrolls game.

The Elder Scrolls 6 is a while away from hitting the shelves. The release date on the Apple App Store is September 1, 2018, but that might be a placeholder as Howard just mentioned that it was coming this fall. We'll keep updating this whenever new information is revealed, so treat it as a base for news and speculation. Other areas in Tamriel covered in previous games include Morrowind, Hammerfell, and High Rock.
