Starfield is popping out earlier than The Elder Scrolls 6 as a result of Bethesda Games Studios actually needed to create one thing new alongside its standard RPG franchises.
Speaking with IGN Bethesda’s Todd Howard mentioned for therefore a few years, the cycle was “Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Fallout,” and the crew had different concepts it needed to develop.
Howard mentioned Starfield is a game he’s needed to make for a “very long time,” and as soon as Fallout four growth wrapped, the crew determined this could be the following game.
“You have this Starfield game in your head, you sort of say, well, when? It can be never, you could say never,” Howard mentioned (thanks, GamesRadar).
“But look, we’re creatives, and it’s like we have to make this game, and this is the time. So Elder Scrolls 6 is going to have to wait a little bit.”
And it’s not as if the corporate isn’t offering a “high quality Elder Scrolls” title to the general public, in line with Howard, particularly for the reason that Elder Scrolls Online is doing moderately nicely.
But, it’s apparent from Howard’s feedback the hole between Skyrim and Elder Scrolls 6 is going to be very long. And it “already is,” he mentioned, as a result of Skyrim was launched eight years in the past. Yes. Eight years in the past.
“On one hand, I think it’s good to miss things. I think that makes people come to it with really fresh eyes. I think when they eventually see the game, and what we have in mind, they will understand the gap more in terms of technology and what we want to do,” mentioned Howard.
“This is a game we need to design so people will want to play it for a decade [like Skyrim] – at least.”
As for why Starfield wouldn’t be shown at E3 this year, all Howard would say is everybody ought to simply stay “very patient.” He then reiterated Bethesda’s stance on not displaying an excessive amount of of a game till its nearer to launch.
