Don’t expect many details about Elder Scrolls 6 until “six months before release,” says former Skyrim designer

The Elder Scrolls 6 may have been announced five years ago, but a former designer at Bethesda doesn’t think we’ll know much about it until closer to release.

We all know that The Elder Scrolls 6 is a way out, even if we don’t know exactly when that will be. After all, the supposedly real development of the sequel, which has been awaited for over a decade, only began in August. So it’s not exactly surprising to hear that it will probably be a while before we hear anything concrete. According to Bruce Nesmith, who was formerly a lead designer at Bethesda and worked on the groundbreaking Skyrim, we probably won’t hear anything concrete about the game until about six months before release (via MinnMax).

Bruce Nesmith’s great interview with MinnMax.

The best time to talk about it is six months before release. So just the fact that everyone – you know, the pitchforks and…” When the torches went out, Todd said, “Yeah, we’re doing Elder Scroll 6 – I promise you, it’s real, it’s going to happen!”

“But I bet you won’t hear much about details until a good six months before release, and that’s how it should be – I think that’s the best approach and it’s proven to work really well, at least for. “Bethesda.

Six months seems like a pretty accurate timeline for Bethesda. After all, it wasn’t until the game’s big presentation in June that we got a truly comprehensive look at Starfield. Ironically, Starfield was announced in the same year as The Elder Scrolls 6, 2018. While that was a few years ago, considering the Amazon Alexa version of Skyrim was announced at the same press conference, confirmation of a sequel felt long ago overdue.

If you’re interested in learning more about Nesmith’s thoughts on what The Elder Scrolls 6 will look like, the full interview is worth a look, as he’s pretty confident that the sequel will be Skyrim’s “You do it to be better at it.” will return” leveling system and “traces” of his magic system.
