‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ Release Date, News & Update: ‘Fallout 4’ VR, ‘Fallout 5’ Overshadow Sequel; Equipping Overhaul, Disguise, Organized Bandits Expected

It's been a while since fans heard anything about "The Elder Scrolls 6." Bethesda already confirmed that the studio will indeed be doing the sequel, but unfortunately, fans shouldn't expect it soon. In fact, reports are speculating that the sixth installment to the "Elder Scrolls" franchise will arrive no earlier than 2019, thanks to several big projects that the studio is currently prioritizing.

Fortunately for fans, this means that this will give the studio plenty of time to accommodate fan wishlists, desires and theories on what to expect. Here's the complete guide of everything you need to know about "The Elder Scrolls 6": release dates, new features, updates and upgrades, among others.

Release date delayed 

It's been previously reported that Bethesda's Todd Howard already confirmed the existence of "The Elder Scrolls 6." However, he cautioned fans from expecting too much, as the studio is currently not considering it as an active project.

Currently, "The Elder Scrolls 6" is largely overshadowed by other projects, such as "Fallout 4" VR edition and "Fallout 5." This puts its release date around the ballpark of a 2019 release, since it takes at least two years for studios to produce and develop a game. Moreover, "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" is still going strong, reported Video Games Republic, which means Bethesda is more focused on updating the existing game than creating a sequel.

What to expect from 'The Elder Scrolls 6'

Even with that time frame, fans can still presuppose about what features should and would appear on "The Elder Scrolls 6." For one, the Equipping Overhaul can be introduced in the game, which will allow players to equip themselves with a weapon of each type.

Master of Disguise could also make sneaking into enemy territory easier, and having organized bandits in Skyrim will make for a more engaging system of bandits, according to What Culture. Stay tuned for more "The Elder Scrolls 6" updates.
