Starfield will launch on Xbox the following week. After finishing the expansive space RPG, Bethesda intends to work on The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5, keeping the studio busy for several more years. In a recent interview, Todd Howard discussed the next RPG and mentioned that it might be his final Elder Scrolls game before calling it a day.

Howard recently admitted to thinking of announcing The Elder Scrolls 6 in 2018 during an interview with GQ. Even though the announcement during Bethesda’s E32018 conference was quick, Howard believes he would have handled it differently now that it has been five years.

That is something I’ve asked myself a lot, Howard added. “I’m not sure. I probably should have said it in a more casual manner.

The new project already has a codename, according to Howard. He will not, however, say what the game’s working title is at this time. Howard hasn’t said much about the forthcoming game yet, but he did say something about Elder Scrolls 6 towards the end.

Howard explained, “It’s like I don’t want to answer, but I want to be polite.” We want it to serve as the ultimate fantasy-world simulator, I’ll say that much. Given the passing of time, there are various ways to do that.

Given that Elder Scrolls 6 is still in the development cycle, Howard might be reticent to share details about it. The game won’t be ready for a while, given Bethesda’s lengthy development cycles. The sequel to Skyrim will not be released for at least five years, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer during the FTC v. Microsoft trial.

During the FTC v. Microsoft trail, Xbox chief Phil Spencer mentioned that Elder Scrolls 6 is at least five years away.

The majority of Bethesda’s efforts have been directed on the launch of Starfield, the studio’s first original IP in more than 20 years. According to reports, the team intends to support the game for a few years until the majority of the problems have been resolved. The majority of the developers will switch over to Elder Scrolls 6 during this period.

Howard also mentioned giving up game development. He looks to Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto’s work at Nintendo as inspiration for a long career.

When asked about retiring, Howard responded, “It’s uncomfortable for me, but that’s a long, long way off. I want to keep doing it forever. However, take a look at [71-year-old Mario inventor and Nintendo great Shigeru Miyamoto], who I believe will change the way I operate. He continues to do it.
