Two of Bethesda Softworks‘ most highly-anticipated games that were first teased in last year’s E3 – Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI – won’t make an appearance at E3 2019 this June, despite the high expectations of many a fan.
Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirmed this at their 25th Anniversary panel at PAX East last week, citing that it will be “a long time” before either of these titles – with Starfield reportedly preceding TESVI – will officially be released.
After showcasing their latest photogrammetry technology in their 25th-anniversary video to replicate Shirley “Skyrim Grandma” Curry into the new Elder Scrolls game, many questions naturally gravitated toward “When will we see Starfield or The Elder Scrolls VI?”
“Before anyone asks, please be patient,” Howard said in anticipation of these questions. “It’s going to be a long time. It’s not something we’re going to be talking about at E3, either of those games this year.”
Well, there you have it. With a lot of Bethesda content already launched or announced in recent weeks, such as the new Elsweyr expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online and The Elder Scrolls: Blades mobile game, one would naturally be looking forward to Bethesda’s new sci-fi IP Starfield and the latest Elder Scrolls title to be announced at E3 2019. Since they won’t be announced this time, chances are they’ll only be introduced when the next generation of consoles has been announced.
With those two big titles now out of the question, one can’t help but wonder how Bethesda is going to top those two titles during their E3 2019 showcase. Only one way to find out on June 9.
