The Elder Scrolls VI Ramps Up Development As Bethesda Starts Hiring

As our long (long) wait for The Elder Scrolls VI continues, we may yet get possibly the biggest bone thrown our way since the E3 2018 teaser trailer. It looks as though Bethesda Softworks is speeding up their development on the game as they look to hire more devs.

As spotted by Reddit user u/BongRippaTheSkeptic, Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Studios is putting out job listings for several positions, including Gameplay Programmer and Video Editor.

While neither of these job postings is immediately tied to The Elder Scrolls VI, the former position’s job overview interestingly states that the team is “looking for talented programmers to join our team that is pushing the bleeding-edge of RPG development for the PC and consoles.” This could be a very likely indicator that Bethesda is scaling up production for TES6.

The opening of the latter position could mean one of two things (or both): a new trailer for either The Elder Scrolls 6 or their other upcoming big-budget title, Starfield.

Speaking of which, another salient point that the Redditor brought about is that it may be “too late” for Bethesda to be looking for devs for Starfield as it looks to be the first of the two to be released in the near future. As such, the most likely project these positions could be opened up for would be that of the sixth main instalment of the hugely-popular single-player RPG franchise.

In any case, it won’t be long before we get another official update from Bethesda. Hopefully they’ll be at E3 2020, given the two upcoming games’ no-shows at last year’s edition.

And hopefully, we can see Skyrim Grandma as part of a future Elder Scrolls VI trailer.
