Last night, Bethesda announced the double whammy of both The Elder Scrolls VI and new sci-fi title Starfield, releasing brief teaser trailers for both that really only signified that both games are in development and set to arrive at some point. However, both might not surface on this current generation of consoles.
Of the two, Starfield is apparently further along in development, according to Game Director Todd Howard, but both are in the early stages of production. “I would say Elder Scrolls VI is in pre-production and Starfield is in production. It’s a game we’ve been making for a while," Howard told Geoff Keighley in an interview.
“Starfield is playable, Elder Scrolls VI, not in that way yet," he added. When quizzed on the games a few years ago, Howard had mentioned that "the technology wasn’t there yet for the game they wanted to build." Keighley followed up on his original question, asking: "Is the technology there now?”
According to Howard, “it’s getting closer…”
Potentially, that means that The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield are more likely to arrive on the next wave of platforms, whenever they may eventually surface. Both teaser trailers were release to formally announce the games and establish their tone, Howard explained, but we could be in for a long wait before we see either of them.
