Grand Theft Auto fans were presented with a trailer for GTA 6 in December 2023, which revealed the game’s 2025 release window. Fans of The Elder Scrolls series are naturally excited about this and are expecting a similar reveal of The Elder Scrolls 6, the highly awaited sequel. After the game’s brief teaser trailer debuted in 2018, fans anxiously awaited official announcements from Bethesda. The Elder Scrolls 6 has occasionally been mentioned in passing in recent years, but those bits of information were frequently linked to other significant Xbox releases, such as the upcoming Fable. There is hope for change as 2024 approaches, and fans might soon be getting a new trailer for The Elder Scroll 6.
The Elder Scrolls 6 has only recently entered early development. This indicates that even if there are updates for fans to look forward to in 2024, the release of the game is likely to be closer to 2030 rather than in the immediate future.
The upcoming June sixth anniversary of the first teaser for The Elder Scrolls 6 is a strong argument for a new trailer to be released sooner rather than later. Even while Bethesda hasn’t formally announced any plans for 2024, it makes sense that the developer would at this time give a sneak peek at the much-anticipated game. Another option is that Bethesda will release updates on The Elder Scrolls 6 to keep the enthusiastic fan base informed and excited.
A further strong argument for bringing The Elder Scrolls 6 to light in 2024 is the poor reception Starfield received—it wasn’t even shortlisted for a Game of the Year nomination at The Game Awards. It becomes essential that Bethesda shows that it is learning from its most recent release and incorporating those lessons into the creation of its upcoming big project. Long stretches of quiet can also present difficulties for games, and Bethesda can remedy this by sharing information and updates about The Elder Scrolls 6.
One big reason why The Elder Scrolls 6 might not be released in 2024 is that Todd Howard of Bethesda has expressed regret at the game’s early unveiling. It is equally likely that 2024 will be a quiet year for the cherished fantasy role-playing game series, despite a counterargument that suggests the best course of action is to disclose some information about the game.
