During an interview at E3 2016, Todd Howard, the head of Bethesda Game Studios, claimed the company has at least two major projects in the pipeline before we hear anything about the next Elder Scrolls installment.

While speaking with Geoff Keighley during YouTube’s E3 2016 coverage, Howard admitted that Elder Scrolls 6 is something Bethesda Game Studios will work at some point, but it will take quite some time before this will happen.

Howard added that the team has a lot in mind for this particular game and if he were to reveal how they want the game to be like once it will be released, many gamers and critics will criticize the company for lacking the technology to make it happen. So, instead of talking about this upcoming game, the head of Bethesda Game Studios is deciding to stay mum about the next title altogether.

However, Howard said that the team’s other two large projects are even bigger than anything that they’ve done up until now. Still, despite their size, it won’t take long before we hear some news about them. In fact, these two new projects are expected to be released before The Elder Scrolls 6 is even announced.

At E3, Bethesda announced a Special Edition of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, which is slated to be released on October 28, 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. The new version of the game will come with better graphics and is sure to please all fans of the game series.
