Bethesda’s Vice President, Pete Hines, is known to be quite active on Twitter and he rung in the new year by making fun of a prediction made by Michael Pachter that involved The Elder Scrolls VI.

The analyst had made the shocking prediction that Bethesda was planning to announce a new Elder Scrolls game during E3 this year and would be releasing the game in 2017 itself, near the end of the year.

Bethesda has earlier carried out a similar strategy for Fallout 4, which is announced during its press conference at E3 2015 and went on to release it near the end of the same year.



However, Pete Hines has put all rumours and predictions to rest for those thinking that it’s planning to use a similar tactic for Elder Scrolls VI.

Hines made the following tweet rebutting Patcher’s prediction completely.

This clearly means Bethesda doesn’t seem to have any plans of releasing The Elder Scrolls VI this year and it’s still quite a while away.

The publisher had previously confirmed that although The Elder Scrolls VI will happen but it wasn’t currently undergoing active development, suggesting the game is still quite far away from release.


Bethesda released Skyrim in 2011 and recently released a remastered version of it that was very well received.

The company has not formally made any announcement relating to The Elder Scrolls VI at the time of going to press.
