Bethesda Softworks is currently working on the two major role-playing games The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield. The company has confirmed that the two projects will receive extensive engine upgrades designed to provide a high-tech experience.
At the E3 in 2018, Bethesda Softworks announced the two big role-playing games The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield. The company left it open when further information or even first impressions from the two projects can be expected.
In that sense, Todd Howard of Bethesda Softworks pointed out that Bethesda Game Studios are currently working on extensive engine upgrades – the largest since the development of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion.
“With each new console cycle, we evolved together,” says Howard. “From bringing mods to consoles with Fallout 4, now over a billion downloads, to the latest technologies fueling Xbox Series X/S.”
“These new systems are optimized for the vast worlds we love to create, with generational leaps not just in graphics, but CPU and data streaming as well. It’s led to our largest engine overhaul since Oblivion, with all new technologies powering our first new IP in 25 years, Starfield, as well as The Elder Scrolls VI,” Howard stated.
Due to the takeover by Microsoft, it is still unclear whether The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield will still appear for the PlayStation 5 or whether it will only be released on the Xbox and the PC platforms.
