Despite Clamor from Anxious Gamers, Bethesda Working to Ensure Quality of ‘The Elder Scrolls 6’

Game developer Bethesda Softworks made a splash during the recently-concluded Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 as it officially launched the post-apocalyptic role-playing game “Fallout 4” and confirmed the first-person shooter game “Doom,” the stealth action-adventure game “Dishonored 2,” and the survival horror game “The Evil Within.”

In addition, there was also a beta for team-based combat game “BattleCry.” But there was no mention at all of the other highly-anticipated role-playing game in its roster, “The Elder Scrolls 6.”

Pete Hines, vice president of Bethesda Softworks, says he fully understands why fans of “The Elder Scrolls 6” were a bit slighted when the developer did not mention anything about the game during the E3 2015.

He said that he knows why some fans and gamers are eagerly anticipating the “Skyrim” successor because they are aware that another game publisher has announced that it would be releasing “Skyrim 2” within a year or two.

Hines said that they are not pressured at all by the huge fan clamor because they are working really hard to ensure the quality of “The Elder Scrolls 6,” adding that Bethesda develops and publishes to quality rather than to scale so fans and gamers should managed their expectations.

Just like “Fallout 4,” they would surely be impressed and say the wait is well worth it when “The Elder Scrolls 6” is finally released. The Bethesda official was asked whether “The Elder Scrolls 6” will finally be out by E3 2016 but Hines was still non-committal, refusing to make any pronouncement as to the timetable for the widely-anticipated role-playing game.

False reports

Prior to the E3 2015, there were reports that Bethesda will be making a reveal and launch a gameplay trailer of a role-playing game at its press event on June 14.

A teaser trailer of “Fallout 4” has come out on June 3 so fans of “The Elder Scrolls 6” got a new lease on life on the possibility that Bethesda may launch its gameplay trailer at the event.

These gamers were also relying on semantics and their understanding of the English language because Bethesda did say that it will be launching a gameplay trailer of a role-playing game on its press event before the E3 2015.

The trailer of “Fallout 4,” that was released by Bethesda on June 3 was not a gameplay trailer but a teaser trailer, which sets up the premise of the game while identifying its location. True enough, the gameplay trailer of “Fallout 4” was the one launched during the pre-E3 2015 event.

It turns out that previous reports were false as there was no mention at all of “The Elder Scrolls 6” at the pre- and during the E3 2015 event.

Work of anxious gamers

But before the false reports came out, generated most likely by the intelligent and anxious fans of “The Elder Scrolls 6,” many were already convinced that Bethesda Softworks will not be launching anything at all about their favorite video game at its pre-E3 2015 event.

There have been insinuations as early as May that the game developer will be launching the gameplay trailer and reveal more details of a role-playing game in the annual trade fair.
