TES 6 is Not in Development According to Pete Hines

Reported by both gamespot and PCGamer, TES 6 is not in development according to Bethesda VP of marketing Pete Hines.  The subject came up after a series of Tweets by Hines and was later verified an clarified by Hines in a statement to PCGamer.  This directly conflicts with previous statements made by Bethesda game designer Todd Howard at a D.I.C.E 2016 interview, where he confirmed development for TES6.

So what does this spell for a TES6 release date?  Don't hold your breath.  Given the standard Bethesda 3 year game release cycle, FO4 was released on Nov 10th, 2015.  'Starcraft' will be released in the Fall of 2018 and TES6 will hit the shelves in 2021.

2021 is a long ways off. And that's also 10 years from Skyrim.

Something tells me that at some point they will remaster Fallout 3. I don't know, I get the impression they will. And it would make sense since Fallout 3 is basically their first developed Fallout game. As long as it's a remaster and not a remake, I'm fine with that. I'll be damned if they made a Fallout 3 remake and turns out like Fallout 4.

edit: eh... but then again, even if they just remasted FO3, they would taint that game with their Beth.net and their new innovative paid mods.... Ah well.

I'm getting sick of that company.

And how much 'legs' does Skyrim have?  I don't think Bethesda is worried about their core fan base or the people who love The Elder Scrolls.  I think they are banking on the goldfish-level attention spans of casual and normie gamers.  By the time TES6 is rolled out 10 years will have pasted since Skyrim was released.  That is a long time in today's 'now-now-now' instant gratification culture.  Starcraft will most likely be something similar to FO4 in space.  IF that's the case it will be a pain in the ass to mod and not worth the effort.  A Bethesda game has one draw, and that is 'you can mod it'.  Hamper it like FO4 did and Bethesda has nothing to offer.

And I have the feeling no one of consequence will be talking about Starcraft next year, if CDRed releases Cyberpunk 2077 on schedule.  It will be a replay of the 2015 Witcher3 vs FO4.

EDIT: endgame beat me to the punch with Skyrim being 10 yrs old when TES6 is released. ¬¬
