Everything, just no Skyrim successor
What comes out more: The Elder Scrolls 6 or GTA 6? Some games let s wait forever. In the case of The Elder Scrolls 6, Todd Howard has expressed itself about the reasons for the long wait.
So he explains that in the past ten years — because old is the popular adventure role-playing game Skyrim — in the studio more frequent the desire to work on other games away from the Elder Scrolls series. Meanwhile, games like Fallout 4 and the controversial Fallout 76 appeared. Next year, Bethesda wants to make his fans happy with Star field.
