ROCKVILLE, Md. — Bethesda Game Studios executive producer promised today that the sixth game in the Elder Scrolls franchise will be released even more times than Skyrim.
“We understand that with Elder Scrolls 6, we need to get even bigger than we did with Skyrim. That’s why we are vowing that, by the end of 2030, we will have released at least ten different iterations of the game,” Howard said. “We’re talking HD updates, remasters, DLC packages, next gen upgrades, and more. We know what you want and we hear you. That’s why we’re promising to not include fishing in Elder Scrolls 6 so that we can release a version that does have fishing several years after the original. Elder Scrolls 6 will be unlike anything you’ve played before, and that’s why we want to make sure you have the chance to purchase it dozens of times.”
Video game journalists praised the announcement from Howard about the upcoming fantasy roleplaying game.
“Todd Howard is one of the only video game developers who has figured out how to bring the gameplay of his work into the real world. In the Elder Scrolls franchise, you’re not just managing the resources of your avatar in Tamriel. You’re also managing the resources of your character in real life; and if you hold all your copies of Skyrim at once, you’re not going to be able to walk quickly anymore,” said freelance video game reporter Emyr O’Reilly. “Hopefully whichever video game news website lets me review this game pays me for each time I have to inevitably write about it over the years, though.”
At press time, Howard further promised that anything future versions of Elder Scrolls 6 will add to the base game will also be created by modders for free within one week of the original release.
