Don’t Expect The Elder Scrolls VI or Starfield at E3 2019, Says Bethesda

Putting recent rumors to rest, Bethesda has asked fans to be patient as it has no plans to bring The Elder Scrolls VI or Starfield to E3 2019.

While discussing a new game engine at PAX East this week, Executive Producer Todd Howard said:

That’s just a little sneak peek at the technology that we’ve been building. People are going to see [the tech] at first, actually, in Starfield. And so that tech will have like the second version of it in The Elder Scrolls VI, and before everyone asks, please be patient. It’s going to be a long time. It’s not something we’re going to be talking about at E3 – either of those games – this year. And so patience, please. But given the [Elder Scrolls] anniversary, we did want to give everybody a taste.

While this may come as a disappointment to some, Bethesda did bring something Elder Scrolls VI-related to PAX East. The developer announced that 82-year old grandmother Shirley Curry, who is known for her Skyrim videos, will be added to the game as a non-playable character.

During its panel, Bethesda discussed its plans to use photogrammetry technology to create highly-detailed 3D versions of real-life objects in video games. Similar technology will be used to add Curry to The Elder Scrolls VI.

“This means a lot to me because I would be extremely happy to know that somebody else was playing with my character in a future Elder Scrolls game,” an excited Curry aka “Skyrim grandma” said in a video. The excitement carried over to Twitter, where she shared a photo of her Elder Scrolls t-shirt and wrote, “well, since they made the announcement today about me as a character in the next TES game, I can show my favorite thing I brought away with me!”

Congrats, Curry!
