Lately, Bethesda has been all about the development of "Fallout 4" that it readily pushed back the idea of developing "Elder Scrolls 6" or "Skyrim 2."

According to the Vine Report, Pete Hines of Bethesda recently said that they are pouring all their resources in the development of "Fallout 4," which is due to launch in November and that development of "Elder Scrolls 6" at the moment is just not possible. Bethesda is currently working on the DLC version of "Fallout 4" as well "Elder Scrolls Online," making it impossible for them to commit the possibility of "Elder Scrolls 6" coming to gaming consoles this 2016.

Game Director Todd Howard supported Hines' statement saying, it's useless to announce something that is not yet even half way through. Even so, it's still wrong to announce a game that is just beginning to develop. When Hines denied rumors that "Elder Scrolls 6" will be available in 2016 or 2017, fans can only assume that the beloved game will finally be available on 2018. According to the Parent Herald, despite the contingency, Bethesda recently released the "Elder Scrolls Online" and made it available on two gaming platforms mainly MAC and PC.

The Imperial City is set to launch on Xbox by September 15, followed by Play Station 4. "Elder Scrolls Online" offers new features that could actually ease off the fans' eagerness to see the next light for the "Elder Scrolls." Patches and new areas will be integrated as well as assailants and more adventure can be expected on the game.

Before Bethesda even promised its support for "Fallout 4," a new installment for the "Elder Scrolls" were rumored to be on the "works," either that or "Fallout" is getting a new series title. The latter won and now "Elder Scrolls 6" is pushed back for 2018.

In a report by the Christian Post, Hines was quoted saying "I think 'Fallout 4' can top 'Skyrim.' It could be our biggest release ever. But we will see. It is part of my job to build the megaphone that we hold up to the game."
