Some think we may see The Elder Scrolls: Argonia (or whatever it will be called) at E3 2016 in June. However, this would be exceptionally early if the game is still years away from release.
Skyrim was officially announced in December 2010, 11 months before its eventual release in November 2011. Unless Bethesda Game Studios has radically strayed from the development cycle strategy it has used since being formed in 2002, we may have to wait a bit longer for official details.
There is a glimmer of hope, though. In an interview with gamesindustry.biz in March 2016, Skyrim game director Todd Howard was asked to clarify his tease that Bethesda Game Studios has “three big and crazy” projects on-the-go, saying: “They’re a long way off. I think the larger point was, no-one should expect to hear about those anytime soon. We always overlap projects. We just have more going on now than we had before.”
That may sound like bad news, but it means Elder Scrolls 6 may have been in active development way before October 2015.
This isn’t just a games industry person spouting off either. Bethesda Game Studios is expanding. It opened a new Montreal studio in December 2015. At the time it had 40 developers, but a quick look at the ZeniMax jobs board website shows you the studio is continuing to scale up.
