Bethesda’s Todd Howard Discusses The Elder Scrolls VI and Retirement

In a recent interview with GQ, Todd Howard from Bethesda Game Studios shared some new details about The Elder Scrolls VI and discussed his thoughts on retirement. Howard revealed that he often wonders if announcing the game so early in June 2018 was the right decision. However, he did mention that The Elder Scrolls VI already has a codename, although he chose not to disclose it.

The main goal for The Elder Scrolls VI, according to Howard, is to create the “ultimate fantasy-world simulator.” He acknowledged that the game's development has taken a significant amount of time, but there are different approaches to achieving this goal. Howard emphasized that retirement is still a long way off for him at 53 years old. He expressed his desire to continue making games indefinitely, citing the example of Shigeru Miyamoto, the 71-year-old creator of Mario and a legend at Nintendo.

Aside from his involvement with The Elder Scrolls VI and the upcoming Starfield, Howard is also serving as an executive producer for the new Indiana Jones game being developed by Machine Games.

While Howard's insights provide some tantalizing hints about the highly anticipated game, fans will have to wait for further details as Bethesda continues its work on The Elder Scrolls VI. As for Howard himself, it appears that retirement is not on the horizon anytime soon, as he remains deeply committed to creating immersive and innovative gaming experiences.
