E3 2018: 'The Elder Scrolls VI' And 'Starfield' Confirmed While 'Skyrim' For Alexa Turns Out To Be Real

Bethesda Softworks showcased a bevy of games during the Bethesda E3 Showcase Sunday evening. Fallout 76 is what had many fans tuning into the live broadcast, but Game Director Todd Howard had a few more surprises up his sleeve including confirmation of future games like Starfield, The Elder Scrolls VI, and a very special edition of Skyrim for the Amazon Alexa.

A Starfield patent was filed by Bethesda five years ago, which put the title on the radar of video game enthusiasts. The studio has a habit of not announcing or showing games until they are just a few months from release, so the amount of interest led to a very short teaser trailer that creates more questions than answers.

A 2019 release seems likely.

The camera sweeps over terrain similar to the Scottish Highlands next to a coast in The Elder Scrolls VI teaser trailer. This had led to speculation and debate in the game's community that the setting could be Hammerfall, Akavir, or High Rock in the land of Tamriel.

Unfortunately, the earliest fans should expect this is 2020 as Starfield appears to be the priority to release first.

However, it was more than just a joke. Skyrim Very Special Edition for Alexa appeared on the Amazon store early Monday morning. The game is only available in the United States, unfortunately, but is fully voice-controlled for those daring to venture into battle.

The mobile Elder Scrolls title will be released this fall for Android and iOS devices.
