While Bethesda Softworks announced it is hosting a press conference E3 2019, Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard at PAX East 2019 announced The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield will not be shown during E3.

"That's just a little sneak peek at the technology that we've been building," said Howard." 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 TES6, 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."

Thanks GameSpot.

I doubt they have even started Elder Scrolls 6. Too busy remastering Skyrim for my Toaster.

They didn't have time to add enough glitches yet?

Yeah, these will be game of the year 2025 and 2026. Too early to show anything now.

...Because it will be at the PS5 reveal instead!

That's what I'm thinking, at least in regards to Starfield. Rumor is it will be a next-gen launch title for PS5 and Xbox Scarlett Holiday 2020. Since Scarlett is rumored for an E3 announce, they would likely show Starfield at Microsoft's E3 conference if MS has the marketing deal for Starfield. However, if Sony has the marketing deal, they will have to wait until Sony announces PS5 before they can show Starfield, since they can't spoil PS5's existence before Sony announces it.

Hope they'll actually use a new engine, though I've heard otherwise.

Starfield seems to be using Creation, TES 6 is supposedly using a new engine (they released a video recently where they revealed they are using photogrammetry for advanced graphics in TES 6).

I bet it will have 16 time's the detail.

Not surprising, they called Starfield a next-gen game when it was announced and it is rumored for a Holiday 2020 release, and they said TES 6 would release even later. Most likely they will show Starfield at E3 2020, 6 months before release, just like they showed Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 6 months before release.

So nothing to be excited for
