'The Elder Scrolls 6' release date updates: Bethesda has an opening for an Engine Programmer; VP Pete Hines says game won't be released anytime soon

(Facebook/ElderScrolls)Bethesda's Montreal Studio is looking for a new Engine Programmer.

When "The Elder Scrolls 6" will be released is one topic that is always being discussed by gamers. Unfortunately, it seems that video game fans would be waiting longer for the game to arrive, if it's ever released at all.

Aside from its release date, new features or changes to its gameplay have always been part of the rumor mill. The latest rumor teases that Bethesda Softworks would present the newest "The Elder Scrolls" title during this year's E3. The annual gaming event is slated to be held in Los Angeles from June 14 to 16.

While it's undoubtedly nice if the game developer would have something "Elder Scroll" related to give fans, the chances of that happening are low as Pete Hines, Bethesda's VP, already admitted in numerous interviews that the company won't be releasing "The Elder Scrolls 6" or even "Skyrim 2" anytime soon. As Hines explained to the Telegraph, the company is not the sort to focus on "what's our 25 titles for 2015."

"We do smaller stuff, we don't publish to scale, we try to publish to quality," Hines explained. "Make sure everything we do is noteworthy."

The company also doesn't have a tendency to split its teams or to work with thousands of game designers, engineers, or artists. This means that their core design team will still be focused on "Fallout 4," "The Elders Scrolls Online," and their corresponding DLCs for the foreseeable future.

However, a recent job listing hints that the company might be changing some things up. A new job listing revealed that the Bethesda Game Studio in Montreal, Canada has an opening for an Engine Programmer. The ideal person for the job will reportedly work with artists, lead engine programmers, and designers as they work toward implementing and optimizing the game's features.

Some fans have taken this as a positive sign that the company is looking to upgrade its systems, and in doing so will come up with bigger and better games.

However, as "The Elder Scrolls 6" release date goes, the theory is that the game will be released sometime in 2019, if Bethesda follows its usual schedule of releasing a new "TES" version every 4 years.
