New Bethesda Job Listing Rumored To Be For The Elder Scrolls 6
(Last Updated On: July 31, 2017)

A new job listing has appeared on Bethesda Game Studios parent company’s official website, which can be found on Zenimax job listings and career section. The new job listing of a Build/Tools Engineer is currently rumored to be tied with The Elder Scrolls 6 due to the job being associated with a triple-A title by Bethesda.

Notice: Please do take this information with a grain of salt seeing that there is no direct indication that this very job is linked to The Elder Scrolls 6. However, due to a long running rumor by fans of the series, many people believe that the upcoming triple-A title by Bethesda is the Elder Scrolls 6 and that this new job listing is hinting at the RPG’s development.

According to publication site Blastingnews, it is believed the latest job listing that Bethesda has up on Zenimax’s job listing section showing interest in a Build/Tools Engineer is linked to The Elder Scrolls 6. You can read what the job listing has to say and whether it seems like it is related to the upcoming Elder Scrolls title:

“Bethesda Game Studios is seeking a qualified Build/Tools Engineer for our team. The successful candidate will have knowledge of and experience in the design, implementation and continuing support of cross platform build systems, continuous integration build systems, automated testing, automated performance measurement and trending, profiling tools, patching systems, asset dependency and packaging systems, multiple branched environments, and source control integration. The ideal candidate will have the opportunity to work on game code/systems to support our initiatives to create a AAA development environment.”

Fans who follow every move of the publisher and developer over the ongoing fantasy RPG series, point to the new job to be correlated with The Elder Scrolls 6. However, something worth keeping in mind is that even if this job listing is for the upcoming Elder Scrolls game, it is going to be a long ways before gamers can get their hands on the title.

In addition to the above, Bethesda Game Creator Todd Howard had said during E3 2016 that The Elder Scrolls 6 is a long way off from being released, as publicized by Forbes. The publication site revealed that Howard said the sixth game is “relatively low on Bethesda’s to-do list and not even in development officially at this point.”

Lastly, publication site Segmentnext noted that Pete Hines confirmed that two big projects are underway and when they’re released that’s when The Elder Scrolls 6 will go into development. Well, the two big projects are noted to be Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus and Quake Champions, the former is to release on October 27th and the latter is slated to release this year (2017).

What is a fact at this moment is that Bethesda is expanding its pool of developers so that work on the next triple-A or major title will have enough heads to tackle whatever comes its way. If you want more information on the job listing you can visit jobs.zenimax.com.

    Just release Starfield already. Good grief, I can still taste that Bethesda E3. Sour as shit.

    Feed me sweet lies Todd, FEED ME MOAR FEED ME MOAR!!!!!!

    This is an “infrastructure” position, meaning that no matter what you’re developing you need one of these guys. It’s so fundamental that I would bet money this posting is a replacement for someone who left rather than an indicator that they’re staffing up for a new game.

  • s_fnx

    Probably won’t be out until at least 2020.

    They will milk Skyrim to Oblivion.

    • Pratim Gupta

      They just released Fallout 4. give it some time

      • s_fnx

        “just released”? You mean 2 years ago?

        • Pratim Gupta

          Do you realize how long does it take to make a full version of a game with DLC’s, i work in Video Game industry as a designer, its harrowing and takes a very long time, art rejected, style not liked, rewriting the script, whooo boy, just pray to your gods that you didn’t chose this path

          • s_fnx

            Of course I know about that. But do you also realize Skyrim is 6 years old and they never took that long of a break between TES titles. They can’t keep re-releasing Skyrim forever.

          • Pratim Gupta

            Original Doom was created in 1993, it has been ported over to several consoles, Atari Jagaur,Sega 32X, SNES, PS1. you name it. it has been the most milked game of all time but people enjoyed it

            If you want something greater than Skyrim, surpass everything, then wait.

    TES6? Yes this is what I have been waiting for a new barely working game from bethesda I won’t make a mistake of preordering this time

      If it’s anything like Skyrim, it won’t be worth playing until the mods are plentiful anyways.

  • ThyPancakeConsumed

    Better be good. Better be like oblivion.

    Meh. That game has been in develoment for at least 3 years. We have proof that Nuka-Cola World was in production 4 1/2 years before it was released, and that was just an expansion. TES6 is probably going to be a 7-year project.

    That’s not to say they’re not hiring for a position that will be associated with TES6. Just that the idea that they’re just now “starting development” because they’re hiring is kind’a naive. They just don’t want to have to deal with the tidal wave of attention and questions about the development until they absolutely have to. You’d do the same thing.
