Grand Theft Auto 6 May Beat The Elder Scrolls 6 to The Punch



Grand Theft Auto 6 and The Elder Scrolls 6 are two of the most highly anticipated games expected to be released in this decade. Both games are part of popular and acclaimed franchises, but have had significant gaps between their main releases. However, it seems that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released before The Elder Scrolls 6.

Currently, there is no trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6. On the other hand, The Elder Scrolls 6’s announcement trailer recently celebrated its five-year anniversary without any new material released. It’s unclear when additional announcements will be made or when either game will be released.

Despite being different types of games, both franchises share many similarities. They are both open-world games that have sold incredibly well. Grand Theft Auto 5 is the second best-selling video game of all time, and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has sold over sixty million copies worldwide. Both games were released in the early 2010s and received critical acclaim and fanfare.

Unfortunately, both games have been released multiple times across different video game console generations since their original release. This has caused some gamers to view them as a joke. However, it’s worth noting that both developers have been working on other projects between the releases.

Bethesda has been working on Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and its big space game, Starfield, since the release of The Elder Scrolls 5. Rockstar Games, on the other hand, has released Red Dead Redemption 2, Bully remaster, and Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition. The developer has also spent much of its resources on Grand Theft Auto Online, which has had numerous updates since its release.

Currently, neither game has an official release date or any official gameplay footage. Xbox CEO Phill Spencer recently stated that The Elder Scrolls 6 is at least six years away from release. In contrast, leaks for Grand Theft Auto 6 suggest that it is further in development and may be released in 2025.

While it’s impossible to say for certain which game will be released first, all signs point to Grand Theft Auto 6 being released before The Elder Scrolls 6. However, delays can happen, and Bethesda could always bump up its production schedule. For now, fans eagerly anticipate the release of these two highly anticipated games.

Grand Theft Auto 6 and The Elder Scrolls 6 are easily among the most anticipated upcoming games expected to be released this decade. Both are part of some of the most acclaimed and beloved franchises of all time and yet have had very large gaps between their main releases. Now it appears as if Grand Theft Auto 6 is going to beat Elder Scrolls 6 to the punch.



As of now, Grand Theft Auto 6 has yet to release a trailer. On the other hand, the announcement trailer for The Elder Scrolls 6 recently celebrated its five-year birthday and has yet to release any new material. With both games, it’s not entirely clear when additional announcements will be made nor when either game will be released. The way things are going, however, it now seems that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released well before The Elder Scrolls 6.

While they’re completely different types of games, the franchises share a number of odd similarities. They’re both mega-popular open-world franchises that always sell incredibly well. Grand Theft Auto 5 is generally listed as the second best-selling video game of all time and Bethesda recently revealed that The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has sold over sixty million copies worldwide. Both of the previous installments were released in the early 2010s to massive critical praise and fanfare. Unfortunately, both Grand Theft Auto 5 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim have overstayed their welcome.

Since both games were released, both games have been made available across three separate video game console generation cycles. GTA 5 was made available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2022 and Skyrim was re-released on the Nintendo Switch that same year. This has unfortunately turned both games into something of a joke among gamers regarding how many times they were released. It is worth noting, however, that in between the releases both developers were working on other projects.

The Various Projects of Rockstar Games and Bethesda Game Studios

Since the release of The Elder Scrolls 5Bethesda has been keeping itself occupied with other projects. In 2015, it released Fallout 4 nearly seven years after its predecessor, Fallout 3. The developer then went to work on Fallout 76 which remains a controversial game to this day. The developer then shifted the majority of its attention to its big space game, Starfield. This, of course, does not include all the DLC and other updates that were released for Bethesda’s various properties. On Rockstar Games’ front, however, things have been a bit lighter.

Following the development of Grand Theft Auto 5Rockstar has only released one major game. That game was Red Dead Redemption 2 which was likewise a big seller. Accompanying the game was an online mode that sadly did not get as much attention as fans wanted. A remaster of Bully was also released as was the infamous Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition. What really had Rockstar Games’ attention, however, was Grand Theft Auto Online.

With the help of the in-game purchases from that mode, GTA has become one of the highest-grossing franchises in the game industry, and so the developer has spent much of its time and resources in that mode. Since its release, the mode has had dozens of updates that give players a seemingly endless amount of content to enjoy. The most recent update was the Grand Theft Auto Online San Andreas Mercenaries which launched earlier this month but may be the last major update for the game. All of this helps explain why there has been such a big gap between the new release dates for both franchises’ sixth installments.

Currently, neither game has an official release date nor has either released any official gameplay footage. There have been hints as to when they may come out. For the next Bethesda game, sadly, gamers will have to wait a while. Recently, Xbox CEO Phill Spencer stated that The Elder Scrolls 6 was at least six years away from release. That means that between the release of the game’s first trailer and the minimum release date, eleven years will have gone by before gamers can get their hands on it. With Grand Theft Auto 6, however, fans will not likely have to wait nearly as long.

Last year, Grand Theft Auto 6 was the subject of several high-profile leaks. Part of the leaks was early gameplay footage that gave gamers their first look at one of the game’s main characters. Story details were also released, revealing a story about a brother and sister pair of protagonists, with one who may be a DEA agent. At another point, the release window of Grand Theft Auto 6 was also leaked, pointing to a 2025 release year which many see as a plausible date. If true, it is very possible that the game will launch a full four years before The Elder Scrolls 6.

It’s impossible to say with absolute certainty which of the two games will be released first. However, all the leaks for Grand Theft Auto 6 seem to indicate that it is far further in development than The Elder Scrolls 6. Delays do happen and Bethesda could always bump up its production schedule on its project, but all of that seems rather unlikely. For the time being, it appears as if Grand Theft Auto 6 is going to beat Elder Scrolls 6 to the punch.

Grand Theft Auto 6 is in development.
