Despite comments from Todd Howard back at E3 earlier this month, it doesn’t sound like Bethesda is currently working on a new Elder Scrolls game.
Responding to a question on Twitter on whether other games will take resources away from an Elder Scrolls 6, Bethesda’s Vice President Pete Hines said they weren’t making it right now:
@HotShame0 we aren't working on TES6 at the moment

This could be why they’re putting so much focus on Skyrim: SE. They recently said they want to make the Special Edition of Skyrim as “next gen” as possible, likely because it’s going to need to tide fans over for several years until The Elder Scrolls 6 is finally made.
