Jeremy Soule, the composer behind Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, has confirmed via Facebook that he is not currently involved with the development of TESVI.
As so many of my fans have asked… While I’ve not said much about this out of courtesy to Bethesda, I would never turn my back on TES, and I believe that my involvement would hinge on a creative decision on their part and where they want to take the franchise. To confirm, I am currently not involved with TES VI.
There is still a long time before The Elder Scrolls VI will see the light of the day. It is entirely possible that the game is currently at such an early stage of development that the team has not thought of contacting a composer just yet.
There is still Starfield waiting on ahead: a brand new sci-fi RPG IP for Bethesda.
As Bethesda have said, TES VI is still a long ways out. My non-involvement at this stage isn’t necessarily an indicator of anything foreboding. But, whatever happens, it’s been a privilege for me to have made music for you with this series for all of these years! It’s been a joy to create these musical emotions and custom fit them into the world of The Elder Scrolls. I’m proud of the work that I’ve done and of all the artists who have made their own beautiful variations of my work such as Malukah. And most of all, I’m honored to have seen how this music has served in ways I could never have imagined. The heartfelt stories of this music accompanying people in hospitals, weddings and even funerals, as well as the stories of how people reached to this music in times of depression or anxiety… All of this is humbling for me. Thank you and Wind Guide You!
