UESPWiki:News/The Wait Continues
 The Wait Continues — August 15th, 2009
While giving a speech on game development at Quakecon, Todd Howard did a brief question and answer session. After being asked a question regarding the future of the Elder Scrolls series, Howard said that there are no current plans for "Elder Scrolls 5" according to Big Download. Of course, the 'current' part of the article is not in quotes, and so far the UESP staff hasn't found a direct quote of Howard — this could just mean they aren't ready to announce it, and that people are reading far too much into Howard's words.
