Developer and Publisher Bethesda might be gearing up for the development of Elder Scroll 6. the new job listing can be currently found on Zenimax who is the parent company of Bethesda. the listing states that the company is hiring Build/Tools Engineer for the team to create an AAA game.
Below is the full description from Zenimax
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.
Of course, it does not say that it is for Elder Scroll 6 but as the description states that it’s hiring for the development of an AAA game so it most probably for the next Elder game or an entirely new game.
Why Elder Scroll?
As reported by Forbes the Director of Elder Scroll series, Todd Howard said at E3 2017 that the Elder Scroll 6 is very low on the to-do list and its development has not even begun yet.
Further during E3 2017 Pete Hines global VP of PR and Marketing from Bethesda in an interview said that there are two more titles the studio is working on and after finishing them it probably may start Elder Scroll 6. the two titles Hines talk about are most probably The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.

The most recent game which was released in 2017 is Prey and the upcoming games are The Evil Within 2 scheduled to release on 13 October 2017, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus scheduled to release on 27 October 2017 and Quake Champions which will release somewhere in 2017.
All the above games are already in development and are coming close to release date. so the job listing can be for the next game which is most probably for Elder Scroll 6.
