I think you meant to suggest TES 6?

Aren't the "next gen" consoles launching in 2013-2014? I imagine FO4 will almost certainly be a next gen title. And as there is only one dev team at BGS, they can really only focus on one major project at a time.

They might have somebody work on concept art or broad strokes planning, but the majority of the team will still be finishing Skyrim DLC and transitioning to commence FO4 in time for release around 2013 or 2014.

Also not very likely the job posting is related to the MMO that Zenimax Online is working on. MMOs don't typically release on consoles, and more importantly, Zenimax Online is an entirely different division from Bethesda Game Studios.
