The Elder Scrolls 6: It has been five years since Skyrim came out worldwide in 2011, and fans of the critically acclaimed The Elder Scrolls series are waiting impatiently for the release of the next title. While there still is no news confirming the commencement of the development of The Elder Scrolls 6, fans have the assurance from creators that the series will not come to a stop with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But while that makes the wait that much sweeter, it certainly does not mean that the game will be coming anytime soon.
However, despite officials from Bethesda pointing otherwise, speculation is rife that The Elder Scrolls 6 is indeed in development and the publisher is presently hard at work experimenting with several ideas. This probably derives from the fact that Bethesda usually pushes out new titles in the Elder Scrolls series every four to five years. This, according to many, automatically points towards the next game in the series landing sometime by 2019. Those keen enougheven spotted job listings pertaining to the next Elder Scrolls title posted on the internet earlier this year, giving rise to hopes that perhaps an announcement will be made at this year’s E3.But E3 2016 came and went, and so did every other major game shows in the world, and there were no announcements from the developer about the upcoming title.
But Peter Hines’s comment about making The Elder Scrolls 6 “eventually” is not being taken lightly by fans. Bethesda’s last major project, Fallout 4, released during the last quarter of 2015. If the developers are assumed to have delved into the making of The Elder Scrolls 6 immediately after that, then the game may well be underway. The job listing that appeared earlier this year also falls in line with this assumption.
Finally, many feel that The Elder Scrolls 6 will actually be a continuation of Skyrim itself. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of the highest grossing games of 2011, and the developers have since released a number of additional content to keep fans satisfied. Bethesda built the open world game on a new engine created specifically for Skyrim, and despite some initial technical issues, Skyrim was extremely well received by fans and critics. This gives rise to theories that we may be looking at the possibility of The Elder Scrolls 6 being located in Skyrim itself and be a follow up to the last game. However, we are sure the TES world has a lot of locations that Bethesda could set the upcoming title in.
UPDATE:One of the most speculated games till date The Elder Scrolls is in the midst of developments where its creators/developers Bethesda Softworks are asking for more time for the final release. Todd Howard made revelations regarding The Elders Scrolls 6 as it would be something grand in terms of quality. The dedication put into the game by the whole team is worth each penny. Set in the map of Argonia, the latest game will possess an advanced artificial intelligence eventually having an ability to speak. Perhaps the new technology is yet to come to an existence. However, in TES 5, the Argonians were not given much attention which will fill the gap appropriately in the upcoming game of The Elder Scrolls 6.
