On June 10th, Bethesda released a teaser for their upcoming continuation of the Elder Scrolls franchise, Elder Scrolls 6. Though Bethesda has been leaving most fans in the dark, we were lucky enough to receive a sneak peek of the official trailer posted on Twitter. Despite the mysterious trailer, with little to no information on the upcoming long-desired continuation to Skyrim: Elder Scrolls, fans did manage to estimate the location of the next game by using little details such as islands, mountains or any given distinctive landscape found within Tamriel. Some say the location of this long wanted game will be held in Hammerfell.
Bethesda’s most known franchise, Elder Scrolls has not yet released a decent game since Skyrim: Elder Scrolls. Their most recent games from this franchise include; Skyrim: Elder Scrolls (2011), Elder Scrolls Online (2014) and The Elder Scrolls: Legends CCG (Mobile) (2017). To that note, all console/pc games have been released over 5 years ago. Although Bethesda hasn’t produced a successful game, Skyrim is still viewed as one of the most successful games of all time. It has been rated by IGN as a 9.5/10 and has been given a 9.6/10 by Metacritic making it one of the highest scored games by these two reliable sources. Since this success, Bethesda has been having issues with obtaining a new game with positive or outstanding reviews. With the game Fallout76 being a major upset. It is now Bethesda’s move to bring out a new game which will sweep their gamers back to their seat.
To continue, Bethesda will most likely boost the production time of Elder Scrolls to supposedly launch Elder Scrolls 6 by the end of 2019, which by the looks of it, and the amount of news we received since the trailer, seems quite impossible. New estimations believe that as of right now, with the lack of information on the game shared for all to see, this wanted game will only be released by the earliest end of 2020.
The only information given about Elder Scrolls 6 has only been estimated by fellow gamers, which believe that the game will be set in a time of a Deadly Plague in Hammerfell.
With the success of the franchise, promises, and hype given by Bethesda, Elder Scroll 6 is said to be an amazing game in the making. Hopefully, it’s success will be as great, or greater than Skyrim.
Only high hopes for the continuation of such a successful series! As long as the game is great, I for one will be glad to wait the time for this upcoming masterpiece. Will Bethesda earn their game of the year award with this upcoming game? That is for you to find out!
