Rumor has it that Bethesda would have a special announcement about one of its most-awaited titles, The Elder Scrolls 6, come June at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016. But there is also a huge possibility that the game developer doesn’t have anything for fans during the event.
We’re all hoping for a teaser,but we might just end up seeing possibilities with no hope of seeing something close to reality any time soon. Here’s what we know so far based on rumors and speculations circulating in the gamesphere.
- Latest reports suggest that The Elder Scrolls 6 could be released in 2017, but there are also speculations that it is going to be launched as early as this year.
- A report from Game N Guide gives fans hope and dash it just as quickly. A possible release date aligns with 2017, but another possibility would be a delay of a span of 2 years, with a tentative release schedule in 2019. So which is it really?
- During E3, fans are likely to catch a glimpse of the latest addition to The Elder Scrolls franchise. Whether this will be realized or not remains a big question until E3 happens.
- The Elder Scrolls 6 is reported to be a continuation of Skyrim, the game’s predecessor, which was released last 2012. This brings up more speculations about the game being called Skyrim 2.
- There are rumors that Bethesda will move on to a new chapter that may be titled “Redguard” and “Argonia”. If this is the case, the 2019 release date is closer to the truth, what with Bethesda’s habit of releasing new entry of a franchise every 4 years.
We hope The Elder Scrolls 6 won’t be a case of “much ado about nothing”, with the title losing its appeal due to a very long delay. Well, fans can just settle with thinking about the possibilities in the meantime.
Why is the next title leaning towards Argonia?
Well, rumors have references to the King of Argonia, which could mean that the next central governing body would be the Argonian Royal Court. Argonia, also known as the Black Marsh, is one of the 9 Provinces of Tamriel, home of reptilian natives aptly named Argonians.
Shortly after the release of Skyrim in 2011, Argnonia was conceptualized, although work on it did not begin until the 2014 release of The Elder Scrolls: Online. This further fueled speculations that Argonia is the next chapter. The Elder Scrolls VI: Argonia does sound good, doesn’t it?
But…new leaked details suggest Skyrim 2 is an even bigger possibility for the next chapter.
