As E3 approaches the hype train for the unannounced The Elder Scrolls game has been rapidly increasing in speed; there is no telling if the game will actually be announced at E3 but fans are expecting something big from Bethesda. After E3 2015, Bethesda commented that they would not attend E3 each year, they would only attend if they had anything worth showing and last year Fallout 4 was their main event. Their possible line-up for E3 2016 is uncertain but fans are hoping the next Elder Scrolls game will be revealed.

It was reported by NSEA that information regarind the name of the next game has been leaked. According to that leak, Bethesda has patented the name “Argonia” which is related to the name of one of the races in The Elder Scrolls; Argonians are the reptilian race that come from the province of Black Marsh, the province is also known as “Argonia”.

Previously, Black Marsh was looked at as being a good candidate for the location of the next game; Valewood and Elsweyr were also looked at by fans as being good potential locations where the stoty of the Thalmor could be continued. Fans have suspected those locations as they have not yet been explored or used in any of the games.

In the past, Bethesda takes four years to create a new game for The Elder Scrolls series; the last game was released in 2011 which would make 2016 the next release year according to their previous timeline. However, Bethesda Game Studio is growing their team and are looking for people with RPG experience to fill various job roles; so it would appear that Bethesda is only just starting the project now.

Release date estimates for The Elder Scrolls 6 are spread from 2016 until 2020 though the majority of rumours are based around 2019. Hopefully more information about the game will be revealed at E3 2016 in June; the only thing we know for sure right now is that Bethesda is working on a game related to Argonia and that they are adding more workers to their team.
