Fans of the Elder Scrolls usually have two major questions in mind: “When will we see TES 6?” and “Where would TES 6 be based?”

The answer to the first question seems to be “Not soon”. Bethesda Game Studios, the developer of the game, has not made any official announcement about the release of The Elder Scrolls 6 and seems to be focused on its other titles, such as Fallout 4. Bethesda also has a tradition of releasing TES titles every four years so, since the last installment (The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited) was released on 2015, we can expect to see TES 6 in 2019 or 2020.

The answer to the second question, though, seems to be vague. Bethesda VP for PR and marketing Pete Hines mentioned “Skyrim 2” in an interview with The Telegraph, leading people to wonder if The Elder Scrolls 6 will be based in the fictional province of Skyrim.

For those who are not familiar with the game, The Elder Scrolls is set in the world of Nirn. Specifically, the storyline centers in the continent of Tamriel, which is divided into nine provinces, one of which is Skyrim. The other provinces are called Black Marsh, Cyrodiil, Elsweyr, Hammerfell, High Rock, Morrowind, Summerset Isle, and Valenwood.

According to tech experts, it makes sense for Bethesda to use a location that has not been a major part in the past installments. If this logic is used, Skyrim and Morrowind will be taken out of the game since they have already been used extensively in the past TES games.

There is also strong evidence that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be based in Black Marsh. As reported by NSEAVOICE, Bethesda has filed a patent for the word “Argonia”. Fans of TES will recognize that Argonia is the name of the species of reptile-like creatures that live in the Black Marsh area, leading many people to theorize that this province would be the setting of TES 6.

Of course, it’s also possible that the latest installment would feature the Argonians but would be set elsewhere in Tamriel. In this vein, it’s highly possible that other places in the continent would be the location of TES 6. Two of the possible locations are Elsweyr and Valenwood, although other provinces may also make the cut.

Where do you think The Elder Scrolls 6 would be based? Are you excited to get your hands on this game?
