If rumors are to be believed, there will be no The Elder Scrolls 6 this year and probably the next. While the The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition is still an enjoyable game, fans will forever be asking for more. However, they might have to wait for quite awhile. For the time being, The Elder Scrolls 6 is still an idea that has sprung from leaks about its development online. And with all the information out there, it can be hard to decipher which ones have basis. But what is known so far is that there will be a Skyrim sequel.
This was what Bethesda’s Todd Howard hinted when asked if the team was cooking up something. He confirmed that they are but it will not be in the near future.
“I think it’s good in these moments to tell our fans, ‘Yes, of course we are. It’s something we love.’ But it is – you know, I have to be careful what I say – it’s a very long way off.”
However, they are also busy with more important developments right now and The Elders Scroll 6 is just not the priority. They already have their hands full on two projects.
The series has been in existence for two decades and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has been the most successful game in the series, having sold 20 million copies. This is the reason behind the clamor for the next game.
Vice president of Bethesda, Pete Hines said that the publishers are the ones pushing for a sequel to Skyrim but he said that this is not how they see it. The executive also confirmed that there will be The Elder Scrolls 6 but they have not started working on it yet.
It can be remembered that it took four years for the team to release Skyrim after Oblivion. Based on this information, the next game should have been released by now, given that it was in 2011 when Skyrim was released.
Moreover, Howard and Hines have the same sentiments about being game developers. They said that they plan what they do and that they look at their projects long term. It is not that they will be releasing one game after the other. Besides, according to Hines, they need time and technology for this, two things they do not have as of the moment.
What is the location for The Elder Scrolls 6?
The location of the sequel is also a hanging question up to now. The previous games were set in different locations in the Tamriel world. The first release was located in High Rock and Hammerfell provinces while in 2002, it was in the island of Vvardenfell. Oblivion was in Cyrodil while Skyrim was in Skyrim.
Among the areas, three more are left: Valenwood, Elsweyr and Argonia or Black Marsh. Morrowind can also be considered since the mainland of the province was not featured before. But according to rumors, Argonia is considered the most likely choice, albeit nothing is confirmed yet.
