Now that it’s 2017, nothing much had changed about the most-awaited Elder Scrolls 6. That is, up to this day, there is still no confirmation about the development status of this action-role playing video game.

It can be remembered last year that Bethesda made a claim that the open world game is nowhere in the development stage and this made spectators believe that we will not be seeing one in the next coming years.

Then there was the 2016 E3 and fans were surprised with the unveiling of Fallout 4 VR. A teaser was showcased at the event and critics said that this somehow has an influence on the development of Elder Scrolls 6. The developer expressed the possibility of using it as a production title. And while Virtual Reality technology is slowly entering the mainstream, it will take at least two years before gamers can enjoy Fallout 4 using a VR headset.

But what really is the reason behind the long delay of the next game installment?

One theory is Bethesda’s concentration on the development of Fallout 4 VR. It is believed that the team is focused on working on the virtual reality game with the announcement of the game being brought to the Vive VR system as early as June last year.

But what confuses the gaming community is the recent tweet from Pete Hines of Bethesda about Fallout 4. He said that there is not much movement to see in 2017 in relation to the game. That said, they might now be working on Elder Scrolls 6, given that there are only two franchises under Bethesda at the moment.

Another speculation is that Bethesda is releasing a tad of news about Elder Scrolls 6 which again, made people think that the game is in the works. But it turned out to be a disappointment since the camp refuses to talk about any development or share bits of information not unless the game is about to be released.

Impatient fans are starting to think that the developer is keeping secrets about the action RPG and becomes frustrating to the public. Hines was even honest in admitting that they confirmed Elder Scrolls to keep the people from asking about it and its development status.

He even added that the team is concentrating on the creative process and does not plan to release teasers just to show off the game. Perhaps, this is why until now, nothing is there about Elder Scrolls 6 except for bits and pieces of announcements and yet without any confirmation.

With the Skyrim selling more than 22.7 million copies, there is no doubt that there should be a sixth installment. Others are even analyzing that all the announcements, no matter how confusing, are all about building a hype to increase the clamor of gaming fans.

Meanwhile, there are also rumors that the developer intends to incorporate artificial intelligence in the game. If this is true then fans might as well believe that something huge is coming out in the future, albeit, Elder Scrolls 6 is not coming out anytime soon.
