"The Elder Scrolls 6" -- which some gamers believed to be "Skyrim 2" -- has been one of the most highly anticipated games this year. The franchise introduced a kind of gaming that had fans and gamers alike struck in its greatness. However, the sixth installment is far from being a reality -- many predict that it will arrive not until 2019.
According to CrossMap, Bethesda Softworks Vice President of PR and Marketing Pete Hine debunked the claims regarding the "The Elder Scrolls 6" release date. Contrary to popular belief, the titular action role-playing video game will not be unveiled anytime this year.
Sure, Hine did say that "The Elder Scrolls 6" will happen. However, when talking about the actual release date, he was instead talking about "Skyrim 2." Hence, it is safe to say that all the speculations pertaining to the game being based on Oblivion or Morrowind are not true.
It is also worth noting that Bethesda is currently busy working with the newly released action RPG "Fallout 4," along with its impending DLC releases. If this is the case, fans are likely to receive updates and whatnots by 2017. And with the fact that Bethesda is known for releasing new "Elder Scrolls" every four years, a possible 2019 "The Elder Scrolls 6" release date is likely to happen.
Nonetheless, whether or not "The Elder Scrolls 6" happens, what should gamers expect from it? There are those who say that it will either be titled "Argonia" or "Reedwood." Despite having lots of talks about it, one thing is for sure, though -- the official title will not be happening in the next days or months to come.
NeuroGadget, on the other hand, cites that the said game might introduce new locations and/or territories, giving gamers new opportunities to discover the fascinating realm of "The Elder Scrolls." But among these locations, Hammerfell seems to be the most interesting one.
"The Elder Scrolls 6" is believed to give gamers the chance to deal with the so-called Aldemeri Dominion, something that did not happen in "Skyrim" (although gamers were able to experience the power of the said Dominion in the Tamriel continent).
While these rumors are interesting to note, they should be taken as such. And now, the waiting game continues.
