'Elder Scrolls 6' Rumored Release Date, Next Location: What To Expect From Bethesda's Future Hit Game
With some rumors that Bethesda might announce the "Elder Scrolls 6" on E3 last June 2016, fans of the series have been anticipating when the game is scheduled to be released.
In one of our articles, Bethesda confirmed that "Elder Scrolls 6" is a thing, but it is currently not yet under development. They have to at least launch two "big games" first to consider the release date.
In a post by Frag Hero, some people involved with Bethesda hinted of what the fans could expect of with regards to the possible release date. Here as what Howard (a video game designer from Bethesda) said in the following in an E3 live interview:
"It's good in these moments to tell our fans, 'Yes, of course we are [making The Elder Scrolls 6]. 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."
"I could sit here and explain the game to you, and you would say, 'That sounds like you don't even have the technology-how long is that going to take?"
In a certain tweet, Pete Hines, the Vice President and PR of Marketing at Bethesda, jokes about the possible release date for "Elder Scrolls 6." It says "I often kid Todd that release date for TES 6 will be 22/22/22. Our robot overlords will change our calendar system by the time it comes out." which supports what Howard said that the release is still a very long way off.
Next possible location
In a post by Digital Spy, it was speculated that the featured place of "The Elder Scrolls 6" would be Argonia. How can they say that? Well as Digital spy said, consult the The Elder Scrolls: Arena map and you'll see that Valenwood, Elsweyr and Black Marsh (aka Argonia) are the spots Bethesda hasn't mined yet. So with that will most likely see a lot of swamps within the game, in theory of course.
New game engine
One of the things fans are anticipating with the new "The Elder Scrolls" game is the introduction or usage of a new game engine. In the same post by Digital Spy, they said that if you look at Bethesda's form in the past, we're due for a new game engine.
This could mean a breakthrough if ever, since the game engine is the core of the game itself. It could change how graphics are presented and how the logic will affect the gameplay.
Until Bethesda confirms that they are active on making "The Elder Scrolls 6," we can only make do with playing "The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition" for now. Stay tuned for more news on "The Elder Scrolls 6."
