'The Elder Scrolls 6' release date: Rumors resurface about supposed E3 announcement


For quite a while now, “The Elder Scrolls 6” has become the subject of many rumors regarding the production and eventual release of the title. Despite this, Bethesda has kept their quiet and is not giving anything away. With the upcoming E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) 2016, latest reports suggest that fans will finally get a word about the role-playing game.

Fans of the “The Elder Scrolls” franchise have already been clamoring for the supposed follow-up game and some of them are hoping that this time, Bethesda will finally answer to their pleas. Shall this be the case, the E3 stage will be the perfect venue to finally announce the aforementioned game as not will only draw more interests, but it will also be good marketing for their other product presentations.

Other reports on the other hand that “The Elder Scrolls 6” may not show up at this year’s E3 as it is tipped to drop not earlier than 2019. Given that much time between now and 2019, Bethesda may opt to keep everything under wraps as of now before they do the big reveal.

Bethesda’s vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines has previously stated that instead of trying to release numerous titles, they are more lenient towards a smaller scaled quality work.

That’s just not how we view it. We’re not the sort of publisher that focusses on ‘what’s our 25 titles for 2015’,” flatly said. “We do smaller stuff, we don’t publish to scale, we try to publish to quality. Make sure everything we do is noteworthy. Our approach to that hasn’t differed. Here and there we might change our approach to how it’s presented but we’ve still stuck to who we are.”

Given this, it may only mean that Bethesda is taking its time with “The Elder Scrolls 6,” especially as the franchise is the developer’s most successful so far.

Worst case scenario for the gamers who are still keeping their hopes up regarding the title is that Bethesda may have just quietly canned the idea of a follow-up game. Nevertheless, until the company officially states the fate with regards to “The Elder Scrolls 6,” fans would have to continue to be on their toes for any announcement.
