'The Elder Scrolls 6' release date delayed due to supposed 'Skyrim' remaster development


Since the release of the “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” in 2011, fans have been itching for the release of the franchise’s next installment. As the gaming community waits for further announcements, specifically on whether there will be new details in the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), which takes place from June 14 to 16, there have been rumors saying that instead of getting “The Elder Scrolls VI,” a remastered version for “Skyrim” is on the works.

According to a fan in an online discussion, if the developer Bethesda has decided to push through in making a remastered version of the popular game, it will really take a lot of time and effort. If ever the remastered version will be released, it may be on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and it will have smoother graphics.

Based on the comment of the fan, Metro replied, “That’s exactly what we thought, which is why we largely dismissed the rumors when we first heard them. There’s still no proof it’s real, but if it is we guess there must be enough remasters nowadays that making them has become its own mini-industry.”

A remastered version does not seem far off, and it has already been reported that “The Elder Scrolls VI” may actually be released on 2019. Furthermore, considering that the “The Elder Scrolls: Online” was just released, Bethesda may not want to overshadow it with a new sequel being released immediately.

On the other hand, there are speculations that Bethesda may still be focusing on one of their popular video game titles, “Fallout 4,” particularly with the additional post-release content. The Far Harbor downloadable content was just launched and a new expansion pack is rumored for release.

While waiting for news, fans can enjoy the new DLC pack that is about come out for “The Elder Scrolls: Online” entitled “Dark Brotherhood” on June 14, 2016. Also, fans of the franchise may just have to hope that Bethesda will have good news on the follow up of “The Elder Scrolls V” during E3 2016.
