The next game in The Elder Scrolls franchise that everyone is expecting to hear about is The Elder Scrolls 6. Sure, we just got a little TES on our mobile phones – The Elder Scrolls: Blades, but we’re all waiting for the sixth game in the series that will come out… eventually.
Right now, there is no official news about the game, but remember that lawsuit over the name Redfall? The one where everyone thought it would be the subtitle and hint the location of the game?
It seems that the game will be based in Hammerfell, and here is why it would make sense.
“The Elder Scrolls VI: Hammerfell”
When Bethesda celebrated the 25th anniversary, they revealed some footage of the games they released in the past, and thanks to this video, we realized that the developer has begun working on The Elder Scrolls 6 and that the location will be Hammerfell, probably focusing on the Red Guards.
You all saw the video and noticed a desert-like landscape, and it can only be Hammerfell, from where the Red Guards appear in Skyrim (which also got featured in the video). Now, connecting the previous “Redfall” issue with Red Guards and Hammerfell, it makes sense. If the lawsuit is not in favor for Bethesda and they cannot use the name Redfall, the next best choice would be Hammerfell, since it will be the location name, just like in Skyrim.
Also, these old images support the theory:
As for an official release date, there isn’t one. Unfortunately, the Elder Scrolls 6 will not make an appearance at E3, but since the production on the game slowly began in 2018, it The Elder Scrolls 6 (Hammerfell?) might be launched by the end of 2020, hopefully before the holidays.
Speculations aside, we all know the NPC that will make it to the next game: the awesome player known as “Skyrim Grandma,” Shirley Curry! Thanks to the petition signed by thousands of people, she will be immortalized in TES6!
