The Elder Scrolls 6 is being worked on again after trademark lawsuit delayed it

The Elder Scrolls 6 has been apparently involved in some sort of lawsuit regarding a trademark. This lawsuit was allegedly postponing the built of the game. However, the issues have now been solved, which means that the development of the next Elder Scrolls is continuing as expected.

The lawsuit issue came around because of a copyright problem between Bethesda, the publisher behind The Elder Scrolls and an author of a book series. It has to do with the book series by the name of ‘Redfall’ and the game’s next title which is the same.

This lawsuit could have taken years to resolve in court, and it would have meant that the gaming studio might have been strained to completely drop the title of Redfall in favor of another one. They could have also worked something out, and apparently, that is what they did.

Zenimax, the mother company released a statement which said that they and the book store have amicably solved the trademark issue concerning the Redfall trademark.

According to a report by Critical Hit.net, the issue was most likely cleared with some sort of pay off to license the trademark for use in The Elder Scrolls title.

More details and information will be disclosed during the E3 1029 event, which starts on June the 11th.

Regarding the release period of the next Elder Scrolls game, the majority of fans and players seem to believe that the title will launch sometime before the grand release of the next generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft. This means a waiting of at least a few years.

For now, you can play The Elder Scrolls Online and get used with Hammerfell, the home of Redguard.

As it is widely known, Bethesda registers a new trademark for every title in its game series, such as Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. Many people were excited to read about the trademark by the name of Redfall, unaware of the fact that it is a book series name before becoming a probable name for the next The Elder Scrolls title.
