The Elder Scrolls 6 is the next installment in the popular Elder Scrolls franchise. Even though the game is still far from launching, rumors keep on coming out on the Internet. That brings us to the news on The Elder Scrolls 6 release date and storyline.
First of all, The Elder Scrolls 6 has to come with graphics, mechanics, and gameplay that fit the modern-era RPG style. Besides, it has to boast an impressive storyline. That would be the only way Bethesda can make-up to the fans after The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim received many critics due to the mediocre storyline.
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim couldn’t compete with the excellent narrative of other RPG titles like Dragon Age and The Witcher 3. While we have nothing official on the storyline of The Elder Scrolls 6, many rumors appeared on forums, suggesting to something not exciting at all.
The Elder Scrolls 6 Storyline Rumors
According to some rumors and leaks, The Elder Scrolls 6 storyline would revolve around a plague or something like that. The stories emerged because Bethesda tried to trademark “Redfall” in 2018. The fans out there should remember the Daedric Prince called Peryite who infects people with a disease that makes their skin red.
If that’s accurate, then Bethesda might blow it with the storyline of The Elder Scrolls 6 or, at least, will face a challenging task to make the story impressive. And that’s because Peryite is one of the weakest princes in the Elder Scrolls universe. Well, accordingly, we might be facing a very weak antagonist in The Elder Scrolls 6.
The Elder Scrolls 6 Release Date News
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim was a hit among the RPG games, and it received positive critics from both fans and game communities. Undoubtedly, Bethesda wants to take its time with The Elder Scrolls 6 to make it at least as relevant as Skyrim was. Besides, Todd Howard said that such an excellent game needs ten years of development.
Accordingly, we might not see The Elder Scrolls 6 any time soon. The Elder Scrolls 6 would come out in 2024 or 2025, not considering possible delays.
