The Elder Scrolls 6 or Skyrim 2: Should It Release 5 Months After Reveal?

It worked for Fallout 4.

Posted By | On 31st, Jan. 2016 Under News


While Bethesda hasn’t officially announced a Skyrim 2 or an Elder Scrolls 6, there might be a really good reason for lack of news. Now that Fallout 4 is almost done and out (only DLC releases remaining), Bethesda has a need to bring another AAA game. Could their behavior last year be a clue as to how they will be behaving this year? It should be pointed out that the company denied that Fallout 4 was a reality right up until a few weeks before the game was actually slated to be announced.

The game ended up getting officially announced at E3 last year and was released in November. Could the company be planning on doing the same thing with Elder Scrolls 6 or Skyrim 2? Bethesda has said Fallout 4 was different from the way they normally handle these kinds of games but if this was the new norm the firm likely won’t let us know about that straight out. The company has said it doesn’t plan on developing small things, which seems to indicate that big titles are next on its slate.

There’s something to be said for having a small window between announcement and release date. The small period of time allows fans to get excited about the upcoming game without having to wait so long they move on and focus on another game. It would in fact, behoove the firm to look at smaller windows in order to generate interest and not have to answer a ton of different questions about the game.

This article is part of our weekly series on Bethesda’s next big entry into the world of The Elder Scrolls. Through this series we take a look at the possible new features that Bethesda can add into the next The Elder Scrolls game, based on what they implemented in the previous entries and player feedback.

    Or now? Yes, now!

    It would have to be Elder Scrolls 6 as Bethesda has never done a locale sequal. So take us somewhere new in Tamriel. And sure, release after reveal. I like the shorter wait time.

    • Black trash

      I would love Elder Scrolls 6 to be presented at E3, but I don’t see it happening.

    • One With Shadows

      I know right! Prob is a bit soon tho.

    Bloated combat system? If it got any simpler with Skyrim, you would have just clicked on the bad guy one time, then left the room for a bathroom break while it did everything for you. Some of these complaints are just silly.

  • Jeff Haskell

    Over complicated combat system? Did you play Skyrim? And for times exclusive, maybe you should own an Xbox.

  • daniel jennings (Orinth)

    So what your saying is to dumb this game down. Skyrim has been dumb down way to much as is and No one cares about to Xbox and PS versions of skyrim. And for times exclusive what about the numerous xpac size mods for skyrim if ur not playing it on pc ur not getting the full experience of an elder scrolls game.


    I’m not a super fan but have played oblivion and a little sky-rim. Just from reading some of the books I think it would make sense to make a super prequel to the game well maybe.. Some fans would disagree but it could work starting at the first era in tamriel before the discovery of magic or so it seems and go from there with the beginning of the blades the empire and the first 100 year war. The midevil theme in the elder scrolls is what drew me to the game in the first place but some of it got to obsessed with dorkyness,magic dark brotherhood and the unability to kill certain enemies without magic such as frost trolls etc.. Bethseda can do it they just need good writers and better combat and stay away from anything like the vats combat system like fallout 4 which I played for 20 minutes and found out how boring it was. If they could somwhow emphasize a better forging and make it a reality in the game where a steel sword is a commodity not something you find randomly. They need human characters and a complete overhual to extreme character customization throughout the game such as newhair beards body shape over time along with skill that equate to new moves new combos and better fightring skill also a have certain characters better at fighting from the start. An arrow kill sytem would be totally cool as well when you kill certain enemies from the right distance along with fire arrows like in the robin hood movies.
