The upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on June 14 to 16 got the fans of "The Elder Scrolls 6" hoping for an introduction, but latest reports suggest that the role-playing game may be out in 2017.
Fans got excited when Bethesda announced that they are looking for a character artist that has knowledge on role-playing games, more specificially if the person is familiar with "The Elder Scrolls." The job posting caused speculations that the "The Elder Scrolls 6" is now in the works and may arrive next year.
However, some say that the game may not be out until 2019 given the way Bethesda releases the game, which is consistently every four years. The previous installment, "The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited" was released in June 2015.
Pete Hines, the vice-president and PR and marketing of Bethesda, already stated that "The Elder Scrolls 6" will definitely happen, but they are currently concentrating on "Fallout 4." He did not mention any time frame for the upcoming game.
In an interview with Telegraph last year, Hines said that they are not rushing things with the upcoming game as they want a quality output.
"We do smaller stuff, we don't publish to scale, we try to publish to quality. Make sure everything we do is noteworthy. Our approach to that hasn't differed. Here and there we might change our approach to how it's presented but we've still stuck to who we are," he said.
Meanwhile, the game is believed to be the continuation of "Skyrim," but others believe that the upcoming game will have a new era of transformation, especially when Bethesda sought for a new character artist.
Enthusiasts are also debating the possible location of the game, particularly Valenwood and Elsweyr. As for the possible title, some same say it will be called "Argonica and Redguard," or just simply "Skyrim 2."
Details for the "The Elder Scrolls 6" still remain unreliable until now, but at least fans have something to look forward to.
