The Elder Scrolls 6 (VI) News: Release date, ideas & location

All the latest Elder Scrolls 6 rumours rolled into one, from its suspected release date to ideas and the location at which it's expected to be set

The trailer and images in this article are of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of 2011’s most critically acclaimed video games – it was even awarded one of T3’s rare 5 star reviews - shipping over 10 million copies in its first month alone.

 

In fact its creators, Bethesda, have recently announced an online version of the game, The Elder Scrolls Online, such is the success of the role-playing series.  

Although we may not be seeing it for some time, rumours surrounding the launch of the sixth Elder Scrolls title have already emerged.

We round up the latest news, rumours, trailers and ideas for what’s sure to be another PS3 smash.

The Elder Scrolls 6: Teaser

In the last couple of days, Bethesda has released a couple of baffling teasers on the Vine. Naturally, this has caused the rumour mill to go absolutely beserk and media and players alike are specualting about what the footage could signal on internet forums.

The majority of all of this heated theorising points to a brand new Fallout game, but it's not beyond the realms of possiblity that the teasers could herald the arrival of the Elder Scrolls 6. Only Bethesda know at this stage - and they're not saying. Watch this space.

The Elder Scrolls 6: Release date

Alas, there’s been no official word on when the sixth TES will land. Why? Simply because it doesn't exist – well, not yet anyways.

However, a recent job posting on the Zenimax website - Bethesda's publishing arm - called for experienced applicants to work on an 'unannounced game'.

It read: “Bethesda Game Studios is looking for experienced programmers to work on cutting-edge technology for an unannounced game on future-generation consoles.”

Could it be The Elder Scrolls 6?

TES skyrim

The ad expressed interest in developers with 'extensive experience' in 'programming and optimizing for the Xbox 360 and PS3', suggesting that the lucky candidate could be jazzing up Bethesda's current engine as opposed to creating a new one, according Official PlayStation Magazine.

Even if the advertisement was referring to Skyrim's successor, it could be a while before it finally hits shelves.

Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind landed in 2002, Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion was released in 2006 and its follow-up, Skyrim, officially launched at the end of 2011. Annoyingly, we could be kept waiting up to five whole years for the sixth version of the game.

As a result, TES 6 is likely to be developed for the next generation of consoles - the Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720, which should pave the way for more progressive enhancements than in the previous five titles.
