The future of The Elder Scrolls franchise is definitely going to be an amazing one with its upcoming 6thinstallment. However, it may be delayed for a bit due to some issues and updates. Here are some of the important updates that might ring a bell.
Videogame For Gen X
The Elder Scrolls is basically a videogame developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. What you do not know is that it has become a favorite of the older generation of gamers.
Perhaps it is because of their affection for fantasy video games that are filled with magic spells and monsters. Well, this was not actually the perception of Bethesda when they first announced the series to a crowd of cheering gamers, industry insiders, and journalists.
Experience Helped A Lot
According to Bethesda founder Christopher Weaver, the series has found its way to the older, unlikely fans, which actually paved the way to where the franchise can be seen today. In the early days of The Elder Scrolls, the company was really onto something amazing. Until now, many players have become attached to the game, following the central story towards its logical conclusion.
As a matter of fact, Weaver was amazed after realizing that it has made an impact to the unexpected audience the moment they began sending registration cards back in the day. He even reached out to them to find out why and how come they have come to love the Elder Scrolls series.
As the series progressed, Bethesda kept that in mind and worked hard to make the game as accessible to almost everyone. Even after Weaver left the company in 2002, this concept has greatly made an impact to the game’s development over the years.
The Elder Scrolls Franchise
You can’t discount the fact that many have been waiting for years for the release of The Elder Scrolls 6. So when the announcement finally popped out in E3 2018, it has given a ray of hope that they have not waited in vain after all.
However, the exact details as to when the release date will be or when Tamriel will take place is out of the question for now. This is because Bethesda is not yet ready to reveal the details. For now, updates regarding the game’s release have no less been acquired from interviews and rumors.
What Took The Elder Scrolls 6 So Long?
The announcement made at the E3 also hinted about a further delay to the release of The Elder Scrolls 6. This is because of the trailer that was intended for Starfield. Not much can be revealed about the game, but it might get the go signal first before the much awaited 6th installment.
Based from the interview with Bethesda executive Todd Howard, it can be concluded that the development might not fully favor The Elder Scrolls 6 yet. This can extend after Starfield will be released, which can take a matter of years.
The good news is that Starfield is currently playable, according to Howard himself. Furthermore, The Elder Scrolls 6 is now in the pre-production stage. Therefore, you can say that the game can be on its way towards production. Who knows, it will be a timely release when the next generation of gaming consoles will be out. But you can expect it to happen sometime in late 2019 or early 2020s just to be safe.
