Right now the only bit of information we know about The Elder Scrolls VI is that it won’t even get a good look until Bethesda finished Starfield (think Fallout and Skyrim but in space). The unfortunate bit about the news of Elder Scrolls VI not even going into full production until after Starfield, is we don’t even have a release date for Starfield yet. It looks to be close to being finished, but some are speculating it won’t release until 2020 or later.
Honestly, that kind of sucks, but we, as gamers, have this weird cycle where we get all hyped for a video game release and then forget about it until it’s almost released. It’s like a weird time-lapse that we fill with other video games and crippling existential crisis episodes.
One thing we can speculate, however, is where The Elder Scrolls VI will take place. So far, we’ve seen Hammerfell and High Rock in Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, Morrowind in Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, the imperial province of Cyrodiil in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and finally Skyrim in the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Of course, we did get to see bits and pieces of the game through smaller titles such as Redguard, but we still haven’t seen the entirety of places like Hammerfell, Valenwood, or Elsweyr.
The general consensus seems to be the likelihood of the Elder Scrolls VI taking place in Valenwood to be the strongest bet. Besides the Elder Scrolls: Arena, the location hasn’t really been looked at. It also doesn’t help the argument for any other location that the Elder Scrolls 6 project name is “Project Greenheart,” a city in Valenwood. For now, it looks like we’ll just have to wait and see where we can pick up the adventures of the same sneaky archer that everyone seems to play.
