Bethesda has serious competition, but it might be their title, The Elder Scrolls Online, that provokes problems to The Elder Scrolls 6!
The Elder Scrolls 6 is one of the hottest subjects of the decade!
However, there is almost no news regarding that game since Bethesda released the initial trailer in 2018.
Fans are getting increasingly impatient for a new adventure in Tamriel.
Nearly ten years passed since Skyrim was released, and since then, many gamers have enjoyed The Elder Scrolls Online, set in the same world.
Some details implied by ESO might affect the development of The Elder Scrolls 6.
The events of ESO are set a thousand years before the events of Skyrim.
That implies that, over that period, Tamriel hasn’t changed too much.
Technology and Magic haven’t changed too much in a thousand years, so Bethesda will undoubtedly face a serious challenge trying to keep the experience fresh.
Before ESO, the 200 year gap between Oblivion and Skyrim was the longest time gap.
During those two centuries, the Empire was brought to its knees, and the Third Aldmeri Dominion gained influence and power.
ESO lets players explore many parts of the provinces across all of Tamriel, which is a severe challenge to Bethesda.
Places like Blackmarsh, Elsweyr, and the Summerset Isles were once covered in mystery, and now players caught a significant glimpse of them.
In Skyrim, we only had vague mentions of Elsweyr from Khajits, which covered the area with a blanket of mystery, that made us even more curious and immersed.
Zenimax established that ESO is canon though it is not made by Bethesda, which is a problem if the rumors that The Elder Scrolls 6 is set in Hammerfell and High Rock to turn out right.
They can’t just reshape the world each year, can they?
