Morrowing, Oblivion and Skyrim have won game of the year award, and fans around the world are eager to find out the exact release date and title of the upcoming ‘The Elder Scrolls 6″ after speculations around ‘Argonia’ and ‘Redguard’ turned out to be just a hoax. Rumors about Elder Scrolls 6 have surfaced signalling a release date before the end of 2015, however, official sources have confirmed that it not the case, and new rumours suggest ‘Elder Scrolls 6 or a Skyrim 2’ game is pointed to a release date of sometime in 2016-2017.

The biggest rumor for ‘Elder Scrolls 6 & Skyrim 2’ is the multiplayer mode, however, sources confirm this is highly unlikely for now.

Digital trends recently listed 5 things they want from ‘the Elder Scrolls 6’: a new combat system, an overhauled AI, a wider voice cast, more player agency and a compelling setting.

The Elder Scrolls Online continues to make high sales numbers, and while it’s not confirmed how much Skyrim has sold, it’s likely that it very easily tops over $1 billion USD on PC alone.

We are not yet sure if the core development team is available, however, Bethesda has the resources to make ‘Elder Scrolls 6 or a Skyrim 2’ a reality some time soon, from previous experience we clearly know that the studio has a history of starting their next project before the last is even released. We know they started working on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion before The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind had even officially released, and the same case is likely true of Skyrim.

For now, all we have is speculation and a few rumours, but Elder Scrolls fans, take hope;‘Elder Scrolls 6 or a Skyrim 2’ may be closer than anyone thinks.
