We know that The Elder Scrolls 6 is happening but a brand new rumour claims it’s not happening anytime soon. Sob.
The rumours come from a supposed developer on the project, but as it’s unverified, take it with a pinch of salt until we hear official word.
The alleged leak has surface via Reddit, where a user claiming to be intimate with the project has said TES 6 won’t be dropping until the year 2025. This would make the game a next-gen title, though considering the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are due to drop this year, that’s not really too surprising.
What is interesting, is that the leak is claiming to give us a first look at what the game will actually involve – and it’s apparently set in High Rock and Hammerfall.
The rumour reads as follows: “Most of you have guessed right, it takes place in High Rock and Hammerfell. But the twist is that the landmass you see in the trailer is actually Yokuda, the archipelago remnants of the Redguard’s homeland,
“We’re really excited about this because High Rock hasn’t be really explored since Daggerfall, and Hammerfell has a ton of interesting lore that’s really shaping quests and plot lines. So many players seem to think that High Rock is just generic medieval fantasy, but the truth though is that Arena and Daggerfall were both more closely inspired by DnD, and as a result leaned into that generic fantasy a bit more.
“Our approach to High Rock is going to be more closely leaning into Mark Jones’s various concept work from Battlespire. Still a bit close to the typical medieval fantasy, but it’s got a really unique style that a lot of us are passionate about. High Rock is shaping up to be really interesting and it really scratches the itch for a mystic world. A lot of the quests revolve around political intrigue and making advancement in magic.”
The leak is jam-packed with other details too, such as the idea that you’ll only be able to play as a human, and that it won’t be a procedurally-generated game as previous rumours have claimed.
