The latest rumors surrounding Bethesda’s next highly anticipated Elder Scrolls game have hit social media. According to SKULLZI, a leaker who’s been correct with their claims before, The Elder Scrolls VI will be set in Hammerfell, a region that was initially introduced in the first Elder Scrolls game (Arena) as the homeland of the Redguards, a race of humans.
The sixth mainline installment of the franchise is also said to have a targeted release date of 2025–2026, a political system, and, much unlike The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, will lack dragons. Another reputable leaker, Xbox Era’s @Shpeshal_Nick, has corroborated SKULLZI’s rumors, claiming that most of these rumors align “almost perfectly” with what he’s heard.
If it helps, Skullzi's ES6 info aligns *almost* perfectly with everything I've been told about it. Except the dragon stuff. That hasn't been mentioned to me.— Nick (@Shpeshal_Nick) April 27, 2022
Also got the Remasters confirmed to me just now
Good to see others hearing about Quake Reboot and Project Wyrmwood too https://t.co/i7k617iFke
SKULLZI also shared rumors on other Bethesda-related projects that are supposedly on the drawing board. They include remastered versions of Elder Scrolls and Fallout games, and while the exact titles don’t seem to be clear, Wasteland’s inXile is reportedly in charge of their development. A 4x Elder Scrolls game could also be in the works.
Another claim is that a reboot of id Software’s other classic FPS franchise, Quake, is in the works. This game will presumably follow in the footsteps of DOOM’s 2016 reboot, which reinvented the franchise with major changes such as melee finishers and a weapon upgrade system. Bethesda released an enhanced version of the original Quake last year.
