But it’s probably The Elder Scrolls Online, who knows.
Game giant Bethesda is teasing something The Elder Scrolls-related.
In a post on the series’ Twitter account on December 31, the company tweeted a picture of a map along with the caption “Transcribe the past and map the future.”
As discovered by Rock Paper Shotgun, the current map of the region is Skyrim and has three lights. One is after the “Province of Skyrim” text for the map – also in the unmapped area of Hammerfell – while another is at the location of Solitude, the capital of Skyrim. The final light comes from a pile of coins, which was apparently featured in a collector’s edition of 2020’s Greymoor expansion for … The Elder Scrolls Online.
Honestly, who knows. There are probably bigger things to be worried about right now like a particular global pandemic, the fact that we are literally cooking on the planet, or the absurd and ever-increasing gap between rich and poor.
Maybe this is not the teaser for The Elder Scrolls 6 as many had hoped. This title was announced at E3 2018, but Bethesda has said that it will take some time before we hear a lot about this brand new project.
The company’s boss Todd Howard has said it has made some major technical leaps in its Creation Engine for The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield.
Meanwhile, Bethesda has teased the next chapter of its Elder Scrolls Online MMO, which appears to be set in Oblivion.
Microsoft announced in September 2020 that it would buy Bethesda for $ 7.5 billion.
