Bethesda Softworks’ The Elder Scrolls The franchise can make a decent claim of being the largest RPG series in the world. Despite the recent full payment, the hugely successful Skyrim, which was released way back in 2011, it is still very popular. In part, this is because the aforementioned game has been brought to virtually every platform under the sun, but spinoffs like MMO The Elder Scrolls Online and mobile title The Elder Scrolls: Blades has also helped keep the franchise in the spotlight.
We know that The Elder Scrolls VI is in development at the moment, although nothing is known about what it will consist of, and all we have seen is a short teaser trailer that basically just confirmed that the title exists. It may take a while before we learn more about it, but in the meantime, a new rumor has been reported by insider Daniel Richtman this week that Netflix is working on a show based on The Elder Scrolls, and that it will be as big as what they take The Witcher.
An interesting wrinkle with this is that Bethesda Softworks is already developing a major TV series adaptation of one of their games with Netflix̵
In any case, it will be interesting to see when and where this is set. The Elder ScrollsTamriel’s world is a big place with a lot of history and hundreds of years go by between the titles. In addition, because the games are about player freedom, there is not a memorable character like Geralt from The Witcher To focus on. Still, I can easily see a show that explores cool elements like the Dark Brotherhood Assassination Agency or the Thieves Guild. In addition, it will be fun to get new impressions of Daedric Princes, especially the ever entertaining Sheogorath.
Maybe this can also be linked directly to the next Older rolls game. After all, it would be nice to see a prequel show that sets up the world before we get to explore every inch of it ourselves.
