We’ve all been waiting patiently, anticipating the announcement of the next Elder Scrolls game from celebrated developer Bethesda. Unfortunately, the year is almost out and that will make five years since the 2006 release of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and not one whisper from the team about a sequel.
Eurogamer claims to have a source that can safely confirm development of The Elder Scrolls V, saying:
“This source not only confirmed that the game is in current production, but also spoke briefly about the content – with fantasy-sounding phrases like Dragon Lord, something with The Blades – and that voice acting for the characters in the game is currently happening in the weeks to follow. The same source confirmed, with official game documents in hand, that this will be the chronological sequel to what happened in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which is the latest game in the now 16-years-old Elder Scrolls saga and by itself one of the better RPGs for PC and consoles. The sequel to Oblivion is coming, we can hereby confirm without hesitation. It’s been a while since 2006, hasn’t it?”
How exciting is that, right? Of course, this is a rumor and should be treated as false until proven otherwise. That doesn’t make it any less promising, especially for fans that’ve had their fingers crossed for nearly half a decade. Let’s hope that we’ll get confirmation on the next Elder Scrolls game soon. Until then, get your ES jollies here.
