It’s almost official. Bethesda Softworks will not be launching anything at all about “Elder Scrolls 6” in the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in June 16 to 18.
There have been insinuations in the past couple of weeks that the game developer will be launching the gameplay trailer and reveal more details of a role-playing game in the annual trade fair.
Gamers and enthusiasts were thinking that the video game would either be “Fallout 4” or “Elder Scrolls 6” as those are the only two role-playing games that have long been awaited by gamers from Bethesda.
But latest word is that it is unlikely for Bethesda to reveal anything about the “Elder Scrolls 6” this June, which pretty much gives the launching floor to “Fallout 4” come the E3 2015.
The Ecumenical News reported that the Bethesda would like unveil “Elder Scrolls 6” next year so any glimpse of the video game is definitely out in June.
Further attesting to this is the fact that Bethesda will actually be launching an extension of its multiplayer game “The Elder Scrolls Online” titled “The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited” on June 9 for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
With an extension of its online multiplayer game launched last year coming this June 9, it is very unlikely for the game developer to make any unveiling of an upcoming video game one week later or on the same month as that would definitely be counter-productive promotions-wise.
Official game title
While there have been reports that the sixth installment of “Elder Scrolls” would be titled “Elder Scrolls 6: Argonia,” there have been other reports that it could be a different one
Bethesda has reportedly trademarked the name ‘Redguard,’ which many believe could be the official name of “Elder Scrolls 6.” It was first trademarked by the developer on 2011 and has renewed it for a couple of times and is still a very active trademark to this day.
However, the ‘Redguard’ trademark may also be a bit confusing from Bethesda. The developer always trademarked the name of the next the “Elder Scrolls” game on the same year that they release one.
‘Oblivion’ was first trademarked in 2002, on the very same year that the “Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion” came out. ‘Skyrim’ was trademarked in 2006, on the same year that “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” came out.
‘Redguard’ was first trademarked in 2011, but “Elder Scrolls 6: Redguard” never came out that year even until today. So the trademarking pattern of Bethesda seems to be a bit off-course with regards to ‘Redguard.’ It has been constantly renewed since. And that is precisely the reason why many believe that the name would be use in the sixth installment of the “Elder Scrolls” franchise.
Bethesda has previously trademarked certain names including ‘Arena,’ ‘Daggerfall,’ and ‘Battlespire,’ but the developer simply let the trademarks expire and are now inactive.
