‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ to Feature the Return of Dragons from ‘The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim’

After its no-show at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 last month, talks have heighten all the more regarding the possible release date of the very popular and highly-anticipated role-playing game “The Elder Scrolls 6.”

With game developer Bethesda Softworks launching gameplay and other reveals on “Fallout 4” and other popular video games in its stable, everyone believes that 2016 would be the year for “The Elder Scrolls 6.”

In fact, there are reports that came out after E3 2015 that “The Elder Scrolls 6” will likely be the biggest game of Bethesda next year and rumors are rife that it would be launched at the E3 2016.

While its release date has been the subject of talks and reports or rumors on the internet, the Vine Report got wind of information that there are also speculations that the dragons that were featured in the previous installment of the franchise “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” will return to the upcoming game.

It can be recalled that it was Alduin who awakened the dragons. While a good number of them were defeated towards the end of “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,” there were still a handful of them that escaped. And those beasts would likely return for the next installment of the franchise.

Possible locations

There have also been talks of late regarding the possible settings or locations for “The Elder Scrolls 6” as there are still plenty of worlds in the game that have yet to be explored.

According to the Day Herald, the two primary locations that fans of the “The Elder Scrolls” franchise would love to see are Elsweyr and Valenwood. “The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited” which was released on June 9 featured the incredibly beautiful Summerset Isles but the game did not fully explore it yet so the location could also be a possibility for “The Elder Scrolls 6.”

Elsweyr and Valenwood are two fine locations and both offer extra flavor and variety compared to the dark and depressing Skyrim region.

In addition to good locations, gamers also want an improved combat for “The Elder Scrolls 6” when it comes out next year because it is one facet of the game that really needs serious improvement.

Likely game title

There were reports that the official title of “The Elder Scrolls 6” is currently a toss-up between “Argonia” and “Redguard.”

While there have been previous reports that the official title of “The Elder Scrolls 6” will be “Argonia,” recent initiatives of the game developer to register and trademarked the name “Redguard” has added to the confusion among gamers.

Some are saying that it would be “Argonia” while others are quite positive that Bethesda would call the next game as “Redguard.”

Although “Argonia” has the clear head start over “Redguard” as the main title of the next “The Elder Scrolls” game, the reasoning behind the latter seems quite convincing.

Accordingly, Bethesda has already trademarked “Redguard” from way back in 2011 and that it is an active and continuously renewed trademark of “The Elder Scrolls” franchise. All the other game trademarks including “Arena,” “Daggerfall,” and “Battlespire” are already inactive.

“Redguard” is the only “The Elder Scrolls” trademark that is not yet dead or not being used in a released game. Bethesda did the same too for “Skyrim” before its release in 2011.

There has already been a game called “The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard” that was released by Bethesda back in 1998 so it is unlikely for the developer to use it again in its upcoming role-playing game.

According to Bethesda Softworks, the recently-released “The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited” was just a spin-off of the series and the highly-anticipated sixth installment will surprise fans and gamers big time.


  1. I didn’t like The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. The cheat codes have been eliminated, you can’t even save the game when you want, and I have many issues with loading the game.

  2. Just would like to say. MMO’s have a long lifespan, and Bethesda just released Tamriel Unlimited for all platforms. Knowing that MMo’s last a long time, I don’t think we will be seeing a new Elderscrolls game next year, but the year after.

  3. Damn right that cheat codes are illiminated…hence the word…CHEAT …
    It is better in my oppinion to not exploit a game, and let everything devellop like in real life, where you have some hard times and pleasant times. Cheating means a lack of caracter if you ask me, and is a childisch attitude.


  4. Elderscolls is not a third person game it is also a first person game which most people play it as… except for eso but eso isn’t really an elderscrolls game, more of just a cash in on the brand

  5. I honestly wouldn’t mind if they didn’t release The Elder Scrolls 6 next year. I know it’s still a long time since it would mean it would have been 6 years from the release from Skyrim, but if they focus on what we want and really do a great job on the game, and work hard, then it may just be an amazing game…

  6. It hasn’t even been 4 years since the release of TESV: Skyrim. We’ve still got 9 more days to go.

    The total time that Bethesda spent on developing Skyrim is 5 years, 7 months, and 22 days.
    They didn’t announce the game until about 4 years & 9 months into its development.

    We’ve still got a-ways to go, and TES VI will take them longer to develop than Skyrim (especially if they want it to be a MUCH better game).

    This is why the earliest possible time of release for TES VI would be Q4 2017.
