Rumors are swirling around the net of a possible Elder Scrolls V reveal at this year’s E3 (starting June 14th). Bethesda have stated they have a secret announcement for E3 resulting in many pointing their blissfully wishful fingers at the Elder Scrolls franchise. The timing for this would make sense as it’s been four years since Oblivion was released which itself came four years after Morrowind. There is also a chance that this secret is an Elder Scrolls MMO but Bethesda have already said that they wouldn’t be making such a game because ZeniMax Online – a division of Bethesda – deals with all that.
I, like a considerable amount of others, do so hope a new Elder Scrolls is in development. Oblivion consumed so much of my time that I didn’t realise we had a summer in 2006. It’s been a long time coming and Fallout 3 may have been close to a spiritual successor but not a satisfying replacement. All should be revealed in a couple of weeks.
