The Elder Scrolls is a franchise of action role-playing open world format video games developed and published by Bethesda. The first game of this series was released in 1994, and the latest took place in 2012. At the same time, in 2012, Bethesda introduced Elder Scrolls Online, which featured multiplayer battles and a monthly subscription fee. However, later it became an FTP title.
The Elder Scrolls Online faced a mixed reception from the fans of the series and gamers alike. It seems like Players were not too happy about how Bethesda handled its features. On one side, gamers were excited to explore the Elder Scrolls world featured in an MMO setting. Sadly, the game was riddled with major issues right from the beginning.
It certain took Bethesda a lot of time to adjust and address all these issues from the start. While Bethesda was busy trying to root out the issues, the popularity of Elder Scrolls Online declined. Thankfully for Bethesda, a lot of people started getting back to this game with its more polished version, released a few months later. Hence, it’s a bit strange that a lot of people are looking at Elder Scrolls Online and expecting the potential setting of an upcoming Elder Scrolls 6. Meanwhile, this game wasn’t set in Tamriel like the earlier games in this series. However, Summerset Isle became quite popular among fans all over the world. Gamers have a lot of things to explore in Tamriel with future games of this series. This doesn’t mean that Bethesda needs to stick to this area and not migrate to something newer and fresher.
The possibilities of exploring other locations will certainly spice things up a notch. Certain rumors indicate that the game could be set in Black Marsh, and players can move to other Tamriel locations like Cyrodill, Skyrim, Hammerfall and Morrowind.
A lot of fans aren’t too happy with this idea. According to them, taking away the single-player setting from Tamriel will be a major mistake. In the end, all that matters is the name and the lore and knowing Bethesda, it should be able to handle them quite well. Furthermore, immersion is always a major factor in the Elder Scrolls Franchise.
