As most fans know, they won’t be seeing The Elder Scrolls 6 anytime soon. Bethesda is currently busy with two other games, not including the titles they are publishing like Dishonored 2 or the upcoming Quake Champions. Apparently, there will be two big games that will be coming out, one of which might be the new game Fallout: New Orleans.
The new Fallout game surfaced when it was revealed that Bethesda had just trademarked the title in Europe. No other news came out, but it seems like it will be a spinoff to Fallout 4, much like how Fallout: New Vegas was a companion title to Fallout 3. Fans can look at the trademark here in the Intellectual Property Office in Europe.
It’s a move that’s gotten a lot of fans talking, especially when Gamingbolt reported that we wouldn’t see a possible Elder Scrolls 6 after two big games. It doesn’t get any bigger than a Fallout game, even if it’s a spinoff like Fallout: New Orleans. After all, Fallout: New Vegas impressed a lot of gamers, with some preferring it over last year’s big hit Fallout 4.
Only time will tell what the second game will be. Bethesda previously stated that they were not limited to making Elder Scrolls and Fallout, so perhaps this will be a brand new IP. Considering how the company has garnered a loyal fanbase over the years, gamers everywhere are probably ready for a new game from the company.
While neither game will be coming out anytime soon, there is the upcoming Skyrim remaster to look forward to. This re-release will make the game look even better than it originally did while also adding mods that weren’t available in last-gen consoles. PC players that bought the original game will get a free copy of the re-release.
It will be a few years before we see Elder Scrolls 6 or Fallout: New Orleans come to current-gen consoles or PC. Bethesda has been pretty busy lately and that won’t change anytime soon. At the least, the games will be of high quality.
