10 Things We Want From Elder Scrolls 6

Our next trip to Tamriel could be the best one yet.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was a genre-defining game, the sort that captured and commanded mainstream attention like few others can. You might argue that Oblivion or Morrowind were the better games in the series, but Skyrim’s popularity and longevity have been pretty much unmatched since it released in 2011.

The Elder Scrolls Online might have tided some fans over, but plenty of others are clamouring for a new single-player Elder Scrolls game, a chance to explore new dungeons, meet new characters, and put new cabbages in new baskets.

Given that Fallout 4 wasn't officially unveiled until a few months before release, it's unlikely that we'll see any concrete announcements regarding The Elder Scrolls VI any time soon. Both the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series tend to operate on 4-5 year development cycles, and while it's already been more than five years since Skyrim was released, Bethesda's Pete Hines has sternly reminded the world that TES VI is not currently in development.

Considering Skyrim sold over 30 million copies across nearly six years though, it's pretty much a given that a new Elder Scrolls game is in the works to some degree. While Skyrim and its remastered versions still hold up well all these years later, there are certain features, locations, characters, and hopefully, bugs we'd rather didn't show up again, and others that we’d love to see realised or refreshed in the next instalment (except the bugs, of course!).
