‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ rumors: Why the next game is unlikely titled ‘Redfall’; ‘ESO: Greymoor’ gets a new official release date
It has been mentioned many times that “The Elder Scrolls 6” is supposedly going to be titled “Redfall.” However, not only that these remain to be unverified reports, there are some indications they could be a hoax.
‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ leaks on ‘Redfall’ title and Akavir location debunked
The word “leak” has been tossed around so much among video game fans recently. “The Elder Scrolls 6” leaks have also been making headlines from time to time, but nothing appears to solidly represent gameplay information about the highly anticipated game.
Rumors about “The Elder Scrolls 6” getting titled “Redfall” peaked when ZeniMax Media was found applying to have it trademarked. The video game developer even got into a legal dispute with sci-fi author Jay Falconer, but it was later “amicably resolved” per a joint statement from both parties.
With ZeniMax’s apparent effort to not let go of the “Redfall” trademark, it further sparked rumors it could be the future title of “The Elder Scrolls 6.” However, a fan recently expressing exasperation over the persistent “leaks,” pointed out that writer Michael Kirkbride, known for his work on the “The Elder Scrolls” series, had previously told fans on Reddit, “The game is not called Redfall.”
Fans should also consider that Bethesda Softworks has been saying “The Elder Scrolls 6” still has a long way to go before getting released. With that considered, many details about the game are likely not finalized yet, and it only makes so-called leaks more suspicious.
‘The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor’: Bethesda sets new release date
What fans of the franchise can look forward to in the immediate future is the launching of the “The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor” chapter. It is one of the highlights of Bethesda’s one-year content update roadmap for the MMORPG that will bring players back to Skyrim.
However, the development of “The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor” has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic forcing Bethesda to change its release date. On the bright side, developers have now confirmed the delay only amounts to one week, and the next ESO chapter will be out on Tuesday, May 26, for PC and Mac players and on Tuesday, June 9 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
