It has been a while since Bethesda released the multi-awarded open-world action role-playing game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim," and fans of the action RPG have been hankering to see a new game from the "Elder Scrolls" franchise. While it is not surprising that Bethesda is keeping quiet about any development, news and rumors about when "Elder Scrolls 6" will be released have been circulating online for quite some time now. The latest report says the "Elder Scrolls 6" may be announced at the upcoming E3 2016, according to Neurogadget.
The report cited an earlier announcement by Bethesda that they will be holding another press conference during the E3 2016, scheduled on June 12, Sunday. It also noted that the company has not been in the habit of holding press events unless it has something important to announce. At the E3 2015, it was "Fallout 4" which was the star of the show, with a few other games announced on the side such "Doom" and "The Elder Scrolls Legends."

It also cited that there were reports of Bethesda confirming that "Elder Scrolls 6" was already in development and that it was already being called "Skyrim 2." While most fans would want to see the game sooner than later, the report said that it may not be announced until 2017. more >>
