Elder Scrolls 6 was first revealed in June 2018 and with over a year passing since it was confirmed to be in development, many fans are desperate for more information from Bethesda. 

For some, a release date would be enough, but there’s no doubt that the cult fanbase that this game series has attracted since its launch in 1994 has become restless, as the last installment from the franchise was released over 8 years ago.

Elder Scrolls 6 release date 

There has been no official release date given to the Elder Scrolls 6 project so far, but there is a timeline that Bethesda’s Todd Howard might well have hinted towards.

During an interview with IGN on June 4, the Game Studios Director claimed that players will understand why it took so long for them to develop the game, once they get their hands on it – suggesting that it would be something they could play for another decade.

BethesdaFans can’t wait to see where the Elder Scrolls takes them next.

“The one thing [the gap] does is people are still playing Skyrim, it’s still one of the best-selling games,” he said. “They love it, they still play it, it’s almost infinitely playable, all of the mods and everything like that. And we’re 8 years post-Skyrim. It lets us know going into Elder Scrolls 6 that this is a game we need to design for people to play for a decade at least, at least.”

This could spell bad news for fans, though, as there’s a chance that the game could be released 10 years after Skyrim, which would mean Bethesda is working towards a 2021 release date.

It’s worth noting that Michael Pachter, an analyst for Wedbush Securities, had also wrote on GameIndsutry.biz that Elder Scrolls 6 could be coming in 2019, but that obviously proved not to be the case.

BethesdaSome fans are still playing Skyrim today, around 8 years after its initial launch. Will Elder Scrolls 6 have the same longevity?

Elder Scrolls 6 trailer

There has only been one trailer for Elder Scrolls 6 and even calling it a trailer is probably pushing it – it’s more of a teaser than anything. Fans were shown their first glimpse of the game in June 2018, confirming that it was being developed, but there wasn’t much more to talk about than that.

All the trailer shows is the potential setting in which the game could take place. If a mountain range is what you were looking for, you have come to the right place.

The Elder Scrolls 6 exclusive to Xbox?

Like Starfield, The Elder Scrolls 6’s release on PlayStation 5 has come into question. On September 21, 2020, Microsoft announced they were acquiring Bethesda and its parent company ZeniMax, which caused some players to wonder if TES6 will be exclusive to Xbox.

With Head of Xbox Phil Spencer stating in a Bloomberg interview that the company will evaluate Bethesda releases on other platforms on a “case by case basis”, there’s now a serious possibility that The Elder Scrolls 6 will become an Xbox exclusive.

As far as the public is aware, nothing is stopping Microsoft from doing this from a legal perspective. The question of “will they” however, is a whole other conversation. While Microsoft may want to pull consumers in to the Xbox platform with an exclusive game like that, the game would make a killing on PlayStation 5 in terms of sales.

Right now, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Call of Duty

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
