'The Elder Scrolls 6,' Bethesda Could Opt For A Reboot Of The Series And Can Still Be Just As Successful As 'Skyrim,' Say CriticsBy Ron S., UniversityHerald Reporter
Bethesda's "The Elder Scrolls 6" can be a reboot of the franchise, and game can still be as successful as its predecessors as critics predict.
"The Elder Scrolls" series has been known to feature a new province in Tamriel with every new game, which makes a number of fans only speculate over which part of the country the next game would take place, the Gaming Bolt reported.
As Bethesda announced in February that "The Elder Scrolls 6" is already in development, fans are quick to speculate where the next installment would take place.
Many critics predict that the game developers can choose to step away from the trend and launch a reboot of the series instead, and the game would still be as successful as its previous games.
Bethesda has been busy with the release of "Fallout 4" last year, and can be forgiven for the delay of the new "The Elder Scrolls" game. And during the game developer's E3 2016 press conference, it announced that it will soon launch a "Skyrim" special edition, according to Ecumenical News.
Fans of the series are growing impatient with another apparent setback for the franchise. Rumors even surfaced online that the new installment would be a sequel to same province from the game, which is dubbed by fans as "Skyrim 2."
Nevertheless, the delay just seems to fuel more hype for the series and hardly damaging. As Bethesda also stated that the new installment in the series is still far from being released, critics predict that the trend of continuing the trend of featuring new provinces in Tamriel may have hit a wall within the game developers.
Among the legacy of "The Elder Scolls" franchise, critics say that Bethesda can get away with a reboot, and still continue the series' success as it has established a large fan base.
Bethesda has yet to reveal any detail about the newest installment in the series, and new development over "The Elder Scrolls 6" may not come anytime soon, Neurogadget reported.
