Like any upcoming release, we’re hungry for more information. In the article below, we’ll collate everything we know about Elder Scrolls 6, both rumoured and leaked, and confirmed. Here’s all we know…

Elder Scrolls 6, the long-awaited sequel to the ever-popular Skyrim, is finally upon us. If people thought Oblivion was popular back in the day, Skyrim has blown that completely out of the water. Surviving generations, Skyrim has proven to be a true classic of our age. Now, though, attention is being gradually turned onto the next title in Bethesda’s fantasy series…

Last year, Microsoft bought Bethesda for a whopping $7.5 billion USD. This had everyone wondering about the next Elder Scrolls game ( and vying for a Fallout: New Vegas remaster ) and whether it was still coming to PlayStation consoles. Eventually. As far as the world is aware, Elder Scrolls 6 will be cross-console. Xbox will just have an upper hand, which is fair. But is that all we know?
