With the E3 2016 happening in a few days, fans are on the edge of their seats waiting for a possible Elder Scrolls 6 release date announcement. However, the word on the street says Bethesda is planning to release a “Skyrim” remaster.  Does this mean a delay for the sixth “Elder Scrolls” title?

A worried fan recently sent a valid concern to Metro’s Game Central. As the fan pointed out, “Not that I’m complaining but doesn’t a remastered Skyrim sound like an awful lot of work?” He then proceeded to state his observations that Bethesda could be going the remaster route to either “revamp the whole graphics system” or keep the waiting fans at bay since the “Elder Scrolls 6” release date is reportedly years away.

Metro answered, “That’s exactly what we thought, which is why we largely dismissed the rumors when we first heard them. There’s still no proof it’s real, but if it is we guess there must be enough remasters nowadays that making them has become its own mini-industry.”

In a previous report, Bethesda VP Pete Hines did confirm that “Elder Scrolls 6” will take a lot of time and effort to be completed. The exec made it very clear that its release date will not be announced this year despite claims of an E3 2016 sneak peek.

“Hines, speaking at Gamescom 2015, indicated that the studio would be turning all of their efforts toward completing Fallout 4 and recently took the time to expand on that; specifically, that The Elder Scrolls VI is still ‘a very long time away,’” Inquisitr reported.

“Bethesda usually releases a new TES every 4 years, so when Bethesda didn’t release ‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ last year we’re all a bit perplexed,” Crossmap noted. “However it seems like we’ll still have to wait another 4 years before we can see ‘The Elder Scrolls 6.’”
