Bethesda has been through some hot water in the last year after the disastrous release of Fallout 76. The first foray of the company into live-service games disappointed many fans, and the company fell from grace faster than some thought.
It is hoped that upcoming titles will redeem Bethesda as many fans are looking forward to The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield.
Almost eight years have passed since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released upon the world, receiving praise from players and reviewers alike. The renowned title was released across a large number of platforms, and many believe that Bethesda can deliver a worthy sequel or a new entry in the series.
The internet rumor machine is always hard at work, and there are several rumors which are related to the possible location of the next entry in the series. Read below to find more about the possible locations.
High Rock is the capital of the Bretons, the humans with the best magic skills in Tamriel. This location was accessible in The Elder Scroll 2:Daggerfall, and it is also featured heavily in the second expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online.
A quick look at the map of Tamriel will show that Hammerfell is right under the lower-right half of Hight Rock. Hammerfell was present in Daggerfall and a spinoff title known as The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard.
It is also possible that Bethesda may take the decision to choose a different location, among which we can count Valenwood, Elsweyr, and Black Marsh. Some voices claim that Black Marsh is the most suitable location since it would offer a fresh geographic potential.
An old memo suggests that the game could be set in Valenwood. The leak is an old internal memo that surfaced on the internet in 2014 and also mentions Fallout: Nuka World, which became a DLC for Fallout 4.
