Bethesda teases ‘the future’ of The Elder Scrolls with a map and a cryptic tweet

“Interpret the past and guide what’s to come.”

On December 31, the cusp of the new year, Bethesda tweeted a mysterious message over the authority Elder Scrolls Twitter account: “Decipher the past and guide what’s to come. Here’s to a Happy New Year!” on a superficial level it had the ring of a genuinely standard year-end message, yet the spot about record and planning—and the presence of a guide—has fans contemplating whether there’s something else entirely to it than meets the eye.

There are a couple contending speculations drifting around about what it may mean. The expansive agreement in this enthusiastic Reddit string is that the third flame speaks to the “future” implied in the tweet, recommending that The Elder Scrolls 6 will occur in Hammerfell, the home of the Redguards. Be that as it may, the principal flame in the arrangement is causing frustration: It’s not on the guide by any stretch of the imagination, but rather over the ocean north of Skyrim—maybe a reference to the appearance of the Atmorans? But on the other hand it’s sitting on a case, and who understands what that may mean.

On Twitter, notwithstanding, adherents appear to be more taken with the coins at the highest point of the picture and the date of the guide: 4E 182, which is really quite a long while before the occasions of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. That is directed to some hypothesis that the following Elder Scrolls game will be reasonably firmly associated with the last one. It would likewise apparently affirm (however much that any of this can be considered “affirmation”) that the tweet isn’t about The Elder Scrolls Online, which is set halfway during that Time Era, hundreds of years before the singleplayer Elder Scrolls RPGs.

It’s conceivable that the entirety of this amounts to nothing—that it was, indeed, simply a decent “Cheerful New Year” tweet utilizing a few resources from Skyrim in light of the fact that that is the thing that Bethesda had lying around. It’s not amazing that fans are going for it, however: Bethesda has said essentially nothing about The Elder Scrolls 6 since its emotional uncover in 2018, then again, actually it won’t be out until at some point after the science fiction RPG Starfield, which itself doesn’t have a delivery date now.
