Bethesda has tweeted about the Elder Scrolls. Yes, associates, we’re beginning 2020 with a bang: one of many world’s most notable videogame studios has acknowledged certainly one of its hottest videogame sequence. But with the Elder Scrolls 6 release date nonetheless years away, hype-starved followers have lots to learn into this message – and there may be an excellent cause for that.

The tweet, posted on December 31, reads “Transcribe the past and map the future. Here’s to a Happy New Year!” You may select to learn that as a slightly-cryptic New Year’s message, but it surely comes alongside a picture of a map with simply sufficient bizarre imagery to trace that ‘map the future’ is an invite to search for clues about TES6.

The map exhibits Skyrim, and there are three vibrant lights sitting on it. One is on a field above the map, one is in Skyrim itself, and the third is under the map, in an space marked just by the phrase ‘Hammerfell’. Popular hypothesis among the many group (as famous by Game Informer) is that the Skyrim gentle represents the ‘past’, the Hammerfell gentle represents the ‘future’, and the third gentle… effectively, no one appears to have a strong thought of what the third gentle represents.

Either method, the lights trace that the way forward for The Elder Scrolls is in Hammerfell, and certainly, well-liked hypothesis has advised that this would be the setting of TES6. The unique teaser trailer from E3 2018 confirmed a rocky panorama that appears very very like how Hammerfell has historically been depicted in Elder Scrolls lore.

Of course, the final time a storied developer of beloved RPG games randomly tweeted about certainly one of its apparently-dormant sequence, it was BioWare with Mass Effect – and now we’ve acquired a remastered trilogy on the way in which and a teaser trailer for Mass Effect 5. Who’s to say what would possibly comply with for Bethesda and The Elder Scrolls, then?
