Every year, GamesIndustry.biz invites analysts from the Gaming Industry to predict what will happen the following year. The predictions for this year include the continued growth of VR, the success of the Nintendo Switch, increase in popularity of HTML5 gaming, and a merger of console and PC gaming experiences. Michael Pachter, a gaming analyst working at Wedbush Securities has predicted that Bethesda will be releasing The Elder Scrolls VI (TES 6) next year.
Along with the predictions for the next year, there is a report card about how accurate the predictions of the previous year were. Pachter has been chillingly accurate in his predictions, with not a single untrue prediction. Pachter thinks Bethesda is close to finishing the game, but that is very different from the signals being sent out by Bethesda.
Pete Hines is the Vice President of PR/ Marketing at Bethesda. Fans of The Elder Scrolls series constantly hound him about any kind of news on the next Elder Scrolls game. The most common thing that Hines tweets about TES 6 is that he will not be talking about it till there is an official announcement of the title. The studio has repeatedly revealed that there are a bunch of projects in the pipeline, before it is time for TES 6.
TES 6 is one of the most anticipated titles following the demand for new content by fans who have spent hours playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Skyrim got a remaster this year, free for PC users who got the Legendary Edition, or owned all the downloadable content packs, but at a steep price for console users. The Elder Scrolls game come out roughly every four years, which points to a release in 2019. Will Bethesda spring a welcome surprise and will we see the next Elder Scrolls game, after Skyrim this year, or is that being too hopeful?
