I knew people would be dissecting the Starfield trailer but I never imagined that they would somehow connect the dots to Elder Scrolls 6. I must admit it would be a nice little easter egg if true. But Personally it doesn't seem to really match. It would be better if it was a one to one recreation of the hammerfell and highrock map location.
In Todd Howard's interview with The Telegraph he says that the Elder Scrolls 6 is still in the design phase. While this is disappointing its not at all unexpected. Bethesda has had its hands full with developing Starfield. It only make sense that development of the Elder Scrolls 6 would take a back seat to the new IP. Source It feels like a few of the major studios were waiting for console tech to catch up to their new ideas. Rockstar has seemingly done the same thing with the GTA franchise. Its been almost 8 years since the release of the last GTA. And we've heard nothing other than rumors about the next game.
I think competition is good. For more than a decade the Elder Scrolls has rained supreme in terms of open world western RPGs. And Avowed looks like its coming to take its crown. Competition is Good For Gaming The fact that Microsoft has two studios that are competing in the same space bodes well for the future. I think that the worst thing that every happened to NFL video games was that EA sports got exclusive rights to the license it took 2K sports out of the picture and without the competition Madden just kinda stayed the same, there was no need for innovation. With a monopoly they had cornered the market. The NBA license was never monopolized by EA or 2K and eventually 2K's NBA games were so good. EA just stopped developing a basketball game using the NBA license. So I thinks its really good Obsidian and Bethesda are competing. Fans will inevitably play Elder scrolls 6 and Avowed and they will always compare the two. It will lead to innovation and cause both companies to really push the envelope. Avowed is More Than An Elder Scrolls Clone I think it would be a mistake to think Avowed is simply and Elder Scrolls clone though. If you haven't seen the official announcement trailer for Avowed yet be sure to check it out. While the dual wielding does leave strong echoes of Skyrim. The game is based on the pillars of eternity universe. So it already has a long established history, setting and magical system to draw on. There was a nice write up on 'games radar' about everything that we know about Avowed so far. Be sure to check it out when you get a chance. The rumor is that the world will feature a real time weather system and will be waaaay larger than Skyrim. I can't wait to hear more.
