The Elder Scrolls - Rumor: V is a Direct Sequel
According to Eurogamer Denmark Bethesda is hard at work on the fifth game in the Elder Scrolls series. It will be a direct sequel to Elder Scrolls IV.
This information comes after one of Eurogamer's Denmark editors talked to a member of the Elder Scrolls V development team.
Eurogamer.net contacted the author of this story, Kristian West, to translate what was said into English. This is just a rumor and nothing official has been announced. Here is the translation of the report:
"This source not only confirmed that the game is in current production, but also spoke briefly about the content - with fantasy-sounding phrases like Dragon Lord, something with The Blades - and that voice acting for the characters in the game is currently happening in the weeks to follow.
"The same source confirmed, with official game documents in hand, that this will be the chronological sequel to what happened in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which is the latest game in the now 16-years-old Elder Scrolls saga and by itself one of the better RPGs for PC and consoles.
"The sequel to Oblivion is coming, we can hereby confirm without hesitation. It's been a while since 2006, hasn't it?"
