Bethesda has gone silent after teasing the highly anticipated The Elders Scrolls 6 at E3 2019. The fans of the Elder Scrolls series got hyped, but the silence around the launch is worrisome.
According to reports, the development of The Elder Scrolls 6 was halted after a copyright violation lawsuit was filed against Bethesda.
The details suggest that the lawsuit was filed after it came to light that the next Elder Scrolls 6 could be called Redfall, which is also the name of a popular book series.
This issue could have taken years to resolve in court, forcing Bethesda to junk the project altogether in favor of a new title or a workaround.
However, a report from CriticalHit.net claims that publisher of the book series and Bethesda have settled their dispute. Zenimax made an official statement that they are pleased that Bethesda and Zenimax were able to resolve the pending trademark dispute which was related to the title.
CriticalHit.net reports that the issue has been resolved with some sort of payment details of which have been kept secret for some reason.
Is this the confirmation that next Elder Scrolls would be called The Elder Scroll: Redfall. It is possible that this is the case because Bethesda has trademark all the names they used in the past for the Elder Scrolls.
What to expect from The Elder Scroll: Redfall?
While celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Elder Scroll series, the studio showcased video footage showcasing all the titles from the past.
Finally, Bethesda showcased a teaser trailer for the Elder Scroll 6. The details gathered from the trailer Bethesda hints that Elder Scroll 6 would be set in Hammerfall.
Currently, Bethesda has not unveiled the release date of the game, but we hope to see The Elder Scroll 6 at E3 2019.
