The Elder Scrolls V Less Than a Year Away

We all knew that this title was inevitable. We just didn’t know it was coming so soon!

Bethesda Softworks yesterday announced at the Spike Video Game Awards that its follow up to the popular The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is indeed coming, despite two Fallout games being completed since the last title in the franchise. The Elder Scrolls V, titled Skyrim, is meant to be a direct sequel to Oblivion, taking place in the chilly Tamriel province of Skyrim. While details are currently scarce, we do know from a previous interview with IGN that the title will not use the consistently problematic Gamebryo engine.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will hit shelves on the redundant date of November 11th, 2011.

    Its about time! It was rumored that they where coming to E3, but when they never showed I thought maybe the project was canned.

    Technically, Obsidian developed Fallout: New Vegas. But I get your point.

    From what I understand, they began working on this immediately after Fallout 3 shipped.

      The current rumor on the title is that they’ve been already working on it for the past two years, but I didn’t include that to avoid it being misconstrued as fact.

      It would make sense though, figuring the company hasn’t really developed anything since Fallout 3 (New Vegas, Wet, and *shudder* Rogue Warrior were only published by them)
