Oblivion Special Edition: Has Bethesda Gone Too Far?

By  | 

The pain that comes with waiting for Elder Scrolls 6 is slowly kicking into our systems and this is especially when Bethesda keeps on avoiding questions on the sequels while showing commitment to port Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim to every platform available.

We personally thought that the pain will be ending at E3 this weekend but a new leak has surfaced online to rub salt in our wounds. The leak came on SteamDB and it highlights on an unnamed upcoming DLC for Elder Scrolls 4 Oblivion.

Oblivion is a game that is about 12-years of age right now and it has been a very long time since the title received any form of updates from Bethesda. This is why we expect the leaked DLC to bring visual updates for Oblivion hence making it right to describe as a mild remastered called Oblivion Special Edition. There’s just no other explanation for it.

This would mean that Elder Scrolls 6’s development will be delayed further and if that’s not bad enough, Bethesda can go crazy and try top port Oblivion Special Edition over to every platform available. That would be nightmarish and we can only hope that it won’t be the outcome at E3.

    I want to quickly point out that Todd Howard himself said they can’t make The Elder Scrolls 6 yet. I’m going to borrow a quote from an interview with Todd Howard (https://www.pcgamer.com/the-elder-scrolls-6-is-in-development-todd-howard-confirms/) where he says, “We think very long term. We’re not a developer that’s going to rush something like this out. Any of our games. So when you think about, what is the future of that kind of game, we have a pretty good idea of what it would be, and it’s just going to take technology and time that, really, we don’t have necessarily right now.” The development of TES 6 can’t be delayed if they can’t even achieve what they are going to do with it.
