The Elder Scrolls 6 setting was quietly teased ages ago, and you may have missed it

I would argue that The Elder Scrolls VI is very nearly the most anticipated video game of all time, second only to GTA VI.

We know that the follow-up to Skyrim is currently in development, but beyond that? The RPG remains a mystery. Where, exactly, in the vast realm of Tamriel will the game be set? Skyrim let players loose in the continent's titular wintry region, while Morrowind gave us an unforgettable glimpse at the Vvardenfell province.

We can assume The Elder Scrolls VI is taking us somewhere new, but where? Well, as it turns out, Bethesda may have teased this very thing ages ago, and you might just have missed it.

We're headed back in time a bit here, mind you, but in January 2021 a brief teaser released by Bethesda celebrating The Elder Scrolls dropped a pretty substantial hint that The Elder Scrolls VI will take place in the Hammerfell region.

Hammerfell is a massive, mountainous region that borders Skyrim and Cyrodill (which is where Oblivion took place). Home of the Redguards, Hammerfell boasts vast stretches of desert, and plenty of green, rich grasslands. There are also multiple major cities to be found, including the port town of Rihad, which sits on the coast of the Abecean Sea to the south. There's lots to see in Hammerfell, basically.

It's worth noting that after the E3 2018 trailer fans were already convinced that Bethesda was teasing Hammerfell. But Bethesda's 2021 New Year tweet further fuelled this speculation when it showed off a map of Skyrim, along with the caption "transcribe the past and map the future". That might not seem like much to go on, but it wasn't long until fans noticed a series of strange lights on the map that all pointed to the neighbouring region of Hammerfell.

So, I'm certainly not telling you to put money on anything, but I wouldn't bet against The Elder Scrolls VI taking us on a little trip across the border to Hammerfell.
