Skyrim Anniversary Edition is Going to Fuel Elder Scrolls 6 Rumors for Years

On November 11, gamers the world over are going to be diving into Skyrim for the umpteenth time this past decade. The game is turning 10 years old, and Bethesda is celebrating with a new re-release known as the Anniversary Edition. Beyond general improvements for new hardware and the like, it’s also coming with a ton of Creation Club content and more—ranging from Fishing and contests with it to new weapons and more.

The thing is, it’s not just that. Skyrim Anniversary Edition is going a little bit further by adding new quest lines related to Oblivion and Morrowind, with the former focusing on the Mythic Dawn trying to open a new Oblivion gate and the latter somehow dealing with the Tribunal. These are clear nods to past games, but there’s a solid chance that there are nods/changes for future games too.

As aforementioned, several gamers have already played Skyrim multiple times, often finding something new in each playthrough. That aspect has given Skyrim much more longevity than other titles, and that may be something the Anniversary Edition plays with. Fans know already about some new quests, but that poses the question of what they don’t know yet. For example, if players walk into a city and see a new marking on a wall, they may go check the older versions of the game, and it may not be there.

Boom, that’s an instant Elder Scrolls 6 rumor. It may not be as simple or as obvious as that, but the more tweaks and changes that are made, the more fans will see Elder Scrolls 6 rumors in it. It’s even possible that there are allusions to other Bethesda games like Starfield, but they are likely to be hidden rather well. After all, slipping in an Easter egg like this should be subtle and not blown up into a big quest line. But, because these new quest lines do exist, other content being added to the game like this seems pretty likely.

Elder Scrolls 6 fans look for rumors, teases, and Easter eggs in everything, with Starfield’s trailer even seemingly hinting at TES6’s location. If one trailer did that, then a full re-release is bound to have something for fans to look for no matter how big or small it is.

Of course, there are important Skyrim things to do too, such as building homes, stopping Alduin, fighting the first Dragonborn, dealing with werewolves and vampires, and joining any number of the various factions in Skyrim. But, Skyrim Anniversary Edition is also essentially a free-for-all Easter egg hunt, so it’ll be interesting to see if there are any small changes fans discover in the days, weeks, or even months after release.

Skyrim Anniversary Edition releases November 11 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
