Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Next Elder Scrolls Potentially in 2010

With Fallout 3 out pretty much worldwide, except the UK (what the hell is up with that!?), Bethesda are already looking ahead to their next title; the newest addition to the Elder Scrolls series.

Paul Oughton, Bethesda's publishing executive told "At the moment we've got Fallout 3 for this year and potentially there's a new Elder Scrolls title in 2010."

By the looks of it, Bethesda will be rotating their killer titles in the development process, giving us Fallout and then an Elder Scrolls title after it; and then alternating till the end of time I presume.

So there you have it, more Elder Scrolls and in only a few years as well. Can't be bad.

this game is going to be great and with other games such as;
*Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
*Fallout 3

Bethesda has really set the bar high for its next title in the Elder Scrolls seris

You mean Fallout 3 wasn't Elder Scrolls V? xD

Seriously though -- Fallout is friggin' awesome. I'll be just as willing to pick up a new ES title if it does come out. ^^

Yah! More Elder Scrolls, I love Oblivion, can't wait for the next installment!

The 2010 release is fine by me, ive still got a ton of side quests to finish and weapons and stuff to find, and I want to discover all the caves and dungeons as well.

Some of you are excited but I'm slightly worried. The release of Fallout 3 shows that they didn't update their game engine. Similar graphical glitches and issues in Oblivion were evident in Fallout 3. Hopefully they'll update the engine and fix some of the issues for the next elder scrolls. P.S. I love Fallout 3 :D

I still liked alot of things in Morrowind better than Oblivion (although I couldn't play Morrowind after experiencing Oblivion - graphics-wise, it set the bar high for everything), and so far Fallout has been really good. But for the love of God, I need a breather. New games each of the last 3 weeks, Banjo in a few weeks AND an announcement of some Beatles tracks on Rock Band? I'm going to have a heart attack at this rate.

The rumor that I heard before Oblivion came out was that it was the end of Elder Scrolls... A few years later, that rumor stands corrected.

would you rather ES:V come out next year and be a disappointing, glitchy hunk of shit like fable 2? if it would stop freezing on me i could hurry up and finish it and trade the summuma bitch in. oh wait, it would still be better than that, and then they could just update with patches 'til the earth crashes into the sun.

I loved Morrowind, played it through on PC and XBOX, Oblivion was awesome. I liked how you could pretty much pick up and move just about anything in Morrowind though, candles, candelabras and all that just let you personalize your house so much more. Fallout 3 appears to be the shit, just haven't had much time while trying to finish Fable 2 on the quick to trade it in and manage my personal life. There's only so much you can play a day and maintain a happy relat

Very nice. Oblivion is one of my favorite games so I can't wait for the next Elder Scrolls. As long as it isn't a MMO like the rumours told a a long time ago.

At |26
Calm down, he was joking (I presume)
As for Fable, is your game alright, mine hasn't frozen up at all. It takes a while after exiting shops, maybe 3s, but oblivion did it to me. And Don't bitch about other games, save that for a review otherwise it makes you look like a fanboy IMO.
anyways can't wait, oblivion was amazing, hopefully they have some sort of online feature.
May have to preorder this
