Some eagle-eyed trademark observers have noticed something interesting involving the upcoming Elder Scrolls VI. If a trademark filing is to be believed, the sixth main entry in the Elder Scrolls series will be subtitled ‘Redfall’.
What does it mean?
A few days ago, Newsweek shared a juicy bit of info about The Elder Scrolls VI. According to them, ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda, filed a trademark for ‘Redfall’ on September 10. All we know so far is that it’s for a “computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles”.
What, if anything, does this mean? We honestly have little idea, so far. However, some are guessing this might have to do with the Redguard race from The Elder Scrolls. It could also have something to do with Daggerfall, the name of a region in the world of Elder Scrolls and the subtitle of the second game in the main series. There’s plenty of discussion online as to the name’s meaning.
Of course, this could all be for nothing. Game publishers are known to trademark things that never come to fruition. On the other hand, we learned about Bethesda’s upcoming release Starfield through trademark filing, so there is a precedent.
The Elder Scrolls VI does not yet have a release date.
