Any new release is definitely good news if you’re an avid gamer. But more often than not, you’ll find yourself browsing through announcements and predictions that turn out to be fake news.
If you’re into action-packed games, you’ve probably heard about Elder Scrolls and GTA, two games that have gained so much following from fans all over the world.
There have been rumors circling around new releases of these games and the excitement is building up for diehard fans who waited long enough for both Elder Scrolls 6 and GTA 6 to be out in the market. But are these fake news?
Elder Scrolls 6
Since a trailer highlighting Elder Scrolls 6 was released at E3 2018, Bethesda has been mum about the development or release of the latest installment of the highly successful Elder Scrolls franchise. But recently, Bethesda has released some new job vacancies, which some people think that Starfield, its upcoming RPG is already near completion and a new project will soon be in the works.
In an interview, game director Todd Howard said that Elder Scrolls 6 would have to wait until after Starfield. So if the RPG game is wrapping up, Elder Scrolls 6 could be next in the pipeline. But while the development of this game and many other installments has been confirmed, a release still isn’t possible this year or the next.
Another rumor that’s been making fans excited is the possible release of GTA 6, which follows Red Dead Redemption 2 that has been in the market for more than a year now.
But like most of these rumors, Rockstar has not yet confirmed the development or release date of the highly anticipated sixth installment from the Grand Theft Auto franchise.
According to Michael Pachter, a credible gaming analyst, a 2021 announcement and 2022 release would be the best bet for the game, as Rockstar has been developing Red Dead Online and the departure of Dan Houser from the company could cause more delays. And with Rockstar being a very secretive publisher, it hasn’t released any trailers yet, which means that GTA 6 could still be far from being developed.
Fake news are everywhere online, so the best thing for fans to do is look at the developers’ websites to see any official statements that would confirm the development or release of these iconic games.
