Bethesda is on full throttle for Fallout 4 VR, but an analyst believes there could be more coming. Seeing Fallout 5 and The Elder Scrolls 6 seems a bit off though anything is possible.

‘Fallout 5’ Stealing ‘Fallout 4 VR’ Spotlight

The first one has to do with a possible Fallout 5 release as called by analyst Michael Pachter, Game Industry reported. The focus right now is Fallout 4 VR, meaning the fifth installment may not make sense. The VR move is a key move, which could dictate the future of its IPs, including Fallout 5 and The Elder Scrolls 6.

While it has been quite some time before the VR technology version came into the scene, anything is still possible. But when one thinks about the game development angle, the available manpower may not be enough to roll out a fifth installment.

Rather, it may be better to speculate Fallout 5 in 2018, more than enough time for Bethesda to figure out if their virtual reality technology initiative got anywhere.

‘The Elder Scrolls 6’ Minor Stages Make It Unrealistic

Moving ahead, The Elder Scrolls 6 is believed to be in the minor stages. Hence, that does not indicate a sixth installment is ready to come out in 2017.

Pachter is basing most of his calls on Bethesda making surprise calls when it comes to game title releases. Fallout 4 is a clear example. It was announced recently and released a few months later, Express reported.

Still, it doesn’t add up with Bethesda having a lot on its plate. There is The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition that also came out complete with bugs and all.

Speculating on possible game titles from Bethesda is plausible but nevertheless unrealistic at this point. Surprises could come, but seeing how huge the following is for both The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series is concerned, these don’t seem like logical things to expect in 2017.
