Elder Scrolls V in Development, Direct Sequel to Oblivion

According to Eurogamer Denmark, Bethesda is hard at work developing The Elder Scrolls V, which is said to be a direct sequel to the 2006 RPG masterpiece, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Eurogamer asked the author of the Eurogamer Denmark article, Kristian West, to translate the article:

This source not only confirmed that the game is in current production, but also spoke briefly about the content – with fantasy-sounding phrases like Dragon Lord, something with The Blades – and that voice acting for the characters in the game is currently happening in the weeks to follow.

The same source confirmed, with official game documents in hand, that this will be the chronological sequel to what happened in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which is the latest game in the now 16-years-old Elder Scrolls saga and by itself one of the better RPGs for PC and consoles.

The sequel to Oblivion is coming, we can hereby confirm without hesitation. It’s been a while since 2006, hasn’t it?

Discussing an undisclosed game, which is thought to be the new Elder Scrolls V, during an interview, executive producer Todd Howard told Eurogamer a few things that will surely excite Elder Scrolls fans:

“Fallout 3 technically does a lot more than Oblivion. The new stuff is an even bigger jump from that.

I can say it is on the existing platforms, which we’re really happy with. You almost feel like you have a new console when you see the game.”

Like the Adoring Fan is a little too excited to follow your Oblivion character around and allows players to abuse him anyway they see fit, I’m a little too excited about this bit of news.
