Some readers might not be familiar with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but the true fans are still awaiting the sequel.  The entire Elder Scrolls series has been around since 1994, which is about one game per 4.4 years.  Considering that Skyrim came out in 2011, it is practically overdue for a next game.  The developers of the action role-playing open world video game, Bethesda Game Studios, were quite busy with Fallout 4, but there are rumors that Skyrim 2 or The Elder Scrolls VI is on the way.  This is what is known about The Elder Scrolls 6 Release Date, with a possible tie-in to Falllout.

Some readers might not be familiar with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but the true fans are still awaiting the sequel.  The entire Elder Scrolls series has been around since 1994, which is about one game per 4.4 years.  Considering that Skyrim came out in 2011, it is practically overdue for a next game.  The developers of the action role-playing open world video game, Bethesda Game Studios, were quite busy with Fallout 4, but there are rumors that Skyrim 2 or The Elder Scrolls VI is on the way.  This is what is known about The Elder Scrolls 6 Release Date, with a possible tie-in to Fallout.

A recent article from The Master Herald has stated that Bethesda Studios is learning from Fallout 4, and attempting to create a "better and more comprehensive dialogue system."   Some critics have stated that Fallout 4 has an unimaginative story and troublesome user interface, but The Elder Scrolls VI could be quite different. 

As it stands, Bethesda Studios released The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited with a lot of bugs and glitches in it, and it didn't satiate Skyrim fans desire for a follow-up for the game.  For this reason, there is a lot of pressure on Bethesda to make a really good Elder Scrolls VI game with the huge success of Skyrim

There is at least one Easter Egg within Fallout 4 that reference the next Elder Scrolls Game.  Gamerant notes that there is a sample of local plant life known as "Experimental Plant" that looks to be related to the Skyrim in-game item known as Nirnroot.  After all, the experimental plant grows near water and has restorative powers.  Some have been saying that the evidence of this plant shows that The Elder Scrolls and Fallout take place in the same universe.

Considering Skyrim is medieval in its setting and Fallout is post-apocalyptic and semi-futuristic, that is quite interesting.  However, these gaming properties need to stay within their respective universe, and the Easter Egg from Fallout 4 isn't really enough to show what will happen in the next Elder Scrolls game.  Perhaps what the Bethesda Game Studios should do is just keep making DLC (downloadable content) for Skyrim until it looks so outdated that an official sequel has to be released. 

As for the release date of The Elder Scrolls 6, there were rumors that it was going to leak during the Sony PlayStation Experience last December, but this didn't happen, according to Design and Trend.  Perhaps an initial placeholder announcement could be made at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (aka E3, a huge video game convention that takes place annually in Los Angeles).  The subtitle for The Elder Scrolls 6 could be "Argonia", but considering the tremendous success of Skyrim, it could be just called Skyrim 2.  Some say it might not be released until 2017, 2018, or even 2019, but there is no confirmation on that from the company.
