Bethesda to do 'Skyrim' remastered edition instead of new sequel?

The hearsays about the remastered edition of "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" starts to emerge when Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 season begins.

According to the rumors, the announcement will happen at E3 this year - in a scant couple of days, at the Bethesda conference. It is reported that the remastered version of "Skyrim" would include mod support, all DLC packs, as well as an overall visual improvement. In addition, since "The Elder Scrolls: Online" was released recently, the game developer may consider not overshadowing it with a new sequel now.

The rumor of "Elder Scrolls VI" sparked when the Bethesda's vice president for public relations and marketing Pete Hines said in an interview with The Telegraph that the video game is actually under development by their team.

After his comments were made about a possible Bethesda remaster now in the works, a new pre-order listing for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has popped up online.

"It's rare to have franchises like the ones we have and to have people joking about 'when is Skyrim 2 coming out?' The reason they say that is because generally speaking, that's what you'd be getting with another publisher in charge". Unfortunately, the company has mentioned that they now have no plans to do so within the year.
