Is 'RedFall' The Next Elder Scrolls?

On September 10, Zenimax, Bethesda's parent company, applied for a trademark entitled "Redfall" which mentions both console and PC platforms. Currently there is no official word on what this means, but that hasn't stopped speculation that it could involve the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls VI, which was briefly announced at E3 2018.

The title is tantalizingly easy to connect to the Redguards, a race in the Elder Scrolls universe that inhabit Hammerfell. Though Hammerfell has been suggested as a possible next setting, it is still possible that this trademark could be for an entirely different game altogether. 

However, it wouldn't be the first time a Bethesda game was leaked via trademark. Starfield, also revealed officially this summer, was first trademarked in 2013 and caused a similar stir. 

Bethesda will be releasing The Elder Scrolls: Blades, a Skyrim-flavored mobile game, this year, but the buzz surrounding the "Redfall" trademark shows how eagerly fans are awaiting the next full title in the Elder Scrolls series.
