Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls series is one of the most popular RPG franchises in the world. Encompassing the massive fantasy continent of Tamriel, The Elder Scrolls have covered many major regions and provinces before, such as Morrowind, Cyrodiil in Oblivion, and most famously, Skyrim. However, games like The Elder Scrolls Online have also explored other untouched aspects of Tamriel, like the Altmer-populated Summerset Isles. Given what we know of each game's location, though, and putting together the puzzle pieces of the announcement trailer, can we deduce where The Elder Scrolls 6 will take place? Let's present a few likely locations, looking at environment, lore, and what would generally make sense.

Before we go any further, let's assume we know the timeline. The first four games in The Elder Scrolls series all took place in a few short decades near the tail-end of the Third Era before Skyrim made the 200-year jump into the Fourth Era. So assuming we're still in the Fourth Era, we predict that the sixth game might take place close to Skyrim's timeline, which is the 201st year. That way, the repercussions of what transpires in Skyrim - be in the dragon resurgence or civil war - can be felt leading into the next title.
