Yesterday's Microsoft and Bethesda conference brought a trailer for Starfield, the new IP from the studio that gave us Skyrim, among others. The trailer revealed something about the upcoming game, but it's quite possible that it also had a second meaning. Fans noticed a strange scratch on the cockpit of a spaceship, which may reveal the setting of the sixth installment of The Elder Scrolls series.
We're talking about the fragment which can be seen at the 1:17 mark. On the right side of the cockpit visible in the footage, under one of the bolts, there is an inconspicuous scratch. On closer inspection it looks like this:
Quite unusual, isn't it? It's certainly not an accidental scratch, as it resembles a fragment of a map. A map strikingly similar to the one presenting Iliac Bay, a body of water located between the High Rock and Hammerfell in the world of Tamriel, which is sometimes referred to as Starfall Bay. Could this be the location of The Elder Scrolls VI? Could it be that the new installment of the series will enable us to visit the areas partially known from Arena, Daggerfall and ESO?
At this moment we have only speculations. The information does not seem improbable, but approach it with caution. Microsoft is unlikely to announce TES VI in the near future - at yesterday's show, the head of the Xbox brand, Phil Spencer, only let us know that the title is still under development. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get any further information on it until E3 2022.
