Bethesda and Todd Howard now have Skyrim Grandma Shirley Curry asking them to hurry up and release The Elder Scrolls 6.
86-year-old Shirley Curry may be known as the Skyrim Grandma, but she’s just as eager to move on and play the next Elder Scrolls game as everybody else.
During her own Q&A panel at PAX East, Curry was asked what she would say to Bethesda’s Todd Howard (director of both The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls 6) if he was attending.
Not only would she ask Howard to give her a ‘cool game,’ but she’d ask him to ‘hurry up and finish making Skyrim 6.’ Although she would say hello first.
Obviously, that’s not The Elder Scroll 6’s name but we all know what she meant. She got plenty of cheers from the crowd, who can clearly relate; she even added that she’d like to play the new game before she dies.
If you’re unfamiliar with Curry, she’s been making Skyrim related YouTube videos as far back as 2015 and soon became a prominent figure within the Elder Scrolls community.
The fact that she got her own panel at PAX East should demonstrate how popular she has become. She recently also broke 1 million subscribers on YouTube.
Bethesda itself has acknowledged her too and, thanks to a fan-made petition, is expected to include her as a character in The Elder Scrolls 6 whenever it does release.
Curry isn’t the only one eager to get their hands on The Elder Scrolls 6, but that’s not going to happen any time soon.
Although it was announced in 2018, Bethesda has barely mentioned it since. Recently, Howard admitted the game is still in pre-production, which implies it’s at least three years away from release.
In the meantime, Bethesda is prioritising its sci-fi role-player Starfield, which we finally got to see proper gameplay for last week.
It was meant to release this November, but Bethesda opted to push it back into the first half of 2023, along with Arkane’s co-op vampire shooter Redfall.
After The Elder Scrolls 6, Bethesda is planning to make Fallout 5. But that’s so far out at this point it may not even be this decade.
