• Microsoft announced last year its intention to acquire Zenimax Media
  • Industry insiders believe Microsoft will hold a Bethesda-themed event in March
  • The said event is rumored to be the venue for the next "The Elder Scrolls 6" announcement

As Microsoft is anticipated to hold a Bethesda-themed event this March, some industry insiders speculate that the gaming studio might use it as the platform to showcase more details about "The Elder Scrolls 6."

Video game journalist Jeff Grubb is among those who believe that Microsoft is planning to hold an event as soon as its acquisition of Bethesda's parent company Zenimax Media goes through. Unfortunately, Grubb did not share the month or specific date of when this event would take place. He also failed to mention if the event would announce new updates related to "The Elder Scrolls 6."

But Paul Thurrot, another industry insider, seemingly doubled down on Grubb's information.

On Twitter, Thurrot shared that Microsoft will hold an event on March 23 titled "What's New For Gaming." At this point, it is not certain if Grubb and Thurrot's events are related.

However, fans believe that if the rumored Microsoft and Bethesda happens, it would be the perfect venue for the Redmond-based tech giant to showcase its ownership of Bethesda's IPs, including the "Elder Scrolls 6." Bethesda's Todd Howard previously said that more updates about "The Elder Scrolls 6" will be available after the release of "Starfield."

At the time of this publication, Bethesda has not yet revealed the release window of "Starfield." The gaming studio also said in the past that it is developing the next "Elder Scrolls" title in a way that players could enjoy playing it for more than a decade. While the latest details about the game came from reliable industry insiders, fans should temper their expectations and take it with a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Boardgame" could be arriving very soon. According to PCGamer, the game is a part of the ongoing partnership between Bethesda and RPG publishers Modiphius. The said boardgame is still using crowdfunding to meet its targets.

As for its gameplay, the only information available is that it is a co-op board game available to 1-4 players. Fans of "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Boardgame" can check out Tabletop Simulator for the game's preview, which will be available before it's funded.
