Here's an interesting little story for you. ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda, has filed a trademark for something called "Redfall". The official documentation doesn't give anything away, but it's entirely possible that this could be the name that Bethesda has gone with for The Elder Scrolls VI.

Those familiar with the long running role-playing series will know that each game has its own subtitle, which, in the mainline games, is most often the name of a place. The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim all fit the bill.

The Elder Scrolls VI: Redfall wouldn't follow this trend based on what we already know -- there isn't any known location in The Elder Scrolls lore called 'Redfall' -- but it could have something to do with the Redguards, one of main playable races in The Elder Scrolls. What's more, much speculation suggests that The Elder Scrolls VI takes place in Hammerfell, the homeland of the Redguards.

It seems like a logical conclusion to us, but what do you think? Tell us if The Elder Scrolls VI: Redfall has a ring to it in the comments section below.
