Netflix seems to have gotten a taste for it, because apparently with The Elder Scrolls another big game brand is now to get its own TV series.
With Castlevania or The Witcher, Netflix has already had excellent experience in terms of series implementations of well-known game brands. Ubisoft’s heavyweight Assassin’s Creed is next, as is known, but another major fantasy franchise could follow in the footsteps of The Witcher: The Elder Scrolls.
Corresponding rumors are now making the rounds in the film and TV industry. As industry insiders report, Netflix is now planning a series for the 30-year Bethesda franchise. The brand includes extremely successful role-playing games such as Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. The longstanding MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online is currently up to mischief and The Elder Scrolls VI is one of the most anticipated video games of all.

Daniel Richtman, usually a well-informed insider in the film and TV business, now reports that Bethesda is pushing forward considerations to bring the franchise to Netflix. According to the will of the streaming service, a series implementation should then be just as large and successful as that of The Witcher from 2019.
The series is said to be a direct adaptation of the version of Tamriel from the many video games. Official confirmation that the series will actually be produced is still pending from both Bethesda and Netflix.
However, the topic should not be completely out of thin air, especially since Bethesda itself is open to such implementations. Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, the co-creators of the HBO hit series “Westworld”, for example, are already producing a Fallout series for Amazon Prime Video. We’ll keep you up to date!
