Among The Witcher, Castlevania, and the Assassin’s Creed and Resident Evil TV shows currently in production, Netflix has become a hotbed of content based on the popular video game franchise. Now, new rumors suggest that this trend may continue again in a new series centered around one of the game’s most iconic fantasy properties.
According to a new report, Netflix is considering partnering with Bethesda to create a new series based on the video game The Elder Scrolls series. First launched in 1994, The Elder Scrolls is one of Bethesda’s longest-running franchises, boasting outstanding entries in mainline series such as Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. When it comes to what the show involves, it will be a variety of live-action films. Netflix also wants the show to be as big as The Witcher if it bears fruit.
The rumor comes from one of Daniel Richman. In the past, Richman has proven to be a fairly reliable source of information and had a scoop in advance related to the film and television industry. Therefore, this report should definitely be received in regular salt granules, but it may have some relevance.
In terms of how Bethesda approaches this situation, it has a proven track record of showing that it may be willing to play the ball on Netflix. For those who don’t remember, Bethesda actually announced in 2020 that it is working with Amazon to create a television series based on its other major franchise, Fallout. It’s still unclear if publishers want to work with two separate streaming companies to create TV shows at the same time, but previous moves have shown that they are at least interested in exploring the territory of television a bit more. I will.
