The Elder Scrolls games are synonymous with the booming sound track that all gamers have grown to know and love. If you don’t know or remember the music let me refresh your memory:
Now you have listened to the whole of that video to refresh your memory we can move on.
Sadly it seems like the composer of the music from the previous three games will not be involved with the next game. This was uncovered after Jeremy Soule, the composer, was asked many times on Twitter whether he had been asked to be a part of the next game. This is what he has replied:
As so many of my fans have asked… While I’ve not said much about this out of courtesy to Bethesda, I would never turn my back on TES, and I believe that my involvement would hinge on a creative decision on their part and where they want to take the franchise.To confirm, I am currently not involved with TES VI.
Bethesda of course unveiled Elder Scrolls VI during E3 of last year with the rolling landscape shot. This is still all that we have seen or heard about the game, we still don’t even have a estimate of a release date!
It is still clear to see the Soule has still got a huge amount of respect for Bethesda and how they are handling the series with this other post he made:
I normally mark comments I’ve read with a like, but I don’t want to appear to be taking sides in this. As Bethesda has said, TES VI is still a long ways out. My non-involvement at this stage isn’t necessarily an indicator of anything foreboding. But, whatever happens, it’s been a privilege for me to have made music for you with this series for all of these years! It’s been a joy to create these musical emotions and custom fit them into the world of The Elder Scrolls. I’m proud of the work that I’ve done and of all the artists who have made their own beautiful variations of my work such as Malukah. And most of all, I’m honoured to have seen how this music has served in ways I could never have imagined. The heartfelt stories of this music accompanying people in hospitals, weddings and even funerals, as well as the stories of how people reached to this music in times of depression or anxiety… All of this is humbling for me. Thank you and Wind Guide You!
Do you think that Bethesda can create another Elder Scrolls game and make it feel like the next game in the series without the addition of Soule?
There is of course still time for Bethesda to get him involved on the latest game – but they better get a move on if they want to get it released in the next few years!
