Bethesda Trademarks Dawnguard, Rudderless Skyrim Speculation Follows
Bethesda has filed a new trademark that’s gotten tongues wagging and pundits guessing. It’s called Dawnguard, and some suspect that it may be a clue hinting at the first expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. We’re definitely due some news on that, I reckon.
Naturally, the trademark listing itself gives us nothing but vague pointlessness, stating the name is to be used in conjunction with, “computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices.”
As well as Skyrim content, some speculate it could be another mobile outing for the Elder Scrolls series, like Dawnstar. VG247 notes how the name sounds like it could be associated with the Order of the Mythic Dawn, a cult that kicked off the Oblivion crisis and has a fun little sidequest line in Skyrim. Really, this thing could be anything.
It’d be silly to blindly guess at what it might be, but why not do it anyway?
