Shirley Curry, 86, a popular Elder Scrolls figure known as Skyrim Grandma on YouTube, has joined the chorus of people pleading with Bethesda to release The Elder Scrolls VI.
Curry was asked what she would say to Bethesda director Todd Howard if she had the chance in an interview with Katharine Castle from Rock Paper Shotgun. Hilariously, Curry advised him to move more quickly on the development front.
She said; “I’d ask him to give me a cool game, and I’d ask him to hurry up and finish The Elder Scrolls VI. I want to play it before I die.”
Many Curry’s fans can relate to his desperation. After all, Bethesda announced it won’t be available until after Starfield, whose launch was initially scheduled for November 2022 but has since been pushed back somewhat until at least mid-2023. Her age and the fact that she will be permanently memorialized in the game by being included as a non-playable character are the two reasons she wants the Elder Scrolls VI developers to start the process in her case, though.
People telling her they started playing the game because of her or took it up again because of her, which still feels unreal, is her favorite part of becoming a cult hero in the Skyrim community, according to Curry. Once The Elder Scrolls VI is released and includes her character, there is a significant probability that effect will increase. It would be the ideal means for her to make a lasting impression on the neighborhood.
