Shirley Curry, recognized within the gaming group as Skyrim Grandma, goes to be an NPC in The Elder Scrolls 6.
Announced in Bethesda’s 25 years of The Elder Scrolls anniversary video, the devs reference the petition to “Immortalize Shirley Curry as an NPC, unique weapon, or location in The Elder Scrolls VI,” that was began up after Curry left a heart-wrenching touch upon a YouTube video discussing The Elder Scrolls 6 launch date (by way of Eurogamer).
“Well, I guess that puts the nail in my coffin, literally!!! When Skyrim 6 comes out I’ll be 88!! So I probably won’t get to play it, so i’m going to quite dreaming for it!!!” Curry wrote. The remark was picked up by Reddit, and so the petition was born, and it’s hurtling in direction of its 50ok objective, even after the announcement, with greater than 49,200 signatures on the time of writing.
“This means a lot to me, because I would be extremely happy to know that somebody else was playing with my character in a future Elder Scrolls game,” Curry says within the anniversary video.
Well, since they made the announcement at this time about me, as a personality within the subsequent TES game …I can present my favourite factor I introduced away with me!!! 🥰 pic.twitter.com/lIoEJ3tz83

Howard referred to as her go to “a huge, huge treat” for everybody on the studio, including that “everyone was super excited” to see her.
The final participant immortalised in an Elder Scrolls game was Oblvion fan, Erik West, who handed away after his battle with most cancers earlier than Skyrim’s launch. West bought to go to Bethesda in May 2011, and the studio paid homage to him by including Erik the Slayer to the game – a callback to his on-line identify, Immok the Slayer.
Feel free to hitch me as I proceed to quietly sob for the following couple of minutes.
Bethesda has confirmed that neither The Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield will be shown this year at E3 2019.
