The Elder Scrolls 6 is still a very long way off but fans of the franchise and Skyrim specifically, does have something to look forward to. Sure, Bethesda isn’t sharing a lot of details about the game yet and we won’t see The Elder Scrolls 6 at E3 2019. However, Bethesda has shared one awesome detailed about the game. The loveable Shirley Curry, also known as the Skyrim Grandma, will be an NPC in the game.
For those who don’t know, Shirley Curry is an 82-year-old grandmother and avid Skyrim fan, with nearly 500,000 subscribers on YouTube. There was even a petition started by her fans to have her immortalized in The Elder Scrolls 6 with nearly 50,000 signatures. Bethesda has listened and revealed that the Skyrim Grandma will, in fact, be immortalized in their game.
