Is Redfall next chapter for ESO?

Recently a trademark came out from ZoS for Redfall. So far in ESO we have had chapters for DC, EP and now AD with Summerset. Would Redfall be the next location for ESO? If not, Where would the next chapter take place?

    We seem to be getting some hints at a Skyrim zone/chapter at some point. Western Skyrim does have some interesting lore that was put in place during ESO. All of Skyrim is in civil war right now between the east and west. Can't remember the specifics off the top of my head of who was involved though but I know Jorrun came to be High King because of the war and a lot of people in the west don't like that.

    Also on the crown store we can see Riverwood as the backdrop for the Riverwood Chicken Pet. Could have been some devs just playing around with assets already created or a large hint at a Whiterun Hold DLC.

    However to be called Redfall? I doubt it would be called that. I saw some speculation Redfall might be the trademark for TES:VI since some people think it will be in Hammerfell and redguards are in Hammerfell so Redfall.

    But if it was TES:VI then Bethesda would have registered the trademark, not Zenimax Online.

    However I was thinking the same thing: Redguard + Hammerfell = Redfall? Various people have insisted that the next expansion will be in a DC area since we've had ones in EP and AD areas. I'm not sure ZOS are thinking of it that way, but if that's the case then southern Hammerfell is pretty much the only option.

    Also as far as I'm aware the rumours that western Skyrim will be next are based on nothing more than the fact that the background to the datamined crown store chicken image (the white one, not the black one in the Hollowjack crates) looks like part of Riverwood. But that's concept art rather than a screenshot, so it doesn't have to show a location which actually exists either in-game or in content being developed.

    Personally, I think that Redguard+Hammerfall=Redfall is just really lazy naming.

    I have heard a theory that redfall could be TES VI and the name would come from REDguard and DaggerFALL instead of Hammerfell.

    Well, I guess that's a better name that TES VI: Illiac Bay or TES VI: Daggerfall 2.0 because the original Daggerfall covered all of Illiac bay as well.

    Also keep in mind that ZOS has been hiring mobile designers/programmers for awhile now... and have been pushing how they are working on ESO along with "several unannounced projects".

    As already said, the trademark is not from ZOS, but from Zenimax Media. That could be for any game from any studio.

    That is not the only new trademark that ZM has rolled out in the last little while that covers online games.

    It could also be a reference to whether the Redguards will fall to the Aldmeri Dominion - after all the events of Skyrim severely weakened the Empire (regardless of who won the civil war), and the Redguards of Hammerfell were the only ones who had any real success resisting the Dominion during the Great War, so with the Empire completely unable to come to their aid (if they even would otherwise), the Dominion might be advancing their agenda and seeking revenge at the same time by invading (again).

    But yeah, I strongly suspect this trademark is for TES:VI, not for ESO.

    I think what we need to decide this debate is for a moderator to come on here and close the thread down because it has nothing to do with ESO ;)

    ZOS doesn't do any trademark registering.

    ZeniMax Media Inc. does. Even Bethesda Softworks is registered to ZeniMax Media Inc.

    The only product line Bethesda Softworks LLC registers in its own name is Fallout.

    I could have sworn the article I read specifically said Zenimax Online. But maybe it was a mistake, it wasn't a site I normally visit so I can't be sure they're reliable.

    If it was Zenimax Media who registered it then it could be almost anything. Including a brand new game unrelated to anything they've released before.

    I just searched the trade mark database, it's ZeniMax Media Inc. that registered Redfall.

    If i had to guess i would say its either a new betheseda game, a codename for an upcoming game, or its the name of TES 6.

    My guess is that its a codename for tes 6. and it makes sense because the "trailer" for tes 6 was in hammerfell or high rock. But regardless it was in the iliac bay. Which could, in theory, be both hammerfell and daggerfall since both are in the iliac bay. Red for redguards (from hammerfell) and fall for daggerfall.

    They probably did this to either throw people off or give them a hint at what tes 6 is going to be about. You never know with game devs, esp betheseda and todd howard.

    Probably just another event like Summerfall. I wouldn't get too excited

    Per the Lanham Act, you register trademarks specifically for use in commerce. People get excited because they're usually indicative of a soon-to-be-released product.

    AFAIK, High King Svargrim still maintains West-Side Skyrim (with at least the Easternmost Reach ruled by the Reachmen.)
    West-Skyrim would be interesting just to see the opposing thoughts and perspective against the Skald King's rule, and opinions of the war from those that aren't as involved (kind've like the Gold Coast excluding itself from the rest of Cyrodiil.) Bonus points from me if Whiterun was once again the middle ground between Svargrim and Jorunn's conflicting rule of the province (much like how it was divided down to it's citizens during the events of TESV.)

    A Chapter based around at least Whiterun Hold, Riverwood, whatever Helgen is at this point and maybe even the Pale might be fun. But that said, many (including myself) would prefer Elsweyr next given how much of Skyrim is already in ESO.

    Someone on the Bethsoft forum (I think.... been a while now) did some comparisons of the TES VI trailer to various areas, and came to the conclusion the trailer was filmed in High Rock.

    Could this part of the Summerset event stream be a hint at Redfall? With what Lawrence says, it sounds like a hint to something bigger
