A blurb on Waterstones’ site for Elder Scrolls novel Infernal City has apparently dropped the bombshell that the next game’s set two centuries after Oblivion.

So it says: “A novel that takes places forty-five years after the Oblivion Crisis, which is the story of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion game and the expansion pack Shivering Isles. It partly bridges the gap for the next game, which is set 200 years after the Oblivion crisis.”

Or so it used to say, apparently. Looks as though someone’s done some quick editing. Thank Kotaku for spotting it.
