“Granny Skyrim” Shirley Curry won’t be appearing in the upcoming “Starfield,” according to her recent statement. Curry, known to the community for her delightful Skyrim videos, will only appear in The Elder Scrolls 6, skipping the stars entirely.
Shirley Curry, known as Skyrim Grandma, is a YouTuber who rose to fame after uploading some Skyrim videos that went viral unexpectedly online. She currently has over 1.22 million subscribers on the platform. She loved the Elder Scrolls series and gained so much attention online that Todd Howard even promised to make a character based on Granny Skyrim in The Elder Scrolls 6 after some fans started a petition.
Now, Grandma Skyrim herself has confirmed that despite her participation in the upcoming The Elder Scrolls 6, she will not be appearing in any capacity. In a Reddit post, a screenshot can be seen in which she confirms that she probably won’t be playing Starfield at all. In her own channel before, she said that the space setting of the starry sky is not as attractive to her as the fantasy setting of the world of the Elder Scrolls, and she will continue to wait for the next TES. Shirley even told Todd Howard to hold on to TES 6 some time ago because she wanted to get a chance to see the game before she passed away, as she is now 87 years old.
Discussion of whether Skyrim Grandma will appear in Starfield started when some fans spotted a character named “Grandma” in a scene during the Xbox Games Showcase’s Starfield Direct and thought it might be her. However, based on her remarks, this shouldn’t be considered an official cameo, but more like a possible Easter egg.
Despite Shirley’s lack of enthusiasm for Bethesda’s upcoming sci-fi role-playing game, the game sold reasonably well ahead of its release. Despite being months away from release, Starfield is already nearing the top of the Steam sales charts. The game outsold even the recently released Street Fighter VI. The main reason for this hype is that Bethesda hasn’t released any single-player role-playing games since 2015’s Fallout 4. Add in the fact that the promise of StarCraft is bigger than any other game the company has made before, and fans are eager to see what Bethesda has ready to deliver.
Starfield launches September 6 for PC and Xbox Series X/S.
