the confirmation that PS5 gamers dreaded the most has just fallen

Since its announcement at E3 2018, The Elder Scrolls VI spills a lot of ink. Although the game is not expected for several years, and little information about it has been disclosed, the next installment of the popular Bethesda franchise continues to intrigue. Only, While the question of exclusivity has been pending since the studio’s takeover last March, the answer would be obvious if Phil Spencer is to be believed.

a confirmation that had to fall

With The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim Anniversary Edition, Bethesda offers both PS5 players and Xbox Series players to discover the new edition of its game on the occasion of its tenth anniversary. A godsend that will no longer be relevant from Starfield, Bethesda’s next game. A space RPG planned for the end of 2022 which must still unveil its gameplay. But what fans of The Elder Scrolls wait impatiently, it’s the after-Starfield. And for good reason, it is synonymous with a new opus. Although The Elder Scrolls VI has been confirmed by Bethesda, there is still a long way to go before a possible exit can be seen.

Several years will pass by then, leaving plenty of time for Activision and Electronic Arts to offer us many versions of their annuals. Call of Duty and FIFA, Blizzard to go out Diablo IV and Nintendo, the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as a possible Switch Pro, whose presence continues to be singled out by new regular reports, although the Japanese manufacturer still denies its existence.

a The Elder Scrolls VI which should thus embark us on the side of Lenclume, native land of the Redguards, encountered several times over the course of the saga. A project surrounded by mysteries, the title of which emerges here and there, through interviews similar to the one recently conducted by Phil Spencer in the columns of British GQ, the British branch of the magazine.

Asked about the takeover of ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Game Studios, Spencer, the man at the head of Xbox, expanded on the case The Elder Scrolls VI and above all, its possible exclusivity. Since the takeover, it seems obvious that Microsoft will keep its exclusivity, by targeting it both for its Xboxes and for the PC. However, no confirmation has been communicated by Microsoft, Xbox or Bethesda, so far.

Unfortunately for PS5 gamers, Spencer sees the exclusivity Starfield in the same way as that of The Elder Scrolls VI. And earlier in the year, Starfield was confirmed as an Xbox Series / PC Exclusive. You would have understood it, The Elder Scrolls VI will indeed be an Xbox Series / PC exclusive, a confirmation that may still hurt the morale of fans of the franchise on PlayStation consoles.

This is not about punishing another platform, as I fundamentally believe that all platforms can continue to grow. But in order to be on Xbox, I want us to be able to bring the full set of what we have. And that’s the case when I think of Elder Scrolls VI. That would be the case when I think of any of our franchises.

It remains to be seen if this new exclusive will bring more players to the Xbox ecosystem. With the ever-growing list of Xbox Game Studios and an ever-more enticing Game Pass catalog, Xbox is reviving its image, tarnished by excellent Sony exclusives.
