The next Elder Scrolls will be exclusive to Xbox.

Bethesda Game Studios

The Elder Scrolls VI is one of Bethesda Game Studios’ most anticipated titles. Unfortunately, it does not come to the PlayStation platform.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed the Xbox and PC exclusivity for the next Elder Scrolls game in an interview with GQ on Monday. It will be the second major Bethesda game to come exclusively to Microsoft platforms after the gaming company was acquired by the tech giant last year for $ 7.5 billion. The first was the sci-fi game Starfield, coming out in 2022.

“It’s not about punishing any other platform, just as I basically believe that all platforms can continue to grow,” Spencer told GQ. “But to be on the Xbox, I want us to be able to bring the whole package of what we have. And that would be true when I think of Elder Scrolls VI. That would be true when I thinking of any of our franchises. “

Although Microsoft owns Bethesda, there were questions about when the exclusivity would take effect. Deathloop, released in September for the PlayStation and Xbox platforms, appears to be the latest game under the Bethesda umbrella to appear on a non-Microsoft-owned platform.

As for when Elder Scrolls VI will be released, Spencer had no answer. On Monday, he was a part of Xbox 20th Anniversary Livestream, where the big revelation was early release of Halo Infinite multiplayer.
