The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced back at E3 2018.At the time, it was assumed to be in development for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.Then in September 2020, Microsoft announced the acquisition of Bethesda, the makers and IP holders of [The Elder Scrolls](/category/the-elder-scrolls/) .Since then, there’s been a giant question mark over the game’s release and whether or not it will be console exclusive to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.You’d expect Microsoft would make it definitively clear whether or not The Elder Scrolls 6 will be an Xbox console exclusive, but so far, it hasn’t, giving some [PlayStation](/category/playstation-generic/) fans hope that the next installment in the RPG series will be a multi-platform release like a couple of other Xbox games.
That said, if you’re a PlayStation fan still holding out hope that The Elder Scrolls 6 will come to PS5, it may be time to finally let go of this wishful thinking.According to a new report, The Elder Scrolls 6 will follow in the footsteps of Starfield and be an Xbox console exclusive.
The report comes the way of industry insider and leaker Jeff Grubb , who doesn’t say much but notes the plan right now is that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be an Xbox console exclusive.As you may know, Grubb is widely held as a reputable and reliable insider.However, it’s worth noting his Bethesda information has been wrong in the past.Most notably, he had incorrect information about Starfield and its release date.This doesn’t discount this new information, but it’s worth taking into consideration.At the moment of publishing, none of the implicated parties have responded to the report in any capacity, and we don’t expect this to change, but if it does, we will be sure to update the story accordingly.As for when The Elder Scrolls 6 will release, Grubb doesn’t say.
Back in 2020, Bethesda confirmed the game was “years away,” and at the moment, this is the most recent update.[0comments] For more coverage on The Elder Scrolls 6 — including all of the latest news, all of the latest rumors and reports, and all of the latest speculation — click here ..
