A document released as part of the FTC v. Microsoft case confirms what was long expected: The Elder Scrolls VI isn’t going to launch for a few years, and it isn’t coming to PlayStation. According to the new chart, which Microsoft produced for the FTC, the next Elder Scrolls game isn’t expected to launch until at least 2026 — something a Microsoft lawyer also mentioned in the court case. And much like Bethesda’s most recent games — Starfield and Redfall — it’ll be available on both PC and Xbox when it does launch.

In a statement about exclusivity attached to The Elder Scrolls VI section of the chart, which comes from an interview with Xbox head Phil Spencer in GQ, Spencer said,



“In order to be on Xbox, I want us to be able to bring the full complete package of what we have. And that would be true when I think about Elder Scrolls VI.”

Pretend to be shocked.

I was hopping to Starfield flop at shocking levels in sales to force MS to review these instances but that is what it is.
The chances for a PS5 version of future titles are near 0.

So another lie of Phil exposed.... he did say that it wasn't decided yet fairly recently.

Basically these studios were bought for the sole purpose of denying the PlayStation userbase access to them.

THAT is the definition of anti-consumer.
Xbox will fail soon, don't worry.

No way Todd Howard and Pete Hines like being robbed of actual revenues with this gamespass bullshit.

I’m predicting a fallout at Bethesda post Starfield launch… fucking puns 🤬… anyway they’re gonna get some form of the 343 treatment when they can’t produce due to Xbox’s trash gamepass model killing every studio they own.

They can always pivot away from day and date Triple A games on game pass if it isnt sustainable

That was what I expected... a shake up in the high execs.
But I don't think Starfield results are bad enough to that happen.

and, and, and I told them: " I haven't decided TES6 was going to be an Xbox exclusive because I care about the gamers, I am a firm believer that games should be everywhere. But that bully Jim Ryan started to laugh at me and smacked my ass and, and, and he said:

In this town I only grow when you get smaller.

I am surprised Phil Spencer keep the job this long.

To be fair if he killed off the Shitbox, hero of gaming, true hero of gamers, CEO of games title will be became his.

is because no one wants the job. And MS sees gaming with disdain.
