Although Microsoft bought Bethesda for billions, many are hoping the Redmond firm will offer The Elder Scrolls VI on media other than Xbox Series X | S and PC. Unfortunately, mass seems to have been said, as Jeff Grubb explained on his Twitter account.
One tweet and all hopes are gone
When Microsoft announced by surprise that it was buying ZeniMax (Bethesda’s parent company) for $ 8.1 billion in September 2020, officials left doubts about whether or not Bethesda’s future productions were exclusive. Will Microsoft really take the risk of losing part of the gaming community on a highly anticipated game like The Elder Scrolls VI? According to Jeff Grubb, the answer is yes!
This claim follows a post from another user, which suggests that Microsoft is considering releasing Starfield on PlayStation 5. A guess quickly buried as well as we had explained it and that Grubb comes to reinforce with its publication, while taking the time to add that The Elder Scrolls VI will be an Xbox exclusive. A post that we can give some credit to, since Grubb has hit the mark several times in the past, for example by disclosing in advance the date and time of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase conference during the last E3, or most recently with his revelations on the remake of Dead Space.
Although Jeff Grubb is very reliable, this information should not be taken at face value, it is not official. Either way, the subject will be cleared up in a few years when The Elder Scrolls VI surfaces. Waiting for, Starfield releases for Xbox Series X | S and PC on November 11, 2022.
No. And also Elder Scrolls 6 is planned as Xbox exclusive as well. https://t.co/K4VCC5DrXL
