The Future of Elder Scrolls 6: Uncertainty Surrounds Exclusivity

The highly anticipated Xbox exclusive, Starfield, has been making waves in the gaming market, thanks to the successful partnership between Microsoft and Bethesda. With the success of Starfield, fans have been speculating about the future of Bethesda projects' exclusivity, particularly Elder Scrolls 6. However, recent statements from Xbox CEO Phil Spencer have added a new twist to the tale.

In a conversation with Bloomberg, Spencer revealed that Microsoft looks at exclusivity on a case-by-case basis. He emphasized the importance of giving players choice and options when it comes to playing and building their library of games. This stands in contrast to previous statements where Spencer claimed that Elder Scrolls 6 would be an Xbox exclusive. However, he also acknowledged that the game is still several years away, making it difficult to predict what platforms will be available at that time.

The uncertainty surrounding the exclusivity of Elder Scrolls 6 is further fueled by the statements of director Todd Howard. Howard expressed a change in confidence regarding Xbox collaboration, stating that Starfield turned out “better with the help of Microsoft.” This ambiguity in statements and the ongoing console exclusivity debate has intensified speculation among fans.

As the console rivalry continues to evolve, it is possible that the acquisition race will bring more benefits to the gaming community in the form of surprises and exciting opportunities. Only time will tell the true nature of Elder Scrolls 6's exclusivity.
