The Elder Scrolls 6 has been confirmed to be exclusive to Xbox.

The head of Xbox Phil Spencer has almost confirmed that The Elder Scrolls VI will be dedicated to the Xbox console.

In an interview with British GQSpencer said he sees the Skyrim sequel as a case similar to Bethesda’s title, Starfield, which was confirmed on the Xbox Series X / S and PC earlier this year.

At least in part, his reasoning seems to have come down to what the Xbox ecosystem can offer exclusively, such as cloud games and Xbox Live services.

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

Since Xbox acquired Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Media, its position as an exclusive candidate for The Elder Scrolls 6 has been controversial. Arguably Bethesda’s biggest franchise, much has been said about whether the Xbox can help or hinder itself by allowing the next Elder Scrolls game to be released on competing platforms.

Microsoft previously said that Bethesda games will be released on the Xbox “first, better, or best”, but Bethesda’s Todd Howard “difficult to imagine The Elder Scrolls 6 for the Xbox only. “. Now, it looks like the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction. Spencer sounds much more bullish about RPGs, which were eagerly expected to stay on a platform controlled by Microsoft.

Elsewhere in the work, Todd Howard reiterated that The Elder Scrolls 6 is still under design, but added that the ultimate goal of the game remains the same as in previous articles in the series.

“I went back and read the first Elder Scrolls review, then The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’s, then The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s. I painted a few things black, and they read the same. That’s what you mean when you go out, it feels very real. People change. Technology will change. But the ultimate goal is to make you feel like you’re being carried when you launch the game. “

Bethesda Game Studio decided to make a single, although it will still take at least a few years before we play the game, especially as Howard told us that Starfield was never made now or never. As we continue to commit, we can expect the game to follow some familiar lines-the player experience.
