Skyrim successor exclusively for Xbox? Phil Spencer talks about the deal

Will the Skyrim successor “The Elder Scrolls 6 “Exclusively on the Xbox?

For ten years fans of the “Elder Scrolls ”Series now on a successor to the fifth part Skyrim. Apparently, fans inside the Playstation might have to wait a little longer. Because Xbox boss Phil Spencer seems to confirm the suspicion in a new interview that “The Elder Scrolls 6” will be released exclusively for your own game console and PC.

Explained in an interview with the British edition of “GQ” Spencer that he sees a similar strategy for “The Elder Scrolls 6” as for “Starfield”, which should be one of the biggest new game releases in 2022. For “Starfield”, which like the “Elder Scrolls” series was developed by Bethesda Game Studios, it is already clear that it will be released exclusively for Xbox and PC.

“It’s not about punishing other platforms”

To publish the Skyrim successor Xbox-exclusive would therefore coincide with the marketing strategy that Bethesda has been pursuing since they were taken over by Microsoft at the beginning of the year. For Phil Spencer, however, the reason is not to exclude Sony products from the lucrative game hit. Rather, the added value for the players is in the foreground that an exclusive Xbox release would offer, including cloud gaming or Xbox Live.

” It’s not about punishing other platforms, “Spencer told the GQ.” “I fundamentally believe that all platforms can grow. But to be on Xbox, I want us to be able to deliver the full package of what we have. “That applies to titles like” The Elder Scrolls 6 “as well as other series of the company.

Will there be a release for PS5 yet?

However, it does not seem completely impossible that “The Elder Scrolls 6” will still be available to PS5 players at a later date. Shortly before the takeover of Bethesda, Xbox CFO Tim Stuart announced at the Jeffries Interactive Entertainment Virtual Conference that Sony or Nintendo would not completely exclude their titles. They just want to make them available “first, better or best” on the Xbox.

Also Bethesda boss Todd Howard said in an interview with “Gamesindustry” that it was “difficult to accomplish” to bring “The Elder Scrolls 6” onto the market solely for Xbox and PC.
