  • The upcoming Elder Scrolls VI teaser released years ago may now be coming soon as Xbox hints at a release date.
  • According to Phil Spencer, the game will be exclusive to Xbox.
  • The move is not aimed to punish other platforms such as the PlayStation.

The Elder Scrolls 6 is coming soon and will only be available on Xbox. According to the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, the move is to push individual platforms to grow.

If you may recall, the Elder Scrolls VI teaser was released years ago, and some of its fans must have forgotten that it was even coming.

The bummer is that even with all the waiting, you may still miss out on your favourite game if you cannot access an Xbox.


There is no release date yet, and the game is currently in the production stage at Bethesda Softworks. According to Phil, the move is in no way targeting platforms such as Playstation to punish them. 

“It’s not about punishing any other platform, like I fundamentally believe all of the platforms can continue to grow. But 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. That would be true when I think about any of our franchises.”

Users took to Twitter to share their sentiments on the announcement. According to this particular user, disappointment is an understatement.

Confirmed rumors

Although Insiders had made claims before that Elder Scrolls 6 would only be an Xbox affair, no one had confirmed the rumors.

It had been announced that the game was still a long way off so it makes sense why no one has been talking about it. 

For the first time through GQ, Phil has confirmed that it is indeed true. With this news, it could possibly mean that PlayStation will continue dwindling.
