Sony has quite an extensive set of exclusive content coming to the PS4 and PS5 consoles in 2022 and beyond.
And while some of it may have been delayed, there’s no doubt that there are plenty of titles in the pipeline that fans will be very happy with.
Third-party content also plays an integral role in keeping the PlayStation Store fresh with exciting new titles to play.
And sadly, one of the biggest and popular franchises has just confirmed that it won’t be coming back to PlayStation consoles anytime soon.
In a blow that will be bitter for many fans, Bethesda and Microsoft have confirmed that the Elder Scrolls VI will not be playable on PS4 or PS5 consoles in the future.
There was very little chance that the successor Skyrim would come to the PS4 as the hardware is now very old, but that’s not the case when it comes to the PlayStation 5.
However, Microsoft spent a huge amount of money on the purchase of Bethesda and is now able to make the studio’s biggest game console exclusives for the Xbox Series X.
In a new interview with GQ, it was confirmed by Xbox’s Phil Spencer that there were no plans to bring Elder Scrolls 6 to the PS5, telling fans:
“It’s not about punishing another platform, as I fundamentally believe that all platforms can continue to grow.
“But in order to play on Xbox, I want us to be able to bring the full package of what we have.
“And that would be true when I think of Elder Scrolls 6. It would be true if I think of one of our franchises.”
The news isn’t unexpected, and it makes a lot of business sense when you consider how thin Microsoft’s list of exclusive franchises is.
It should also be noted that when we talk about exclusives, this usually doesn’t include PC anymore, with games like Days Gone and Halo Infinite popping up on Steam without much fuss.
Elder Scrolls fans have been disappointed by the news, with some discussing how to buy an Xbox Series console to play TES6.
Elder Scrolls 6 isn’t coming to PS5
One user responded to the recent online post: “By the time ES6 comes out, Xbox Cloud Gaming will be on everything. It’s already available on Android and iOS, Chromebooks and Windows PCs. They’re going to add it to smart TVs soon, the can even be accessed through a browser on competitor consoles.
“Your friend probably already has a device that supports this. He could join gamepass and access all the Xbox stuff out there, hundreds of games.”
Others disagree with the idea that a game like Elder Scrolls 6 would help boost Xbox sales, with others adding:
“They will lose half their fan base. I’m not buying Xbox just to play es6, no matter how long I’ve waited.”
“Yeah sorry, buying an Xbox for just one game is hard for me. I’d rather buy a new PC. The Xbox as a console is a bit redundant.”
Elder Scrolls VI has not been given a release date and is not expected to appear on Xbox Series X or PC until after 2023.
