Ever since Starfield, Bethesda’s 2022 sci-fi adventure, was confirmed to be an Xbox and PC exclusive at E3 2021, questions have arisen as to whether The Elder Scrolls 6 will also be absent from the PS5.

In an interview with GQ, Xbox boss Phil Spencer shed some light on the subject of The Elder Scrolls 6’s exclusivity, and it doesn’t sound too positive for fans of Sony’s current-gen machine.

“It’s not about punishing any other platform, like I fundamentally believe all of the platforms can continue to grow,” Spencer said. “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 6. That would be true when I think about any of our franchises.”

In the same interview, Bethesda game director Todd Howard didn’t add any hints as to whether or not The Elder Scrolls 6 will actually be a console exclusive for Xbox, nor if it will even release soon enough to launch on the current-gen Xbox Series X/S.
