Bethesda and Microsoft have been finding themselves in the middle of a neo-console war between the acquisition of Activision Blizzard and the release of Starfield.
A recent document from the FTC case attempting to block the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard was released that Phil Spencer used during his testimony. This document shows recent titles from Bethesda, which Microsoft acquired in 2021, including many games that were being planned and released alike.
This chart showed whether or not cross-console play was integral, whether they were already existing IPs, whether they were on PlayStation Consoles, and whether they were multiplayer or single-player games. Notably, Elder Scrolls 6 is listed near the end of the document, with the available consoles only listing Xbox and PC. There are also reports it won’t arrive until at least 2026.
While not an outright confirmation that Elder Scrolls 6 will be skipping out on PlayStation consoles, there is a recent trend that any titles produced under the Microsoft banner have been only available on platforms in which Microsoft has a significant stake.
