The Elder Scrolls VI: Anticipated Release in 2028 with Mysterious Platform

The Elder Scrolls VI: Release not before 2028 and platform unknown

The release of The Elder Scrolls VI is more than five years away, according to Xbox division boss Phil Spencer. He also does not specify which platforms the game will appear on. Due to the long development time, the title could potentially only be available on the next generation of consoles, rumored to be released in 2028 by both Sony and Microsoft.

The Elder Scrolls VI was announced in 2018 at the E3 games fair, which was canceled this year due to lack of interest. This information comes from the ongoing negotiations of the $69 billion Activision deal in the United States. IGN reports that Spencer avoided questions about the game’s Xbox exclusivity and that it could potentially bypass Xbox Series X/S and Playstation 5 entirely.

There was confusion regarding the role-playing game in the process, as Spencer stated in an affidavit, according to IGN, that he couldn’t remember his announcement in November 2021 that The Elder Scrolls VI would be an Xbox-exclusive title. The game is being developed by Bethesda, which was acquired by Microsoft in March 2021 with the purchase of the parent company ZeniMax.

During the negotiations, Spencer explained that Microsoft decided to acquire ZeniMax when there were concerns that the game “Starfield” may not be available on the Xbox. The sci-fi role-playing game is now an Xbox exclusive, along with PC, after facing several delays and is set to release in September this year. These exclusive games were also the focus of the FTC’s lawsuit against Microsoft.

Games from Xbox Game Studios regularly appear on Game Pass at no additional cost, and a recent price increase was announced for the subscription service.
