Makes sense for them to keep it as an exclusive to be fair.

I wish they would 100% state this is the case and that would draw a line under the matter. I guess they either want to set tongues wagging every few months to stay in the news cycle OR they are waiting to see what impact Starfield has as an exclusive before they make any definitive statement.

At this point I hope it is an exclusive...it may justify my investment in an XSX as FH5 was a let down for me and I no longer have the confidence in Playground doing justice to the Fable franchise.

Why are people still asking/thinking that Microsoft bought Bethesda to continue putting their games on other platforms?

Next elder scrolls will be a launch exclusive for the next Xbox

and he should have gotten rid of 'launch' in 'launch exclusive'.

Is it me or is exclusive slowly morphing into 'console exclusive' now?
Console exclusive is a spin these companies found to make them look good. Exclusive means exactly that "exclusive "

If that 5 years old blurb the other day is true, were looking at 2026 at the earliest. By that time Series X Pro would be out and Series Y would be around the corner!

obviously.



I meant, launch exclusively on the next Xbox and not on the series consoles.
I am not sure about that; I think it's will be 'cross gen' (gets weird with streaming so talking locally running) but it's all guesses at the moment.

Yeah we’ll see. That is just my prediction by the way.

I mean.. they didn't drop all that cash on Bethesda just so they could make their heavy hitters multi-platform. Oh well... PC it is

I don't understand why people still think ES6 MAY be multiplatform? MS paid billions to acquire Bethesda and get the rights to ES. Does Sony put Horizon Zero Dawn series on Xbox? NO! Do they put Spider-Man on Xbox? NO! Do they put God of War on Xbox? NO!

Sony Ponies keep saying it's anti-consumer and not right......or that the series has always been multiplatform (it hasn't)......but when you mention those Sony exclusives then that is ok to be exclusive apparently.

Thread title got me worried.


I thought I wasn't going to enjoy playing Elder Scrolls VI in the same platform I played ES III: Morrowind, ES IV: Oblivion and ES V: Skyrim.
Which was obviously the PC.

It's on PC so its not an Xbox exclusive
You still need to use a Microsoft Windows platform to play it..............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................therefore it's still on the Microsoft platform and don't come with the BS but it will be on Steam. Because you still need Windows to run it.

Pretty sure he has already said as much before. And of course it will, they didn't buy Bethesda to not get any exclusives out of it.

I don't see it as 100% impossible that there might be a PS5 port after a significant period of exclusivity (like at least a year), but it's probably not very likely.

I love the amount of passive-aggressiveness in this thread.

Fanboys from both communities are somehow finding a way to trigger each other without getting banned and it's really entertaining.

Plain and simple, fanboys from Sony are the complete worse when it comes to this. But I forgot. Only one side can win, right?

I mean, the difference is that those franchises were CREATED as PlayStation franchises (except for Spider-Man, although this version/universe was). They were never on Xbox, so nothing has been taken away from Xbox gamers. TES was multiplatform until MS made it not so.

Edit: I meant Xbots. Gotta keep it on your classy "Ponies" level.

By the time it hits you may actually be able to buy an Xbox for actual retail price, so I'll probably bite then.
I can't skip an ES, and I'm assuming there will be some other platform exclusives I'll want to try out by that time as well.

No rush neither. We got Fable, Avowed, and Starfield coming. A plethora of top tier western RPGs. If Microsoft was smart they should lock in Baldur's Gate 3 as a timed console exclusive as well.

Would be kinda stupid for it not to be, but at the same time the opposite. They spent so much money, they may need to release it on other platforms to make for it. Either way it would make more sense for it to be XSX and PC only. Works for me, just got a 3080Ti.

Are there people that still think they spent billions to put their biggest game of 2027 on other platforms?

I didn't say every TES game ever was on PlayStation, I said the series was multiplatform until MS made it not so. Which is accurate.

It wasn't first party then, it is now. They are funding development of the game, let's see what happens with Sunset Overdrive 2 and if people still feel the same then.
