Publicly, Microsoft has been quite coy on the future of The Elder Scrolls and what platforms any future releases will land on. Part of that is because the sixth entry is so far away at this stage, but also, the team is still saying it will look at upcoming Xbox exclusivity on a "case-by-case basis" - hinting that some titles will still launch on PlayStation. However, new FTC court documents suggest that won't be the case for The Elder Scrolls 6.
Yep, a new court doc has appeared from the ongoing Activision Blizzard investigation that basically says The Elder Scrolls 6 won't be released on PlayStation. A separate excerpt has also been spotted showing Microsoft claiming that the game "may be released only on Xbox and PC". The two are viewable down below:
Just last week, Xbox's Phil Spencer reiterated that the team plans to look at each first party release as it comes, so plans like the ones for TES 6 may not be set in stone just yet. Still, it looks unlikely that the next mainline Elder Scrolls game will hit PlayStation platforms at this stage.
Outside of Bethesda and its IP, Microsoft is of course still trying to purchase Activision Blizzard and its respective franchises. At the time of writing this acquisition is still being worked on, as Xbox continues to remedy the deal to suit the likes of the UK CMA and other regulatory bodies.
