Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, recently provided an interview to British GQ where he very strongly suggested that The Elder Scrolls VI will be an Xbox console exclusive. This not-so-surprising revelation comes after it was revealed a little while back that Starfield would also be an Xbox console exclusive. And all of this comes after the fact that Microsoft owns Bethesda, so none of this should come as any surprised to literally anybody.

Spencer suggests that it just comes down to what the Xbox ecosystem can provide for its exclusives. This includes stuff like Xbox Game Pass, cloud gaming, the Xbox Live service, and more.

"It’s not about punishing any other platform, like I fundamentally believe all of the platforms can continue to grow. 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 VI. That would be true when I think about any of our franchises."
It seems as though the matter of The Elder Scrolls VI's exclusivity was still up for debate within gaming circles. After all, when Microsoft first acquired Bethesda, it was said that their titles would be released "first, or better, or best" on Xbox. Todd Howard even said that it was "hard to imagine" that The Elder Scrolls VI would be an Xbox exclusive. It looks like the tune has changed internally. Perhaps Microsoft started to change their tune after seeing how aggressive Sony has been in acquiring studios and making their titles exclusive to the PlayStation brand.

People will undoubtedly be angry with this revelation, but with the release of The Elder Scrolls VI still being many, many years away, there is plenty of time for people to calm down about it all.
