According to an insider, The Elder Scrolls 6 is set to be an Xbox exclusive title.

As what is probably the most anticipated title of all time, The Elder Scrolls 6 has generated a lot of discussion. Many have wondered what the setting will be for this next behemoth RPG, what will the skill system look like, and how much freedom will players be given. Without much information coming from Bethesda, fans have largely been left to their own imagination. Despite this, one topic has been dominating the discussion as of late - will The Elder Scrolls 6 be an Xbox exclusive?

VentureBeat journalist and industry insider, Jeff Grubb, took to Twitter recently to refute a suggestion from Bethesda's Pete Hines that the door was still open for Bethesda games, like Starfield, to release on PlayStation. Xbox's Aaron Greenberg later made it clear that Starfield would not come to PlayStation, and would only launch on Xbox consoles. Grubb appeared to agree, saying that "Elder Scrolls 6 is planned as Xbox exclusive as well."

It seems that Microsoft will be looking to release both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 on PC and Xbox consoles, exclusively. Of course no official statement has yet to come from Microsoft or Bethesda regarding The Elder Scrolls 6, and with it likely being a quite a few years away at least, it's always possible that circumstances will change.

In the meantime, fans can only wait and speculate. Players ready for their next Skyrim fix only need to wait until Nov. 11, when the Skyrim 10th Anniversary Edition launches on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
