The Elder Scrolls 6 Announced Too Early Bethesda Todd Howard

The Elder Scrolls 6 Isn’t Coming to PS5 – Won’t Launch Until 2026

After years of uncertainty, it looks like The Elder Scrolls 6 will not release on PS5 after all. Recently, the FTC revealed new documents in its Microsoft case that shed a light on some of the company’s plans for future releases which includes Bethesda’s anticipated RPG. Additionally, the documents also reveal that the game won’t be release until at least 2026 so it will be a pretty long wait.

As reported by The Verge, a new chart from Microsoft’s documents that were exposed by the FTC reveals a list of Bethesda titles, many of which have already been released such as Redfall. The chart mainly highlights the platforms that Microsoft plans to launch each game on. The last game on the list is The Elder Scrolls 6 and as the chart indicates, it has a big red cross next to PS5.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer responded to the chart’s exclusivity mention of The Elder Scrolls 6 to GQ, stating, “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 6.”

The release date for The Elder Scrolls 6 is also listed as “TBC” but it’s expected in 2026 or later. Considering that Starfield just launched, Bethesda’s efforts might be on supporting its latest sci-fi RPG first. Last month, Todd Howard revealed that The Elder Scrolls 6 had officially entered early development but also clarified that Starfield will be the studio’s main focus and priority. Howard even wonders if Bethesda announced the next Elder Scrolls game too early as it was initially revealed back in 2018.

Like Starfield, it looks like The Elder Scrolls 6 will skip a PS5 release and likely hit Xbox Series X/S and PC only. The internet has a mixed opinion on the news, with many stating that it was obvious from the acquisition that Xbox had always intended to make it exclusive while others think Microsoft wasn’t being entirely forthcoming about its plans.
