Elder Scrolls 6 to be exclusive to xbox and pc

97 posts in this topic

Not a surprising announcement but the thing that bothers me is it might prove we won’t get a Morrowind 20th anniversary remaster or an Oblivion remaster for a PlayStation console. Was hoping to see shiny new versions of those ala Skyrim. Will wait and see if there’s a timed exclusivity deal for 6 and if not just get it on PC like all the other TES games.

How likely was getting skyrim prequel 1 and skyrim prequel 2 remasters when regular skyrim remaster is easier and is guaranteed to make more money?

Once upon a time PlayStation fanboys said they have the "best exclusives". This right here has shitted on Sony a lot and I'm glad to see it after all of their arrogance and the toxicity of PlayStation fanboys about being on the "superior platform". 

 

Bit of a difference between building your own studios/exclusive IPs vs buying out the parent company of a long time multi-platform publisher/developer.

 

This doesn't really change Sony's line of exclusives that were home grown, and I dont think a whole mass of people are going to suddenly buy an xbox just for Bethesda

Of course it was. Easy money wins every time. Screw the challenging route. ‘Twas a pipe dream to begin with. Skyrim anniversary gave a glimmer of hope, then this announcement pretty much kills that idea off.

 

The big man Phil Spencer must be rubbing his hands together right now envisioning all the people talking about buying a new Xbox console now. “Our investment’s gonna pay off soon, guys”. It’ll be interesting to see the numbers down the line.

Sucks a bit but It's to be expected. I ain't gonna lose any sleep over it though as Bethesda ain't at the top of their game like they use to be and there will always be more great rpgs to play.

Quite predictable since the Microsoft acquisition of Zenimax. This is just good business, no reason to moan about it…

 

That being said, I wouldn’t trade God of War Ragnarok nor Horizon Forbidden West for all the elder scrolls in the world. So no harm done 🙂

Cries in Persona 5 Royal (Rumored to come to Xbox and Switch).

 

Sony will have plenty of exclusives

 

Xbox finally has something outside of Gamepass.

 

As long Elders Scrolls 6 is on Steam, all good.

The game isnt coming to the console I want so its anti consumer :c

 

I must have missed the part where Bethesda (and Microsoft/Sony) stopped being business and started being focused only what ALL gamers want.

But Skyrim is still going to be rereleased on the PS10...right? I assume right behind RE4 😅

If not a year you still have other chances: the complete edition, es6 for ps5 iteration, es6 5/10/and 15 year anniversary, and thats just on PS consoles  :P

I'm patient but not that patient.

its a shame but Elder Scrolls isn't one of the franchises i would spend $500 bucks for

 

Sony should counter by getting Square Enix, they're already basically in bed with them and the wide variety of games they produce would be a big win for them.

Honestly, I think this is great news for everyone.

TES VI being exclusive will make it take full advantage of the capabilities of its platform, without the need to optimize for all of them. Also, it's a great attraction for Xbox to grow and evidently they're not going to want to let that candy slip away.

At the same time, this is good news for PS users. The evident lack of western RPGs (without Obsidian, Bethesda or inXile) has generated a market gap in the biggest console park, something that I imagine that more than one company will try to take advantage of, who knows if we will even see a Sony first party making a game of this style.

That said, this news is expected and at the same time good for everyone.

Even if it never comes to Playstation - I’m looking on the bright side - it frees up time for other stuff!

 

An Elder Scrolls game takes upwards of 80 hours.
Realistically, that 80-odd hours of gaming could be like 4 or 5 indie games - the kind of stuff that can fall through the cracks when a bunch of big games are eating up all the gaming time…

 

…so maybe it’s a blessing in disguise 😉😂

Given the mod community support for these games, it's probably best played on PC anyway.

 

Personally, I don't care much. I spent enough time playing Skyrim that it was worth buying twice, but open world RPGs are quickly becoming one of my least favorite genres in terms of trophy hunting. One less game to play on PS isn't going to hurt me.

Exclusivity and "intellectual property" are pretty shitty concepts, but most people aren't ready to have this conversation.

Another thread ruined by two sides constantly bitching at each other over a fucking game made by a company that many people already moved on from.

 

You guys give me a headache.

Well before we get to ES6 we need to milk Skyrim for another 10 or so years.

The Elder Scrolls online has something crazy like 32 separate DLC with trophies in.

 

Surely by the time anyone gets 100% on the the game after several years, the exclusivity deals will have ended.

I'll be saddened by this news only if the game releases and it's great. I don't trust Bethesda to make a great game again.

I'd rather wait and see if they game is good before getting it anyway. If it is something amazing then I will play it on pc even if I generally prefer my playstation.
