Few games are expected as much as The Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda’s previous series release, Skyrim. However, 10 years later, questions are still there, even regarding the basics like the game’s release date and platform. Is there any new information in 2022?
Elder Scrolls 6 release date on Xbox and PC
Elder Scrolls 6 hasn’t been given a release date yet, and that’s because still many years from debut. As recently as June 2021, the team at Bethesda said the game was still in the “design phase”. Because the game is so early in its development, the developers themselves don’t even know when it will be completed, let alone when it might launch.
Of course, the people of Bethesda did not sit idly by. They have been working Starfield, a new sci-fi product that will be released in November. After Starfield launches, the team will likely still need to focus on updates and post-launch support for a while. It was only after the dust had settled at the launch of Starfield that Bethesda was able to focus all of her efforts on The Elder Scrolls 6.
Elder Scrolls 6 will be on PS5 or Nintendo Switch?
Elder Scrolls 6 will not release on PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch. It most likely won’t release for anything other than Xbox Series X/S or PC, as Microsoft owns Bethesda Game Studios, the game’s developer.
It’s a somewhat odd situation, as the Elder Scrolls games were previously available on the PlayStation. Indeed, a PS5 version was assumed when the sixth entry was announced back in 2018. However, times change and business can get fierce. Microsoft completed its purchase of Bethesda in March 2021, and Xbox head Phil Spencer confirmed that Elder Scrolls 6 will be an Xbox and PC exclusive this past November.
As for the Nintendo Switch, well, no one really expected it to release for the unlucky little handheld. Technically, it might be possible via cloud streaming, think optimistically. Either way, those hopes were dashed when the game’s Xbox console exclusivity was confirmed. Luckily, Switch owners can still pay The Elder Scrolls: Blades.
