The Elder Scrolls 6 Xbox exclusivity update leaves fans divided

Xbox fans are reeling at the thought of The Elder Scrolls VI being multiplatform, for some reason.

Ever since Xbox acquired Bethesda a few years ago there’s been an ongoing debate as to whether Xbox should turn its new IPs into exclusives or keep them as multiplatform releases. Starfield was seemingly a test for the company, and while it’s inclusion on Xbox Game Pass generated millions of players, it wasn’t the heavy-hitting console seller it was intended to be.

Now it seems like Xbox has no plans to compete with rival companies like PlayStation for exclusives, and while some games are confirmed to be only releasing on the Xbox Series X/S, there are rumours some IPs will be going multiplatform despite being owned by Microsoft.

As reported by Windows Central, and shared in a Reddit post by ezidro3, “trusted, proven sources” have claimed “Microsoft has been exploring bringing some of its back catalog to other platforms.”

While it’s unclear what games this could be referencing, it is supported by another rumour saying Xbox will be releasing its surprise 2023 exclusive, Hi-Fi Rush on other platforms, possibly even the PS5.

it’s worth noting the claim is only talking about the “back catalog,” as it’s believed “games like Hellblade 2, Avowed, and The Elder Scrolls VI are still slated to be Xbox console exclusive.”

Fans are divided to say the least, especially since Xbox arguably needs more exclusives to remain competitive with its rivals not less. That being said many are excited at the prospect of legacy games and franchises being released on consoles they’ve never touched before.

One fan said: “I'd love to play Conker's Bad Fur Day and other Rare games on Steam. Still hoping for a Marcus Fenix Collection too.”

Another jokingly added: “LET'S GO REDFALL ON PS5!”

Some fans wanted to temper expectations, saying: “I think folks are reading too much into all this,” before explaining the Xbox has a long history of exclusives that’ll likely go multiplatform, not necessarily new titles like The Elder Scrolls.

It looks like 2024 will be a big year for Xbox, hopefully packed with enough exclusives and multiplatform releases to make everyone happy.
