As we know, Bethesda has been the last purchase by Microsoft. After this, for a long time there has been talk about the future releases of the study, and its possible exclusivity with Xbox. After this, Bethesda has just come out to point out that it is very unlikely to see The Elder Scrolls 6 as a purely Xbox exclusive, since they have also talked about its arrival on PC.
This has been revealed by Todd Howard, during an interview with the GamesIndustry medium, where they have talked a little more about the future of the company. As you have pointed out, it would be a bit difficult to imagine the new Elder Scrolls game as an Xbox exclusive, because of this, he noted that he also pointed out that they have some kind of agreement with Microsoft.
Howard himself then returns to the matrimony by ZeniMax and Microsoft and reports that “Once the shock subsided, there was just tremendous excitement given the relationship we have always had with Microsoft and what awaits us on the road we will walk together in the future, not just for us but for the entire industry. We are strongly aligned, we have been for a long time, with the vision of where the video game industry is going and how we can be ambassadors of this evolution. Bethesda will give up very little, Microsoft is very much driven by its creators and we will continue to be who we are. Sure, we will be their subsidiary, but we are still developing the games we wanted to play and continue to pursue our strategy. “.
“I can’t really project where things will be except to say [The Elder Scrolls 6 as an Xbox exclusive] we’ve done those sort of exercises ourselves as an independent. If you look at every Elder Scrolls game, there has been some exclusivity on Xbox or with Microsoft. We’ve partnered with every game. Morrowind was basically a console exclusive, Oblivion was a long timed exclusive, Skyrim’s DLC was exclusive for a long period of time. We’ll decide what makes the best sense for our audience when the time comes, and I can’t really project today what that looks like.”
