It's a mistake made by someone who wasn't aware of what happened.
Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard has said it's "hard to imagine" The Elder Scrolls 6 as a fully Xbox-exclusive game.www.ign.com
They could have gotten timed exclusive for less that 7.5B dollars though. Sony gets timed exclusives without spending nearly that much all the time. Why would MS pay 7.5B to make PlayStation games? I assume you expect Halo, Forza and Gears to hit PS5 too seeing how badly MS needs the money right?
thats a very sneaky pic OP . he looks llike craig there.When Microsoft bought Bethesda parent company Zenimax, it created a lot of questions about what major multiplatform franchises might end up as Xbox exclusives moving forward. One of the biggest of those is the already announced The Elder Scrolls VI, the long anticipated follow up to Skyrim. While far from conclusive evidence, the PlayStation Blog listed The Elder Scrolls VI in its Game of the Year 2020 awards nominations under most anticipated games, sparking speculation that the title is still headed to PlayStation platforms (most likely PS5) despite being a Microsoft property.In its Game of the Year 2020 awards, the PS Blog listed The Elder Scrolls VI as a most anticipated game, increasing speculation that the now Microsoft-owned franchise is still headed to PS5.www.playstationlifestyle.net
The Microsoft Zenimax acquisition isn’t affecting games already announced for release on PlayStation platforms, and some PlayStation exclusivity deals, like with Deathloop, are still being honored. At the time, Microsoft also indicated that Bethesda games would come to other platforms “on a case by case basis,” leaving many to wonder if we’d seen our last Fallout, Elder Scrolls, or Wolfenstein games on PlayStation. The biggest question marks on the schedule remain The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield, both titles that were announced years ago and have received very little in the way of substantive updates since.
Many assume that Starfield, as a new IP, will be used as a Microsoft exclusive to bolster the Xbox library of exclusive games. However, fans have held out hope that the longtime multiplatform Elder Scrolls series would still see a PlayStation release for its next iteration, especially as The Elder Scrolls Online continues to receive updates and support on Sony’s console. It’s unclear if the addition of The Elder Scrolls VI as a most anticipated title on the PlayStation Blog is indicative of its exclusivity status (or lack thereof), or if it’s simply wishful thinking by everyone involved, the PS Blog included.
You are in for a rude awakening.Gonna put myself in the PC/Xbox exclusive camp on this one.
Unless Sony already had a deal in place then there's no chance these games come to PlayStation imo. We won't know anything official until the sale is done and anything could happen, just not feeling the possibility here.
Lots of comparisons to what happened with Mojang and Minecraft yet this is very different. Millions of customers already on PS platforms and a marketing agreement already in place had MS leaving well enough alone. Starfield and ES6 have no customers to serve other than the ones they create for themselves.
