Prediction: the end state will be that MS and Sony barter exclusives - like, after 18 months, Starfield comes to Playstation and Spider-Man and Death Stranding come to Xbox.. Won’t happen with flagship IP like Halo, Forza, God of War, but could with “second party” games

Some people still seem to be struggling to accept Bethesda is a MS first party studio now.

I stopped reading after this. In a thread full of shit, this is by far the biggest pile. That’s like saying fire itself is not hot, it’s just whatever it’s touching retaining the heat. Jesus.

Anyway, I can’t wait for the day it’s announced ES6 is coming to PlayStation. If it doesn’t come, I’ll genuinely go out, by a PlayStation-themed hat, and eat it.
funny thing is that you can technically postpone the time of the announcement indefinitely, so it will never come the time when you'll have to eat it

I dont care for TES, im more of a fallout guy. which will also undeniably become exclusive to xbox and pc.

This is why i bought a ps5 next to my 3070 RTX

As I've said before, and I'll say again... this is the perfect gaming combo as far as I'm concerned. You're covered for literally everything that isn't Nintendo. And if you have a Switch, then there's nothing you miss out on.

At launch - there's no chance.

A few years later when re-releases and remasters start showing up - who knows, maybe they'll offer Nintendo & Sony releases for an easy extra buck.

Welp, guess I won't be playing the next Elder Scrolls.
By the time TES Vl comes out you will be able to play it via gamepass on your phone, laptop, tablet or whatever device with a screen you are using..... so yes, you probably will play it (if you want to play it, unless you're a noobie fanboy who immidiately cancels every game for not being on your favoured console)

Yeah , jn retrospect my reply sounded bitchy. It's more so that I barely have enough time for one console, let alone two, so purchasing an Xbox just isn't justifiable for one game. However, if this gamepass thing works as you are suggesting then it would give me another way to pick it up without having to buy another console that will see little use after I'm done with Elder Scrolls.

So it doesn't apply to Xbox owners, then?
you know what i mean
If Sony bought Zenimax in the alternate universe, Xbox owners would react the same as shown in the chart.

Your amazing chart seems to imply only PS owners behave that way so....

Game pass ultimate lets you stream the game which is what the op was referring to

Mojang is part of the Microsoft family, and Minecraft came to PS5. I can’t see any reason why ESVI wouldn’t realease on PS5. Bethesda/MS will stay make their hard-earned money.
probably when the next naughty dog game will release on Xbox ..yes

I mean, you’re clutching at the same straws as the other dude, but you do you. Naughty Dog and Sony have never explicitly said Uncharted:TLoU is exclusive to PlayStation, but it’s definitely an implied exclusivity. This situation with Microsoft and Bethesda is completely different. ND has only ever developed for PlayStation, Bethesda hasn’t.

And have Microsoft explicitly stated that Elder Scrolls VI will never come to a PlayStation console ever again? I didn’t think so.

And yet you’re asserting where it will go without evidence for your stance.

And the precedent of new titles is set with Redfall and Starfield. Ports already in the works like Quake and FO76 and ESO are treated differently. Future titles like ES6 are exclusive.

The same can be said for anyone in this thread stating that it is, and always will be, Xbox/PC exclusive. Everything said in here, including what I’ve said, is not confirmation or assertion, it’s speculation.

Dear diary, it's been a year already from the Xbox announcement of Bethesda's acquisition and Sony fans still cannot get pass through the denial phase.

Title is misleading, Xbox != PC.
I think everyone realizes by now all Xbox games go to PC. Obviously, there are no longer true Xbox exclusives, but just console exclusives. It doesn't need to still be pointed out every game.

Not a rumor since the acquisition. Just unfortunate news that seems to have to be reiterated every so often for plastic warriors like you who are still in disbelief 😉

I’m not sure what you’re talking about here. Not sure you really understood the sarcasm in my post.

It’s been made quite clear to anyone paying attention that these games are staying Microsoft platforms. To start a new thread like this is some sort of breaking news or hot rumor is comical and attention whoring.

Deathloop isn’t an exclusive, it’s coming out on PC and Xbox.

Ghost of Tsushima is available on PS4.

I don’t know enough about Stray or FIST to comment.

Goodbye Volcano High :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Kena isn’t exclusive, it’s coming out on PC and for all we know Xbox later.

Death Stranding is available on PS4.

Horizon Forbidden West isn’t coming out this year.

By that logic, Xbox has nothing at all until mid 2022, at the earliest...

It should be exclusive.

Microsoft paid a ton of money to acquire Bethesda. They've also made it ridiculously easy to play these games without actually owning an Xbox console. If you're in the business of expanding your particular gaming platform, you have to be aggressive and this is the best way to do it after making Bethesda first party.

Are people really this fucking dumb? How can anyone really think that when a company spends 7.5 Billion to acquire a publisher/developer that they would put some of the biggest games in the world on other platforms? Thats the whole point. To make sure that these titles won't be going to competitors platforms....

Why is this even a conversation or a question. Do people really think that there is a tiny chance of it being put on another platform just because its Elder Scrolls that it would be multiplatform just because of ots popularity?

Holy shit. I hate stupid dumb illogical people no offense.

I see that many GAFers are still in denial phase. It's crazy that after what Phil Spencer and co. said numerous times they still believe that TES VI will come to PS5.

Only way for TES VI on PS5 is if Sony will allow Game Pass on PlayStation. Period

So you think M$ overpaid for a company to lose value once it's purchased??? I don't think yall understand how bad a business decision that is...

M$ literally bought a company to lose money according to you and you believe this because Phil Spencer said so? M$ does make terrible business decisions but the reason you purchase a company is to make your money back as quickly as possible for investors. Investors go through the law often try to go after companies for making business decisions like this.

This recent Quake update shows me that they aren’t afraid to release back-cataloged multi platform games so long as it’s part of the marketing strategy for exclusive games. The Quake reboot will most certainly be exclusive to Xbox / PC / Cloud and they literally just marketed the fuck out of it and the reception was very positive. Once that reboot comes it could possibly persuade people to purchase an Xbox, buy it on PC, and/or subscribe to gamepass

This will stop being a conversation or question when Xbox guys stop creating threads on it lol. Till then, keep expecting reminders from them about [insert Bethesda] game here.

How is this news, a report or a surprise? EVERY new release from Bethesda will be exclusive to Xbox/PC/Cloud. The lone exceptions are Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo. I don't understand why this is still a topic of conversation. SMH.

lol at this point you gotta be trolling!

There have been many statements made by Xbox and Bethesda that future unreleased titles that don't have pre-existing contracts and commitments are not coming to Playstation. Why on earth would Elder Scrolls be any different. It's not coming to Playstation...

In the same way that any future Insomniac games are not coming to Xbox even though they had an exclusive on Xbox One.
