The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5 could come to PS5 implies Xbox as it promises new multiformat games

Microsoft won’t name names, but it’s promising more multiplatform Bethesda games as it continues its argument to buy Activision Blizzard .

The question of whether future Bethesda games will ever be on a PlayStation console again has never been clear. Prior to the buyout’s completion, Microsoft said exclusivity wasn’t a priority , then said there would be some exclusives , and then changed its mind completely and said that the buyout was explicitly to get exclusives for Game Pass .

Not only has every post-acquisition Bethesda game been an Xbox exclusive but recent revelations about the new Indiana Jones game show that a previously multiformat game became an Xbox console exclusive as soon as Microsoft took over.

This is a key part of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) argument for why Microsoft can’t be trusted with buying Activision Blizzard , although the Xbox company has now said it intends to launch ‘many other’ games from Bethesda parent company ZeniMax for the PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch.

This is the first time Microsoft has mentioned any such plan, which seems awfully convenient, and while they clearly want people to think they mean The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5 they haven’t mentioned any specific names – so they could just as easily be talking about cheaply made spin-offs and the like.

Microsoft has already ruled out ports of Redfall and Starfield, which it says is, ‘keeping with the need to offer some exclusive content while mitigating the economic costs and damage to its player-focused brand.’

Considering it also admits to Redfall have ‘generated minimal sales,’ you’d think it’d be a bit more open to putting it on at least the PlayStation 5, to try and reach a wider audience. Then again, Redfall earned such a sour reputation that PlayStation 5 owners may no longer be interested in trying it out.



Microsoft: – Redfall/Starfield are Xbox/PC-only: “keeping with the need to offer some exclusive content while mitigating the economic costs and damage to its player-focused brand” – Redfall “generated minimal sales” – “many other” future ZeniMax titles will be shipped on PS/Nint — Stephen Totilo (@stephentotilo) June 22, 2023



As it stands, the only officially confirmed Bethesda games that don’t have specified platforms are The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5 , both of which look to be many years away from coming out.

There’s also Wolfenstein 3 , but that’s technically never been formally announced. Bethesda’s marketing boss Pete Hines has just expressed enthusiasm for it.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer’s old ‘case-by-case’ statement about potential exclusives seemed to suggest that established Bethesda franchises would still come to other platforms. This would make sense since the likes of The Elder Scrolls have established audiences on PlayStation and making an Xbox-only sequel risks cutting off a huge portion of potential customers.

However, Microsoft has avoided any definitive annoucement about whether The Elder Scrolls 6 will be multiplatform. Spencer seemed to imply in a 2021 interview that the sequel would follow Starfield and be Xbox exclusive after all, and expressed confidence pre-buyout that Bethesda titles could still turn a profit without a PlayStation 5 version .

Bethesda’s Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo both launched as timed PlayStation 5 exclusives before coming to Xbox, but that’s only because those arrangements were made pre-buyout and not as some goodwill gesture from Microsoft.

The FTC believes the fact that Microsoft hasn’t yet released a multiformat Bethesda title proves it will attempt to do the same with Activision Blizzard games.

Microsoft has repeatedly insisted it won’t, signing contracts to bring Call Of Duty to Switch and multiple cloud services no one’s heard of , but time will tell if that will successfully convince the court or not.



As noted before, the FTC’s opposition to the Microsoft – Activision deal very much involves how Microsoft’s purchase of ZeniMax went It’s a big part of the FTC’s latest filing today… Basically: MS went exclusive with ZeniMax games, so are incentivized to do it here, too pic.twitter.com/xFaRW473Nc — Stephen Totilo (@stephentotilo) June 21, 2023
