Will Elder Scrolls 6 Be On PS5?
If we tell you that Microsoft has purchased Bethesda Game Studios, do you think that their upcoming game Elder Scrolls 6 will be made available on PS5 or any of the PlayStation consoles?
No doubt, all the previous editions of Elder Scrolls were available on PlayStation 5. So, when the development of Elder Scrolls 6 was announced in 2018, everyone already expected it to be supported on PS5 consoles as well.
However, tables have turned now because Microsoft had been undergoing the deal with Bethesda Game Studios in September 2020 for $7.5 Billion. Microsoft knew this was an opportunity to grab and didn’t miss the chance.
Microsoft has long since been taking over the popular gaming companies. The Mojang Studios, which is the developing company of the popular 3D Sandbox game Minecraft, has already been acquired by Minecraft in 2014 for $2.5 Billion.
This already showed that Microsoft will not easily let go of any gaming company whose video games are rapidly excelling and making good profits. However, no one knew that very soon it will be the time for Elder Scrolls’ company – Bethesda Game Studios.
Now that the developing company of Elder Scrolls is under Microsoft, it is likely that the game will only be supported on the platforms that Microsoft owns, right?
So, it is not just the PlayStation consoles where Elder Scrolls 6 will not be available to play, but also the same goes for any other platform other than Xbox Series X and S, and Windows PC. So, this is also a piece of bad news for Nintendo Switch players who were anticipating Elder Scrolls 6.
However, the game is not released yet, and official announcements have also not been made yet. We are expecting Elder Scrolls 6 to release in the year 2024, and we are not sure what will be the situation at that time.
All we know is that we cannot lose hope and wish that the game will be made available for PS5 and other consoles as well, but we cannot be desperate about that because the chances of this happening are the bare minimum.
Till then, you can enjoy the other five installments of Elder Scrolls since they are all supported on your PS5 consoles and this is the only option you can go for.
Now you know whether will Elder Scrolls 6 be on PS5 or not. We know that the news is quite unexpected and thus shocking for all the PS5 players, but this cannot be helped. As for now, all we can do is wait for the official announcements and the release of this game to be sure of this. And we shall update you about this as soon as any further information is retrieved about Elder Scrolls 6.
