Xbox's decision about whether or not to make The Elder Scrolls VI an exclusive title remains uncertain. The recent exclusive release of Starfield by Bethesda on Xbox and Windows platforms annoyed PlayStation gamers who felt sidelined. A similar backlash might occur if The Elder Scrolls VI gets released exclusively on non-Sony platforms. However, Phil Spencer, during his recent interview with Bloomberg, refrained from confirming the game's exclusivity.

Interviewed by Bloomberg, he noted that these decisions are made on a game-by-game basis. The aim, Spencer said, is to offer games on a wide variety of platforms, including Xbox consoles, PCs and even web-enabled devices via the cloud. He sees the potential of reaching a vast audience with Starfield and other games released via Xbox Game Studios, enabling gamers to choose how and where they want to play and build their gaming library.

Previous speculations hinted that The Elder Scrolls VI might only be released on Xbox. However, with the game still in its early development stages, concerns about exclusivity are premature.
