Elder Scrolls VI

The Elder Scrolls VI release date delayed until at least 2027, says Xbox boss

During a hearing where the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is discussing Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Phil Spencer, the chief of Microsoft’s Gaming division, provided an update on the highly anticipated game, The Elder Scrolls VI. According to Spencer, the fantasy RPG is still “five-plus years away” from release.

Spencer’s statement came in response to questioning by an FTC lawyer regarding the game’s potential platforms and release timeframe. He acknowledged that Bethesda, the publisher behind The Elder Scrolls VI, has been unclear about the platforms it will launch on given the game’s distant release date. As the game is still in early development, Spencer mentioned the challenge of predicting the future landscape of gaming platforms.
