A recently disclosed court document from Microsoft confirms that The Elder Scrolls 6 will not be available on PlayStation when it releases in 2026 or later. The document is part of Microsoft's ongoing court case with the US Federal Trade Commission regarding its proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard for $69bn USD.

Despite Xbox chief, Phil Spencer's non-definitive comments in June about the game's platform launch, the new documents clearly state that The Elder Scrolls 6 will not be released on PlayStation. This in response to Microsoft's 2021 acquisition of Bethesda, indicating that four of Bethesda's games continued support or launched on PlayStation - specifically, the original PlayStation exclusives Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop, in addition to Fallout 76 and The Elder Scrolls Online. However, Bethesda's next three titles, including the already launched Redfall and Starfield along with the impending The Elder Scrolls 6, will be exclusive to Xbox and PC.
