Xbox Series X could get this killer exclusive — and it’s bad news for PS5


Ever since Microsoft announced the $7.5 billion purchase of Bethesda, worried soon-to-be PS5 owners have had one question: what does that mean for Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Doom, Wolfenstein and Dishonored? After all, console makers don’t tend to spend billions on companies, only to not grab the competitive advantage that exclusivity brings with both hands.

Now Xbox boss Phil Spencer has come the closest he’s come to confirming the worst. In a wide ranging interview with Kotaku, Spencer was asked a simple question directly: “Is it possible to recoup a $7.5 billion investment if you don’t sell Elder Scrolls VI on the PlayStation?” His answer was commendably succinct: “Yes.”
