The Elder Scrolls 16 Will Launch in 2026, Microsoft's Lawyer Claims

More and more interesting information is coming out during Microsoft's continuing series of hearings by the Federal Trade Commission. This time we learned that 2026 will see the release of... Elder Scrolls 16.

A few days ago, during the Federal Trade Commission hearings, the head of Xbox Game Studios, Phil Spencer, stated that The Elder Scrolls VI will debut on the market no earlier than 2028. Meanwhile, it turns out that two years earlier players will get their hands on... the sixteenth installment of the series.

Of course, this is not true. But such information, ost likely as a result of a mistake, was given at the hearing by one of Microsoft's lawyers. Of course, the company's representative quickly retorted and explained that the lawyer meant the sixth installment.

As you can see for yourself, both the date given by the lawyer and Phil Spencer appeared during the same series of hearings, just a few days apart. Why then such discrepancies? Perhaps one of these gentlemen knows much more about The Elder Scrolls VI. The question is, which one and whom to believe? Privately, however, I'm betting on the head of the game division of the company that owns Bethesda.

Either way there is nothing left for us to do but to be patient and wait for official information. What is certain, however, is that they will not come too soon. Before that, we must see the debut of Starfield, which is also being developed by Bethesda Game Studios - its release date is September 6.

Finally, it's worth mentioning that no decision has yet been made (at least according to Spencer) on whether or not The Elder Scrolls VI will be an Xbox exclusive, or will it also come to other platforms (read: PlayStation).
