Phil Spencer won’t confirm Elder Scrolls VI is an Xbox exclusive.

A 2021 interview notwithstanding, Spencer tells an FTC attorney that it’s too early to know:

“I think we’ve been a little unclear on what platforms it’s launching on, given how far out the game is. It’s difficult for us right now to nail down. ... It’s so far out it’s hard to understand what the platforms will even be at this point.”

So what about that interview? “I don’t know that I’ve made a public statement saying that,” said Spencer in response to questioning. “When I said it I believed it was [true], but if you ask me today I can’t recall a public statement.”

It’s part of a long line of questioning where the FTC tries to establish that an Activision Blizzard acquisition would lead to more exclusive games.
