Sony doesn't know if Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield are coming to PS5

By Brittany Vincent,
Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan is just as unsure as the rest of us if PlayStation 5 owners will get a chance to play The Elder Scrolls VI or Starfield.

Following Microsoft's intention to acquire ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion in September, the fate of both projects for PlayStation fans has been somewhat up in the air.

In a recent interview with Russian news agency TASS, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan spoke on the matter, indicating that he didn't actually know what was going to happen with The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield, and would be learning along with the rest of us.

"That’s a decision that is out of our hands, we’ll wait and see what happens," he said. "I look forward to learning about that."

On the flip side of the coin, Xbox CFO Tim Stuart noted that Microsoft wants Bethesda title to be "either first or better or best" on Xbox platforms.

Previously, Xbox's Phil Spencer said Microsoft would work to honor any existing PS5 exclusivity agreements with Bethesda's current properties. This includes games like Ghostwire: Tokyo. However, Spencer also stated that other games would be released on a case-by-case basis.

It's unclear at this point whether the games will make their way to PS5 right now, or what shape they'll be in if they do. Here's hoping there won't be any forced exclusivity that ends up keeping eager players from jumping into these new games when the time comes.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the The Elder Scrolls VI trophies.
