The Elder Scrolls VI

The PlayStation Blog's Game of the Year vote is underway, allowing users to show their support for a whole host of PlayStation titles. For the most part, the nominees are rather predictable; The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and a bunch of PS5 games like Astro's Playroom and Demon's Souls lead the charge.

But it's the poll for 'Most Anticipated Game' that's catching people's attention. Why? Well, one of the listed nominees is The Elder Scrolls VI — the next instalment in Bethesda's beloved RPG series. Of course, the elephant in the room here is the fact that Microsoft is set to purchase Bethesda along with its parent company ZeniMax, which has led to many a discussion about games like The Elder Scrolls VI being potential Xbox and PC exclusives. Yet here it is, featured in an official PlayStation poll.

Honestly, we wouldn't get hung up on the fact that it's there. The Elder Scrolls VI is probably still years away from release, and right now, we know almost nothing about it. We also doubt that Microsoft has finalised any of its plans for the title at this early stage.

Until someone at Microsoft or Bethesda comes out and tells us that The Elder Scrolls VI is going to be kept off PlayStation consoles, then we're afraid to say that this story is just going to rumble on and on and on.
