A change.org petition to bring The Elder Scrolls VI to PlayStation 5 is garnering attention online as it approaches 1,500 signatures. In fact, at the present the petition is only 6 signatures away from reaching that milestone in only three days, as it was started on June 19.
A similar petition was launched on Change.org back in December 2022, by a different petitioner. That one, however, failed to gain any traction and currently sits at 59 signatures.
Like that petition, this latest appeal calls on Microsoft to “make the Elder Scrolls series for everyone and not just 50% of gamers.” The user states that “as a fan of the Elder Scrolls series I’m outraged.” The petition goes on to call for a boycott of the game until Microsoft and Bethesda reverse their decision to make the game Xbox exclusive.
Which is something neither party has officially stated. The petitioner cites a PC Gamer article from 2021 in which Phil Spencer said,
In order to be on Xbox, I want us to be able to bring the full complete package of what we have. And that would be true when I think about Elder Scrolls 6.
Shocking: A petition has been created to make The Elder Scrolls VI (6) release on PlayStation.
The petition currently has 1,040 signatures mostly showing support.

The sixth mainline installment of The Elder Scrolls is without question years away. Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard has repeatedly said the company wants to complete Starfield before going full-bore on TES VI.
A similar petition regarding the former also made the rounds last week, with the petitioner calling for Starfield (and “ANY AND ALL future Bethesda titles”) to be PlayStation 5 exclusive. This in spire of the fact that Bethesda—and hence, Bethesda IPs—are now first-party Xbox properties.
