The Elder Scrolls 6 is only a ‘mid-size’ game in Microsoft’s eyes

What comes to mind when you think of a ‘medium size’ game? Presumably, if you were thinking in terms of scope and budget, you’d label something like A Plague Tale: Requiem or Evil West as ‘medium size’. They come from a publisher likes to brag about the benefits of double-Aafterall.

Or maybe you’d be more specific – perhaps labeling an indie film that made it famous as ‘medium size’ instead; No Man’s Sky, Fall Guys, Among Us.

Here’s everything we know about the game so far.

You don’t think any role-playing games from Bethesda (Fallout, Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online, et al) will be medium sized, do you? They’re too big, too famous, Released in too many formats. Last we heard, Skyrim alone sold 30 million copies – and that was in 2016. It’s mid-sized.

So it’s surprising to see that Microsoft is so keen to say that the successor to Skyrim, widely regarded as one of the most successful games of all time, is a ‘medium-sized’ game.

quote from Microsoft’s response comes a study from the UK’s Competition and Markets Bureau, which is trying to decide whether the tech giant’s takeover of Activision Blizzard is healthy for the video game market.

Under the title, Decisions regarding mid-sized games are not evidence of Microsoft’s incentives as they relate to Call of Duty., Microsoft specifically named The Elder Scrolls 6 – identifying it as an example of one of its mid-sized titles. Please note that some unclear language appears due to the legal nature of the document.

“Titles like Elder Scrolls 6 (not expected to be released first [REDACTED] with the final installment in the series released in 2011), as well as other future titles, will not involve Microsoft giving up $[REDACTED] per year of revenue from PlayStation customers or expropriation ca. [REDACTED] million MAU on PlayStation,” reads the statement.

I imagine the graphics would be a bit better than this. Probably.

The point is, you could argue that The Elder Scrolls 6 is really a mid-sized game; Compared to other megahits that have broad, international appeal to multiple age groups (read: Roblox, Minecraft, Fortnite), The Elder scrolls 6 will medium size. It might be huge for us – gamers who can’t escape the impact and legacy of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, for example – but in the eyes of the world, it doesn’t matter as much as Candy Crush.

You’ll note that we’ve seen a number of myths from this answer today, including Microsoft’s assertion that CoD Gamers Aren’t ‘Unique’ or ‘Special’and it emphasizes that Xbox exclusives are a bit hard compared to their Sony counterparts.
