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

Xbox's biggest upcoming exclusive, Starfield, is only a mid-size game – as far as Microsoft is concerned.

Ms is clearly trying to downplay to make it look like their the little guy. When in reality for being a trillion dollar company(Xbox fans throw it out there all the time) they've had 20 years to get it right. Failed studios after failed studio. They have studios and couldn't do anything. They have damn near killed rare. Rare was a great studio at one point. Most of them left

IDK why people always bring up Rare. the main people left Rare before Microsoft even acquired them. Sony has shutdown just as many if not more studios. But no one ever brings that up.

Nah they definitely gutted Rare, ex employees have stated what went wrong there.

Skyrim is one of the best selling video games of all time. It sold more than any PS exclusive and almost all of the COD games - over 30 million copies.

This filing is obviously deceptive.

Yup rdr2 must be a small indie as it sold about the same as Skyrim. Like the logic is insane.

So much for not splitting up pre existing gaming communities

Spot-on there! This is a ridiculous claim by Microsoft. This is most definitely an attempt to downplay how big of a deal their recent purchases actually are. I've been pretty vocally supportive of Microsoft since I've been enjoying the Series S. But they honestly need to just stop talking at this point. Their buyouts have been scummy, but the way they're trying to downplay things when there are serious concerns surrounding them. That's a much worse look...

The downplay is insane. Microsoft acting like they desperate. Elderscrolls? Who’s heard of Elderscrolls?!

Clearly it doesn't bring in the revenue that COD brings in, so in terms of everything combined it is a mid-sized game compared to COD. How many COD games have been released since 11/11/11?

Elder Scroll 6 a mid-size game. Call of Duty is just an Expansion Pack. Doom is a retro indie shooter. Fallout is just a proof of concept. Candy Crush being the only AAAA game in their portfolio and the rest are just Demos and Early Access never to be finished ideas.

Microsawft...Microsawft never changes.
