Xbox, or rather Microsoft, bought Bethesda! Ok, wait… what!? They dropped $7.5 billion dollars to buy all of Bethesda Game Studios. That includes ZeniMax and Arkane Studios. That includes developers of games such as the Elder Scrolls Online, Skyrim, Fallout 4, Doom, Wolfenstein and the Dishonored series. Yes. This is big, big news.
What does that mean for us gamers? Well for one, rest assured: Deathloop, Ghostwire and Elder Scrolls Online will not be affected and will still be playable on their respective PlayStation consoles, but all future Bethesda titles could end up being Xbox exclusives - so maybe no Elder Scrolls 6, Starfield or a new Fallout for the PS5? Possibly. Or maybe Xbox wants to use this to push its Game Pass:
Make upcoming Bethesda games available for free on Game Pass and then charge $70 or more for those very games on PS5, Steam and Epic. It’s all a possibility at this point and only time will tell. As of now, Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 are still far away, so we might have to wait awhile for some clear announcements.
Definitely great news for all aspiring Xbox buyers, as this definitely bolsters the Xbox’ exclusive library. A much, much needed boost.
