Microsoft buying Bethesda and Zenimax for $7.5bn

Recommended Posts

In a monumental acquisition that shakes up the gaming landscape, Microsoft has announced it will acquire ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda, id Software, Arkane Studios, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks and more, for $7.5bn.

 

The list of games franchises now part of the Xbox family makes for astonishing reading. It includes The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, Prey, Rage, The Evil Within, Quake and the upcoming Starfield.

According to Bloomberg, the established PS5 timed-exclusivity for Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo will not be changed by today's acquisition. (Yes, that means Microsoft will technically be publishing two PlayStation 5 timed-exclusives.)

Beyond these, the rest of Bethesda's upcoming games (such as the next Elder Scrolls) will launch on Xbox, PC and "other consoles on a case-by-case basis", the outlet was told by Xbox boss Phil Spencer.

I don't know how to feel about this. It could be really good or really, really bad. I can think of a ton of potential pros and a ton of potential cons.
