In September last year, Microsoft announced the takeover of ZeniMax Media and thus of Bethesda Softworks.
With the takeover, worth around 7.5 billion US dollars, Microsoft not only secured well-known studios such as id Software, MachinesGames, Bethesda Game Studios, Arkane Studios and Tango Gameworks. In addition, brands such as “ The Elder Scrolls”, “Doom”, “Wolfenstein”, “Dishonored” and the upcoming role-playing game “Starfield” became the property of Microsoft. As we already know, the PS5 exclusive deals for “Deathloop” and “GhostWire: Tokyo” remain untouched by the takeover.
Specific details about the future of Bethesda Softworks?
As originally announced, these will be available on the consoles exclusively for the PlayStation 5 for a period of one year. But what about upcoming titles like “ The Elder Scrolls VI”, “Starfield” or other projects from Bethesda Softworks? Will these only be released for the PC and Xbox platforms? Or will PlayStation players continue to receive the titles from Bethesda Softworks?
Microsoft has not yet given specific details on this topic. According to the GamesBeat editor and industry insider Jasob Grubb, who is considered a reliable source, Microsoft could finally provide clarity in the coming month and talk in detail about the future of Bethesda Softworks.
