Under the motto “Bethesda is coming to Xbox”, Microsoft confirms that Bethesda will be part of the Xbox family as of March 9, 2021 – this also includes “some future exclusive games”. The Elder Scrolls 6 and the unnamed Indiana Jones game are at the top of the list of possible titles.
Some of the future titles are exclusive
Xbox boss Phil Spencer personally welcomes Bethesda to Team Xbox. Today March 9th is “a special day for Xbox”, because today the takeover of ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda, can be completed. Eight developer studios are now owned by Microsoft, including Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog and Roundhouse Studios. With the acquisition, Microsoft wants to come closer to the goal of “building an industry-leading team of first-class first-party studios”. At the same time, however, it is also emphasized that in future Xbox consoles, Windows 10 PC and Xbox Game Pass would be the “best place to enjoy new Bethesda games”. Some of them would be “exclusive to Xbox and PC gamers”. Only in the “later course of the year” will there be more specific details about the plans. As a first step, the Bethesda games should appear in the Xbox Game Pass.
Which games are meant that will appear “in the future exclusively” for Xbox and PC (and thus not on the PS5), Bethesda itself gives a hint in a trailer that was published to match the takeover. It not only presents past titles, but also future ones. The Elder Scrolls 6 can be seen in two video snippets (Specifically, you will soon see three-year-old scenes from the announcement teaser) and the as yet nameless Indiana Jones game that is in the making at Wolfenstein developer Machine Games. Both titles are likely to be in development for some time. Starfield should also need a few more days.
Mixed reality in the test: mixed feelings
