The news that Microsoft had taken over Bethesda came as a surprise. Now the question was whether all Bethesda games will appear exclusively for the Xbox and PC in the future. Microsoft has spoken out.
Will all Bethesda games become exclusives?
After the acquisition, many well-known and popular Bethesda brands migrate to Microsoft. This includes franchises like Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, DOOM and other classics. The video game world is now asking itself whether the games will be Microsoft-exclusive in the future. Xbox boss Phil Spencer answered that in one Bloomberg interview and can reassure some fans.
There will be no exclusive exclusivity, a few games will continue to appear for other platforms. In the future, however, this will be decided from game to game. In the case of the Bethesda titles Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop, which should appear exclusively for the PlayStation 5, the agreement will be retained. The upcoming space epic Starfield, however, is so far planned exclusively for the Xbox and the PC.
