Is Microsoft getting bigger?

Microsoft has grown into a huge corporation and is also well represented in the video game industry. More than 20 developer studios will probably continue to surprise us with numerous games in the future. Maybe that's not over yet, because in an interview with the site CNET it sounds like Microsoft may consider buying more game developers in the future.

“We will always look for places where there is this commonality of purpose, mission and culture. We will always try to grow inorganically if it makes sense, ”said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

That means Microsoft is constantly on the lookout for opportunities that have been exploited multiple times with the acquisition of ZeniMax ($ 7.5 billion), Mojang ($ 2.5 billion), Ninja Theory, inXile, Obisdian, and more. Overall, Microsoft has been for the past 10 years invested more than $ 10 billion in the expansion.

If Xbox boss Phil Spencer has its way, the company would like to stretch its feelers especially towards Japan:

"I think it would be nice if we could find an Asian studio, especially a Japanese one, to complement our studios," he said in 2019.

But not only Japanese studios are eligible. Speaking to CNET, Spencer said that Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax was all about securing more content, which is paramount to the company's success. Perhaps the group already has one or the other studio in mind.

Microsoft promises not all Bethesda games will be exclusive games

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.
