Head of Xbox Phil Spencer also makes clarification about exclusives
Microsoft’s $7.5 (U.S) billion acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company, ZeniMax Media is now complete. All the teams and franchises from Bethesda are now officially part of Team Xbox.
When asked about whether all future releases will be exclusive to Microsoft platforms, Phil Spencer stated "This is about delivering great exclusive games that ship on platforms where Game Pass exists."
Basically it confirms that new Bethesda games will be exclusive for Xbox and PC users.
As previously mentioned in our earlier article, pre-existing deals with Sony (Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo) would be honoured, current cross-platform games such as, Fallout 76 or Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will remain multi-platform.
Today, Microsoft has released 20 popular games from Bethesda’s catalogue on Game Pass. This gives huge incentive for fans to purchase an Xbox. Current subscribers have instant access paying at least $10.95 monthly.
