Today has been a blockbuster day for Microsoft, following the announcement of a $7.5 billion deal to acquire Zenimax media and its subsidiaries. The move now allows gamers to "play the games they want, with the people they want, anywhere they want".

Others rolled out different suggestions on how things may be working out for Bethesda now that it is acquired by Microsoft.

Bethesda is, of course, the studio behind very popular franchises like "Fallout", "Doom", and "The Elder Scrolls". However, it appears Microsoft has one more card up their sleeves.

"Dishonored 2" underperformed in 2016, "Prey" was delayed in 2017, and "The Evil Within 2" underperformed that same year, and "Fallout 76" is still trying to find its sea legs. Possibly, this same exclusive approach will not be repeated for Bethesda games on the Sony console. They know that the great games coming from ZeniMax and all of those studios - we're now over 23 studios inside of Xbox - those games will be able to come to the Xbox community, they'll come to Game Pass day-and-date, and people will just have this fantastic collection of great games to continue to play on Xbox.

The 2014 acquisition of Mojang Studios, creator of the reliable "Minecraft", is emblematic of Microsoft being a practical publisher.

Their neighbours ask something that disturbs the quiet and everything they realise is not what it seems. Teyonah Parris plays Monica Rambeau, the daughter of Maria Rambeau, who appeared in " Captain Marvel ".

Will Bethesda games still come to PlayStation? Head of Xbox Phil Spencer also shared that fans can expect to see beloved titles from Bethesda's library make their way to Game Pass on Xbox and PC. Especially in a time where companies are fighting for users in the start of a new generation for consoles. Dishonored 2 is also now on Game Pass for PC, but is scheduled to leave at the end of September.

The future of Bethesda games releasing on PS5 and Nintendo Switch is now in question according to a new report, although existing plans to brings Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop to PS5 remain firm.

Zenimax Media is one of the largest game developers and publishers, with instantly recognizable brands under their umbrella. including Bethesda Softworks, id Software, and Arkane Studios.

Now, should it be deemed the right approach, Xbox could also have The Elder Scrolls 6, the much discussed Starfield (even if we don't actually know what it is), future installments of Fallout, Doom, Wolfenstein and more.
