Xbox Head Phil Spencer On The Future Of Bethesda Titles, Including Elder Scrolls 6

3 days ago   |   By Game Informer

When Microsoft purchased ZeniMax for a cool $7.5 billion, speculation was rampant about what that means for the future of franchises under that publisher's umbrella.

That being said, Xbox boss Phil Spencer did reiterate that no matter what their decision, it's in their rights to do whatever they decide.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer is confident Microsoft can recoup the funds spent on acquiring Bethesda, without releasing the studio's games on other consoles. Speaking with Kotaku , Spencer said “yes,” Microsoft will be able to recoup its $7.5 billion investment without releasing Bethesda games, such as The Elder Scrolls 6, on other consoles.

Xbox Doesn't Have to Ship Bethesda Games on Platforms They Don't Support in Order to Recoup Acquisition, Says Spencer

Microsoft last month acquired Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion. Xbox Game Studios will grow from 15 to 23 studios and Microsoft now owns the rights to several high-profile video game IPs, like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Wolfenstein, Quake, Dishonored, and more.
The Bethesda acquisition has led to PlayStation owners wondering if they would see future Fallout games, The Elder Scrolls VI , or any other game from the studios acquired would get a release on the PlayStation 5 or if they would be released on Xbox consoles and PC only.
