It’s been pretty busy this week, hasn’t it? With preorders going live for Xbox Series X/S consoles, and of course, Microsoft shaking up the gaming world by announcing it had entered into a $7.5 billion agreement to acquire ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda, it’s all been a bit crazy.
Microsoft will soon own Bethesda Softworks, Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog, Roundhouse Studios, and all of their IP once the deal is officially finalised. It’s all very exciting, but this throws up a bunch of questions: will the likes of Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 be exclusive to Xbox? Can we expect a Fallout: New Vegas 2? When can I play Skyrim for the billionth time, but through Xbox Game Pass? These questions will be answered in due course, but for this week’s poll, we want to know: what excites you most about Microsoft’s Bethesda acquisition?
