The acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax by Microsoft announced last year should be completed sometime soon. To clarify the future of Bethesda and its games, Microsoft would broadcast a livestream in March detailing the acquisition.
That is GamesBeat’s claims Jeff Grubb, a now-well-known insider who regularly leaks details about all kinds of things within the gaming industry, in a recent podcast. “Once the deal is done, they are going to talk about it on a large scale,” said Grubb. “I don’t know if it’s a full-on, Direct-style event, but they’re going to report it, talk about it extensively and explain what (the acquisition) means to everyone … they’re going to talk about how both companies are going to become one in the near future. “
Grubb seems to indicate that it is likely that Microsoft – for example in a video – will clarify on which systems Bethesda games will appear in the future. The company owns licenses such as Doom, Wolfenstein, The Elder Scrolls and Starfield. These will logically come out on Xbox consoles and PC in the future, but it is not yet clear whether they will also appear on competing platforms. The details that Microsoft was going to provide could clarify this.
