Xbox Boss Phil Spencer sat down to interview Kotaku this past weekend. While sitting, Spencer touched on a variety of topics, from Next Generation consoles to Infinite aura. But arguably the most important topic of the interview is the potential for lucrative Xbox exclusives. This comes after Microsoft announced the acquisition of ZeniMax Media, the parent company of the video game company, Bethesda.
Microsoft bought ZeniMax Media for $ 7.5 billion in September. Big Buy gives Microsoft ownership of Bethesda SoftworksAnd the Bethesda Game StudiosAnd the Software IDAnd the ZeniMax Online StudiosAnd the StaffAnd the MachineGamesAnd the Tango Gameworks gameAnd the Alpha DogAnd and Roundhouse Studios. Yes, that’s a long list from game developers, who provide a longer list of game titles to Microsoft. The company now has titles like The Sheikh ScrollsAnd the the death And the Drops. However, Microsoft says the current exclusive deals for games like Ghost Wire: Tokyo Will not change. But that still leaves PlayStation fearful for the future of their games. Now, Phil Spencer answers (roughly) a question Bethesda Xbox Exclusives.
When asked if he thought Microsoft could get $ 7.5 billion back if not issued Elder Scrolls VI On PlayStation, he answered “Yes,” then explained.
This deal was not made to withdraw games from other such player base. It was nowhere in the documents we collected: “How do we prevent other players from playing these games?” We want more people to be able to play games, not fewer people to be able to play games.
Although Spencer did not clearly state the future Bethesda The titles will become exclusive, it has said that Microsoft has no obligation to publish games on platforms it does not support. In other words, business is business and Microsoft will be able to decide for itself whether or not the games will release on multiple platforms. Spencer also says that future ZeniMax Media titles will be determined on a case-by-case basis. According to Kotaku, another possibility is that ZeniMax titles “sell for full price on PlayStation but are offered at a huge discount on Xbox as part of their $ 10 / month Game Pass subscription.” However, with no clear answer from Microsoft, gamers will have to wait for next-generation consoles to hit the shelves.
