Xbox’s acquisition of Bethesda and Zenimax continues to be talked about today, and this event has had and will have pretty heavy repercussions for years to come. On the other hand, we are talking about one of the most important and important companies in the whole industry which was bought by Microsoft with all the studios and all its IPs of great prestige and history. Xbox users are thrilled with the move, but PlayStation fans aren’t celebrating at all the possibility of not playing anything from Bethesda on PS5 in the near future.
As far as we know today, among the new titles from Bethesda, only the now next Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo will arrive on PS5 thanks to a partnership made before the acquisition of Bethesda by Microsoft. Corn and the next games? This question has yet to receive a straightforward answer, but for example, we know that the highly anticipated Starfield has been announced as an Xbox exclusive, so it will not see the light of day on PS5.
During the last Gamescom 2021, Bethesda’s Pete Hines wanted to speak directly to PlayStation fans, indicating the following: “I have no idea how to say this since… I don’t know. I do not know the answer. Does not exist. It’s not that I know it and want to keep it hidden, I really don’t know “, thus began Hines, who wanted in second place to deepen the question of Bethesda and PlayStation.
“There are Xbox franchises that are also present on other platforms. Minecraft did not cease to exist elsewhere once Mojang was purchased by Xbox. It is a game that is played massively on all platforms. Starfield was announced as an Xbox exclusive, but I’m not sure if I would go so far as to say that PlayStation gamers have finished playing Bethesda titles. But again, I don’t know the answer to this question yet “.
Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg also spoke during the speech, who said he wanted to be careful about this issue because it is a question people care a lot and for Microsoft it is not easy to answer. Greenberg, however, was keen to point out that first-party Xbox titles are also releasing on PC and via the cloud, with PlayStation users who could play such titles even without necessarily purchasing an Xbox console.
At the moment, the situation still looks smoky, and as we already pointed out some time ago, it will be a matter of seeing on a case-by-case basis how the next Bethesda games arriving here in the near future will be. manipulated.
While you wait to get your hands on upcoming Microsoft and Bethesda productions, you can purchase these games from both companies on Amazon at these addresses: Gears 5 And Fallout 76.
