Fucking BOOM

Surely - acquired - given they’ve just announced it.

I’m shacking from the excitement. Bethesda owns some of my favorite franchises. You can keep Deathloop and Ghostwire as exclusives for a while, Sony. We are holding the rest of the meal on the plate, but forever.

Sony - We bought Insomniac studios, youll never top that

MS - Hold My Beer

If you could allow me to be serious though, Dont really see much point in this acqusition, since Obsidian and Inxile are already there to make their own versions of fallout and elder scrolls

That being said, still big news

Holy crap, Well that is awesome news, everyone of these games will be on Gamepass and the buggy as crap Bethesda games will get resources and time to be more polished. And these games will still end up on PC and probably steam as well.

Good day for Xbox, all of a sudden I bet Sony wishes they did not start this petty 3rd party timed exclusive war don’t they?

This is a mighty bombshell to drop on the eve of Series S|X pre-orders!

This is unbelieveable. Let alone the exclusive talks, which don’t interest me much as I don’t get pleasure in taking stuff away from other systems - but all future Bethesda games will be day one on Game Pass. Doom, Quake, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Starfield, Prey, you name it. What an acquisition.
