Xbox CEO Phil Spencer said Microsoft has completed the acquisition of ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks. Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog, and Roundhouse Studios will also come under the wing of the American giant. They will join Obsidian Entertainment, Rare, Mojang Studios, inXile Entertainment, and many other big names.

According to you-know-who-he-is Jason Schreier, the deal cost Microsoft executives $7.5 billion. Bethesda has confirmed the numbers in their press-release.

Franchises such as DOOM, The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, and Prey could all be exclusives to the Xbox ecosystem.

Funnily enough, Microsoft has technically become the publisher of two PlayStation 5 timed exclusives: Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Fallout and The Elder Scrolls fans, don't get too hyped yet. Chris Avellone is not a part of Obsidian anymore.

XBOX Series S and Series X pre-orders are launching tomorrow. The time to pick your side has come.
