Head of Xbox Phil Spencer in an interview with The Verge said he is excited about the upcoming Xbox lineup and specifically mentioned the acquisition of ZeniMax for $7.5 billion that will be finalized sometime in 2021.
The ZeniMax acquisition once completed will grow Xbox Game studios from 15 to 23 developers. It will add several popular franchises under the Xbox umbrella. The IPs that will soon be owned by Microsoft once the deal is finalized include Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Doom, Wolfenstein, Dishonored, and many more.
"I’m incredibly excited about the lineup, not only of Xbox Game Studios, but we’ve obviously also announced our intent to acquire ZeniMax and Starfield and great games that Todd [Howard] and the team are working on, that people are going to go play on their Xbox," said Spencer.
"I feel good, really good, the best I’ve ever felt about our roadmap."
