Microsoft to Discuss Future Bethesda Plans Once Deal Closes in March, According to Jeff Grubb - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted 6 days ago / 1,660 Views
Microsoft announced back in September 2020 it had reached an agreement to acquire Bethesda parent company ZeniMax for $7.5 billion. The deal has not been finalized, however, it is in the final process of approval by the European Commission.
GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb in a recent podcast said Microsoft plans to hold some kind of event once the ZeniMax acquisition is finalized, which will most likely be sometime in March.
"Once the deal closes, they will talk about it in a big way," Grubb said. "I don’t know if it will be a full Direct-style event, but they will make note of it, and they will talk about it extensively, and they will explain what it means to everybody. Kind of talk about the immediate future for both companies becoming one in the future."
As of right now, we don't know for sure if future games from the eight ZeniMax studios will be Xbox console exclusives or if they would get a release on PlayStation or Nintendo platforms.
