Bethesda's parent company, Zenimax Media just got bought over by Microsoft for $7.5 Billion


So this just came in, from's website has officially confirmed that Microsoft has acquired Zenimax Media, which is the parent company of Bethesda Softworks, id Software and other affiliated gaming studios for a whopping $7.5 billion. That's right, that means popular game titles such as Doom, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Dishonored, Wolfenstein and others now belong to Microsoft.

According to the open letter by Phil Spencer and Todd Howard from Bethesda, they shared and believe that Microsoft will make them a better publisher and developer, as well as to "innovate and grow". With the huge amount of resources from Microsoft's side, we think this is plausible and can expand these gaming companies capabilities further. But then again, it's $7.5 billion we are talking here and anyone would be glad to be paid with that handsome sum.

With these games entering Microsoft's realm, that also means they will be part of Xbox Game Pass and more gamers can have access. That said, there's a good chance that they could appear on the upcoming Xbox Series X and Series S at the end of the year. Should that happen, it could prove a challenge to the Sony PlayStation 5.
