UPDATE 3/10/21 - Microsoft has revealed what this means for the future of Bethesda games and exclusivity. "With the addition of the Bethesda creative teams, gamers should know that Xbox consoles, PC, and Game Pass will be the best place to experience Bethesda games, including some new titles in the future that will be exclusive to Xbox and PC players," reads the latest blog post.
Bethesda has been acquired by Microsoft for $7.5 billion. This means that future games will be available on Xbox and Game Pass Ultimate for PC and Android. How the Xbox team will handle upcoming games such as the next Elder Scrolls and Fallout etc is unknown as they are now part of Xbox Games Studios so it is likely they will be Xbox, PC and smartphone via Game Pass Ultimate.
