Microsoft Buys Bethesda September 21, 2020

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

In an enormous announcement today, Microsoft has confirmed they purchased Bethesda’s parent company Zenimax, essentially purchasing Bethesda and all the companies operating under Bethesda’s publishing empire in one swoop.

If my math is correct, that means Microsoft now owns all of the IP currently under Bethesda’s name including DOOM, Wolfenstein, The Evil Within, Quake, Fallout, Commander Keen, Dishonored, RAGE and PREY. That also includes upcoming games including Ghostwire Tokyo.

Microsoft and Bethesda executives seem quite happy with the deal. Honestly, many players have been disappointed with the output coming out of Bethesda recently and this could mean an improvement in the company’s upcoming products. Me personally, I just hope this means they’ll bring the old Fallout Xbox game Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel as a digital download on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

We will keep you up to date with any upcoming developments on this deal.
