Microsoft’s $ 7.5 billion acquisition of Bethesda Approval from the European Union. Official released today according to the post The European Commission decided to unconditionally ratify the Microsoft-Bethesda agreement, concluding that it did not neglect any antitrust laws.
The European Union decision was one of the last steps in Microsoft’s giant deal. With the smooth completion of this phase, Bethesda is now ready to join Microsoft. Microsoft is expected to make detailed statements on the subject this month.
Bethesda games coming soon to Game Pass
We will see the first effects of the Microsoft-Bethesda deal on the Xbox Game Pass side. Bethesda’s popular series such as Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Doom, The Evil Within, and Wolfenstein will be added completely to the Game Pass library. This major integration is expected to be completed very soon.
Of course, the long-term effects of the giant acquisition are also expected with great curiosity. There is a possibility that Bethesda’s new games may not be released on the PlayStation platform in the future. Microsoft will likely try to make the most of the power of big brands like Elder Scrolls and Fallout. It seems very likely that the new games of these series will be released exclusively for Xbox / PC at the moment.
