Xbox has announced that it plans to acquire ZeniMax Media, and with it Bethesda Softworks, creators and publishers of The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Wolfenstein, Doom, Dishonored, Quake, Starfield and more.

This is pretty big. MS now owns a big chunk of the open world RPGs and lots of loved IP. A big part of the playstation's appeal has just been drawn into question in my opinion. It's looking like Microsoft through gamepass is looking to become the Netflix of gaming?

EDIT: also, Obsidian and Bethesda are now owned by the same company so let's hope this means new vegas 2
