In terms of video game news, there’s not much that gets bigger than this. Microsoft has just acquired Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion. With that, comes not only Bethesday, but Arkane Studios, id Software, Tango Gameworks, ZeniMax Online, Machine Games, Roundhouse Games, and Alpha Dog Games. Once the deal closes, Microsoft will have incredibly valuable IP for Game Pass, and the future for these titles seems unclear for PlayStation. Let’s unpack the announcement, read some quotes, and get a good shakedown on what this could look like for Sony, and PS5 moving forward. I’ll tell ya, for as predictable as things were going – this is JUICY. Just what we needed to sweeten the conversation.
