Microsoft Buys ZeniMax

Episode 421: Microsoft Buys ZeniMax

So, a day before the Xbox Series X preorder launch (which after the podcast was a complete shitshow), Microsoft drops the mic by announcing they just essentially purchased The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Prey, DOOM, and other major properties. Not much else to talk about, really. The game news includes:

Microsoft purchases ZeniMax for $7.5B
Bethesda’s overhauling its engine for Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6
Former Skullgirls developers have launched a new studio called Future Club
Hades has sold 1m copies
Blizzard confirms BlizzCon 2021 dates

Let us know what you think.
