Microsoft finalizes acquisition of ZeniMax Media

Last September, Microsoft made an announcement that changed the landscape of the gaming industry forever. In acquiring ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks and its eight incredible studios, Microsoft planned to bring the creators of critically acclaimed and best-selling gaming franchises (including The Elder Scrolls, Fallout and many others) into the Xbox family. Today is an exciting day for gamers around the world as we officially finalize the acquisition.

Bethesda brings an impressive portfolio of games, technology, talent and a track record of blockbuster commercial success. We are excited to welcome eight incredibly talented development studios and their passionate player communities to Team Xbox, and look forward to bringing Bethesda’s future games into Xbox Game Pass the same day they launch on Xbox, PC and Android through the cloud.
