It appears that those who are fans of games published by Bethesdam you really don’t have a choice now but to either get an Xbox (if you haven’t gotten one already), or build a good enough PC gaming rig, as Xbox boss Phil Spencer has seemingly laid down the law when it comes to Bethesda games appearing on other platforms. In the recent Bethesda Joins Xbox roundtable, Phil Spencer has suggested that PlayStation users won’t be getting Bethesda Games, unless that platform adopts the Xbox Game Pass.
Here’s the full quote from Spencer when he was speaking about exclusive games coming to platforms with Game Pass.
“If you’re an Xbox customer, the thing I want you to know is that this is about delivering great exclusive games to you that ship on platforms where Game Pass exists.”
As Microsoft owns Xbox Game Pass and it’s a competing app to Sony, it doesn’t look like PlayStation owners will be getting access to Bethesda content — especially the new stuff the company puts out in the future which Microsoft will have first dibs in. With the $7.5 billion acquisition of the company behind The Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises in the books, the ball is certainly in Xbox’s court when it comes to Bethesda Games.
