During Thursday’s roundtable, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that delivering exclusive games for platforms that support Xbox Game Pass was the primary reason behind Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda parent ZeniMax Media.
“If you’re an Xbox customer, the thing I want you to know is this is about delivering great exclusive games for you that ship on platforms where Game Pass exists”, he said.
“And that’s our goal, that’s why we’re doing this, that’s the root of this partnership we’re building, and the creative capability we will be able to bring to market for our Xbox customers is going to be the best it has ever been for Xbox.”
Microsoft announced on Tuesday that it had completed its acquisition of ZeniMax Media in a $7.5 billion deal.
The move sees Xbox Game Studios grow from 15 to 23 development teams with the addition of Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog and Roundhouse Studios.
