One key issue that’s arisen since Microsoft announced its acquisition of ZeniMax Media has been the timed exclusivity deals for Deathloop and GhostWire: Tokyo. Both titles will launch for PS5 and remain exclusive to the platform (the former for at least one year) so what’s the current situation? Same as before, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer

Speaking to Bloomberg, Spencer said that the company would honor Bethesda’s PS5 exclusivity agreement with Sony. However, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier noted Spencer stating that “future Bethesda games will be on Xbox, PC, and ‘other consoles on a case by case basis’.” This lends more credence to the idea of certain titles being exclusive to Xbox Series consoles, even if for a limited time.

Time will tell but Spencer has already confirmed that Bethesda titles will launch on Xbox Game Pass on the same day as their console and PC versions. Future titles can also be expected on the service with Starfield being hinted at as a potential candidate. As for other titles, time will tell so stay tuned in the coming months.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are slated to launch on November 10th worldwide. Both consoles will be available to pre-order today for $499 and $299 respectively.
