Owing to the fact that Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media is yet to be officially finalized, neither company has been able to talk in much detail about what their collective future is going to look like. That acquisition is, however, in the process of getting approved, and with its official confirmation not far away now, we’re reportedly going to get more details on what will follow for both Microsoft and Bethesda in the future.

That’s as per GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb, who said in a recent podcast that following the acquisition’s closure, Microsoft will be holding some sort of an event – likely in mid-March – during which they will share details about what their future plans are for Bethesda, and what the company’s next few months and years are going to look like. Grubb says it might not be a dedicated Direct-style event, but fans should expect to hear about plenty of new information either way.

“Once the deal closes, they will talk about it in a big way,” Grubb said. “I don’t know if it will be a full Direct-style event, but they will make note of it, and they will talk about it extensively, and they will explain what it means to everybody… kind of talk about the immediate future for both companies becoming one in the future.”

The biggest questions people will have, of course, are about how development on major upcoming Bethesda releases is going, and perhaps most importantly, how Microsoft will approach their releases as far as exclusivity is concerned. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said that that will be decided on a case-by-case basis, while Xbox CFO Tim Stuart has said that Microsoft isn’t just looking to pull Bethesda content from PlayStation and Nintendo platforms. Meanwhile, Bethesda’s Todd Howard has suggested that games like Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 might not be exclusive to Xbox.

Either way, clearer details are likely to arrive soon, so stay tuned.
