Xbox and Zenimax/Bethesda Purchase
« on: September 23, 2020, 10:05:57 PM »
So I'm sure many of you are aware of the new purchase Xbox made and how the Fallout franchise may or may not see some new stuff in the future? I've heard all different sides and thoughts of the story but from what it's sounding like is that now Obsidian, inXile, and Bethesda are now technically all under the same roof now, maybe we can see some good things to come?

Anyone have any thoughts? It may also mean a bad time for Playstation users but who knows!
But it'll help

Maybe with Obsidian back in the picture (AKA some of the guys from Interplay who made FO1 and FO2, and later went on to make FO:NV) we can get a sequel to FO:NV or at least FO:5 won't feel like a FPS with RPG elements as FO4 did.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

I'm hopeful. Microsoft hasn't had the same tendencies as others *cough* EA *cough* at ruining good game studios.

I think they may make their games Xbox+PC exclusive though. Since Sony has so many exclusive titles.

This may be the biggest acquisition in video games. Or 2nd After Activision & Vivendi (and thus Blizzard)

Like most acquired companies, Bethesda is probably past their prime and I'm not expecting a lot, although I am excited for TES 6... if it ever comes out.
