It has been over a month now since Microsoft announced it was spending $7.5 billion to purchase Bethesda Softworks via its parent company, Zenimax Media. But gamers and industry-watchers are still left with one burning question: what does this mean for the prospect of multi-console (i.e. non-Xbox) releases for future Bethesda games?
Bethesda’s Todd Howard, known for his directing and producing work on The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series, isn’t quite ready to answer that question directly. But in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, he broadly hinted that he expects Bethesda’s major franchises to appear on non-Xbox consoles going forward.
“I would agree that is hard to imagine” The Elder Scrolls VI restricted to Microsoft platforms, Howard said in response to a direct question on the matter.
