Xbox acquires Bethesda — What does this mean for PlayStation?

Xbox dropped a bombshell when it announced that it had acquired ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion. ZeniMax Media is the parent company of Bethesda Softworks, publishers of beloved series’ such as The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Dishonored and Wolfenstein.

It would be an understatement to say ]nobody expected this. Xbox’s purchase of Bethesda is one of the most expensive (and could be the most impactful) in video game history, superseded only by Tencent’s $8.6 billion acquisition of Supercell. Not even Disney’s $4.05 billion purchase of Star Wars can top what Xbox just pulled.
