Summary

Microsoft seems less likely to extend that same multiplatform courtesy to Bethesda's gaming properties in the long term, but nothing has been officially announced on that score.[Update: In a tweeted message, ZeniMax Online Studios Studio Director Matt Firor confirmed that "ESO will continue to be supported exactly as it was, and we fully expect it to keep growing and thriving on each of the platforms that are currently supported." That includes versions on the Xbox One and Windows, as well as the PS4, Mac, and Stadia.]In the near term, though, Bethesda is still working on two console-exclusive titles for the PS5, Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop. "We’re still working on the same games we were yesterday, made by the same studios we’ve worked with for years, and those games will be published by us."[Further update: In an interview with Bloomberg News, Microsoft Head of Xbox Phil Spencer confirmed that Bethesda would honor existing commitments for PS5 games like Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo.
