Exclusives must become common
Since being acquired by Microsoft in 2020, Bethesda has only had one major release to date: Starfield. The game was released exclusively for the Xbox Series S/X and PC, leaving PS5 players with no hope of having the game on their platform. This shows that exclusivity could become a trend in the company’s next titles.
If that wasn’t enough, after a long legal battle, Microsoft is very close to completing the purchase of Actvision Blizzardcompany responsible for games like Diablo e Call of Duty. The shooting franchise, in turn, is one of the best-selling for the PS5, so an exclusivity could mean a big loss for Sony.

On the other hand, Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox division, has already stated in an interview with Bloomberg what has no desire to take Activision Blizzard games off competing platforms. Still according to him, the most that can happen is the release of exclusive extra content for Microsoft consoles and PCs.
