According to the news released on news.xbox.com, Microsoft has agreed to acquire ZeniMax Media, which happens to be the parent company of Doom and Fallout studio Bethesda Softworks, for $7.5 billion in cash.
The acquisition follows earlier Bethesda games coming to Xbox Game Pass on console and PC, and it gives Microsoft control of upcoming games like the space epic Starfield.
From information gathered online, Microsoft says future Bethesda games, including Starfield, will launch on Xbox Game Pass the day they come to Xbox or PC.
This could help make the forthcoming Xbox Series X more attractive than the PlayStation 5 to some players.
Both machines are due to launch in November.
Game Pass already gives players access to more than 200 games.
