On the occasion of the Xbox & Bethesda Show, Microsoft has compiled a large list of Games coming soon on me Xbox Series X | s and one in 2022 and in the first half of 2023. As some have noted, both are missing from the list Deathloop in Ghostwire: Tokyo. What happened to their Xbox versions?
As we know, both games are intellectual property of Microsoft and are currently owned by PS5 exclusive Thunderstorms Thanks to close agreements between Sony and Bethesda before Microsoft got the latter.
However, the exclusivity period will end in a year: the Deathloop period will run until September 14, 2022, while the Ghostwire: Tokyo period will last until March 25, 2023. So why aren’t the two Bethesda games mentioned among those who make it to Xbox Series X | S over the next 12 months? Is it possible that Microsoft decided to delay the launch until after the first half of 2023?
In fact most likely simply Microsoft Can’t be announced yet Xbox Series X Editions | S for both addresses. In fact, the contract signed between Sony and Bethesda can prevent the latter from revealing that the two games will be released on other platforms as long as the PS5 exclusivity remains in place.
So Microsoft could, if not publish directly, announce Xbox Series X versions | S from Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo on same day Where the agreement will end.
Obviously, we can’t know for sure the terms of the agreements between Bethesda and Sony and we can’t even rule out in advance that Microsoft doesn’t decide to publish the two games after the PS5 exclusivity period ends, although that might happen.
