With Microsoft acquiring Bethesda Games, Fans have been wondering whether or not The Elder Scrolls games will now become Xbox and Game Pass exclusive titles. Well, this isn't going to be the case for everything as ZeniMax Online Studios recently confirmed that despite the studio's acquisition by Microsoft, Elder Scrolls Online will remain on PlayStation 4 just like before.

Seeing the increasing concerns regarding the game, ZeniMax Studio's director Matt Firor took to Twitter to state The Elder Scrolls Online will continue to receive the same support on all available platforms despite the recent change in the studio's ownership.

ZeniMax Online Studios is also currently working on a DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online, which received a trailer last week. The short trailer gives a brief idea as to what players can expect from the new DLC, including new characters, gear, and quests that players can enjoy when the DLC releases in early November. The new DLC is titled Markath, and it will put an end to the Dark Heart of Skyrim storyline which began earlier this year.

With the acquisition of ZeniMax Media, Microsoft now also owns smaller studios under the ZeniMax belt, including id Software, Arkane, ZeniMax Online Studios, MachineGames, Tango GameWorks, Roundhouse Studios, and Alpha Dog. Some of these studios are actively working on new projects.

The internet went crazy hearing the news that Microsoft now owns the rights to The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Doom. This also led many fans to speculate about what Microsoft could do with these games now as Bethesda is now under its helm. Some think that despite Bethesda being acquired by Microsoft, the studio will continue to release games as usual for both the consoles. Others also think that Microsoft should now ask Obsidian to work on a new Fallout game or even a sequel to Fallout: New Vegas.

The Elder Scrolls Online is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia.
