Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has reiterated that Microsoft will not scrap PS5 versions of upcoming Bethesda games that were unveiled prior to the Xbox maker’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media.
Various titles such as Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo were announced prior to Microsoft’s industry-shaking acquisition last year, although it was established that those versions would not be cancelled. Just in case tough, Playground Games’ Herve Gengler assured PS5 gamers that the titles are still very much coming to Sony’s new home console.
Speaking during an interview with SebSSol Live, Gengler commented:
The studios were already in their development cycle and, this is a message that Microsoft communicates all the time, they are not going to suddenly stop the development of a Playstation version for example. If your game is cross-platform, they’re not going to say now it’s an Xbox exclusive. They are in a long term strategy and do not want to expressly take the game away from a community because they bought the studio.
Unfortunately, it’s very unlikely at this point that the next Fallout game and The Elder Scrolls 6 will be heading to PS5.
Deathloop is scheduled for release on May 21 and Ghostwire: Tokyo is pencilled in for an October launch.
