So everybody is wondering whether all Bethesda Games and Elder Scrolls 6 will now be exclusive to Xbox or not and now we finally have an answer. Also we have an entire overview on the Xbox & Bethesda showcase.

The Xbox & Bethesda Showcase is under way and here's what you need to know:

Will All Bethesda Games Become Xbox & Microsoft Exclusives?

No. Not all Bethesda Games will be Xbox exclusives. Phil Spencer answered this question directly, saying that not every game will be exclusive, due to contractual obligations. They will see franchises through for all systems. He didn't go into detail, but we assume that it means that all franchises that were started on every platform, will stay on every platform, meaning: Elder Scrolls 6 & the new Fallout will not be Xbox & Microsoft exclusives.

The Xbox & Bethesda deal will mostly be about upcoming IPs and bringing games to Xbox Game Pass. Now you're thinking: Will Starfield be an Xbox & Microsoft exclusive? Yes, it just might be – if what was just said by Phil Spencer is any indication, then Starfield might just be an Xbox exclusive. In addition to that, most existing Bethesda games will become available on Game Pass tomorrow, March 12.

This means that all these Bethesda games can be streamed via Game Pass on any Xbox and any other device that supports streaming. Skyrim on your mobile phone? No problem.

So... folks, check your Game Pass on March 12 for all the 20 games that you can play on Xbox Game Pass.

Will Oblivion Get A Remaster?

Ish. Older Bethesda games have been confirmed to get FPS Boosters and Todd Howard has talked about Oblivion in specific, that people get to play Oblivion on Xbox in 4K. That means, Oblivion with an FPS Booster and in 4K on Xbox! How much more of a remaster could you want?!
