This means that Bethesda titles will instead come with an element of exclusivity, early access, or similar.

If there isn't any exclusivity, then DLC or the game itself will have a slightly better experience for players on Xbox.

It is also likely that Game Pass will use these Bethesda title in order to try and drive an increase in subscribers to the service.

It remains to be seen how this will play out, but we're sure there will be good reason to buy these games on Xbox.

Your favourite titles, such as Elder Scrolls 6 (which will release... Eventually) will still be available on other systems.

However, expect to wait longer to play these titles.

Whilst the games will still be available, it is likely that Xbox will receive an enhanced version, or get the game early.

However, Phil Spencer, Xbox chief, has also said that games will be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
