In September, Microsoft announced its intention to buy Zenimax Media in a millionaire deal that will close in 2021. This has jeopardized the possibility of future Bethesda games coming to PlayStation and Jim Ryan, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, acknowledges this.
In an interview with Russian news agency TASS, Ryan spoke about Microsoft’s imminent purchase of Zenimax Media. There he pointed out that he cannot guarantee that we will see Starfield or The Elder Scrolls VI on PlayStation.
“It is a decision that is out of our hands. We will wait to see what happens and I am eager to know what will happen ”, was the response of the PlayStation executive.
