This announcement puts the final nail in the coffin of Bethesda's multi-platform history.
Announcement in 14 months
And Monopoly ends. One of Bethesda’s major games began with a Bloomberg interview in Last September, Spencer said that future Bethesda titles for consoles other than Xbox would be considered “on a case-by-case basis.” In November, Tim Stewart, Xbox chief financial officer, stated publicly that Microsoft wanted Bethesda content to be “first, best, or "best" on Xbox and not necessarily platform-specific.Read more Previously announced releases such as Deathloop, Ghostwire: Tokyo and The Elder Scrolls Online will be available on non-Xbox consoles.

Bethesda's senior vice president of marketing and communications, Pete Haynes, apologized a few days later, saying, "I'm sure [Monopoly] frustrates people, but I can't do much about it."
