Xbox-owner Microsoft has bought one of the biggest games companies in the world for $7.5bn.

The company is called ZeniMax Media which owns the gaming studio, Bethesda – known for titles such as Fallout and Skyrim which are popular among adult gamers.

Xbox says that the publisher’s games will be added to its Game Pass subscription package for consoles and PCs.

Piers Harding-Rolls, from media and marketing company Ampere Analysis, says this puts Xbox in a stronger position against its competitors:

“When compared to Sony and Nintendo – this deal catapults Microsoft’s games portfolio into a much stronger position.”
