Back in 2021, Microsoft purchased Bethesda Studios for a whopping $7.5 billion. This deal also including the acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax Media. Both Bethesda Studios and ZeniMax Media are both own by Microsoft and are both a part of Xbox Game Studios. This purchase basically solidified that Starfield would be sticking as an Xbox console exclusive along with a PC release.

The other major thing you have to think about in regards to massive AAA titles coming to the Nintendo Switch is the power of the console. The Nintendo Switch isn’t nearly as powerful as the Xbox Series X|S.
