EA Buys out Bethesda from ZeniMax!


Yes, fellow forumers, it is true. ZeniMax Studios has made a deal with Electronic Arts – that deal being the sale of Bethesda Studios to the gaming empire that is commonly known as EA.

Avid followers of all news that is gaming may know that this is not uncommon – EA has bought several gaming companies in the past. Sure, it is whispered in the dark corners of the internet that EA has done harm to the companies that it buys – but really, what’s the worst they can do? Just don’t ask anyone who, well... works for them.

While it is claimed, again, by those pesky dark corners, that EA flings out subpar and rushed games, going so far as to use the term “incomplete”, the overall quality of EA games are by all accounts, wonderful and it is absolutely absurd to assume they kill good games. Someone else might have gotten it wrong.

In related news, EA promises the release of The Elder Scrolls 6: The Last of the Elder Scrolls, Fallout 4: 2nd Nuclear Holocaust and Fallout 5: Fallout 1, Again within the year.

The poor quality of EA Games Releases, should fit right in with the Poor Quality Control Releases that Bethesda is Known for... a Match Made in Heaven HELL if you will.

That was an incomprehensible sentence, especially with the atrocious spelling of the word "you're". Please revise and resubmit.

Well, first of all, you're married to Newt Gingrich, Mrs. Gingrich, ma'am, and that alone could be considered points against you, Mrs. Gingrich, ma'am.

Obviously unfortunate, yes. I am sad to hear EA is buying Bethesda. For shame!

I find this hard to believe, not only did Bethesda recently make one of the highest-selling games of all time, I didn't get results even vaguely related to a buy-out upon Googleing "Zenimax sells Bethesda"

You, sir, managed to effectively troll me there. I was scared for a second. That is a cruel joke to play...

To prevent myself from giving a wise ass response that may stain our first communication with poor memories, I won't respond.

Thank you, I'm glad I could scare at least one person today.

Because it's true. You won't hear about it 'til Monday, but it's true.
