Update: Well, this has been a confusing day. Following the discovery of the below document, another has been highlighted by UESP on Twitter (thanks RPS), this time detailing that 'Vault' won't be the permanent name for ZeniMax Media and Bethesda games under Microsoft, and that the ZeniMax name will ultimately survive the merger.

"The concentration is accomplished by way of a merger pursuant to which Vault Merger Sub, Inc. ("Vault") will be merged with and into ZeniMax. Following this merger, Vault will cease to exist and ZeniMax will survive, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft."

Original story: Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax Media (the parent company of Bethesda) for $7.5 billion is obviously still yet to be approved by the European Commission, but it seems we've got some new EU documentation.

In it, it's revealed ZeniMax and subsidiary Bethesda will be merged into a new Microsoft subsidiary known as "Vault".

"Microsoft acquires within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation sole control of the whole of ZeniMax. The concentration is accomplished by way of a merger pursuant to which a newly created Microsoft subsidiary (‘Vault’) will be merged with and into ZeniMax."

Feel free to take a look at the full EU document. As noted above, approval is expected within the next five days. So, what do you think of Vault as a name? Appropiate enough? Share your thoughts down below.
