Believe it or not, it's already been one year since Xbox announced its acquisition of Bethesda's parent company ZeniMax Media, valued at $7.5 billion. This included developers such as id Software, Arkane and even the Japan-based team at Tango Gameworks.

To mark this special occasion it appears Microsoft has officially updated the Xbox Game Studios web page, to now include all of Bethesda's studios.

"Our 23 game development studios, now including Bethesda, focus on delivering great games for everyone, wherever they play – on console, PC, or mobile devices. We’re responsible for developing and publishing some of the biggest franchises in history: Age of Empires, Forza, Gears of War, Halo, Minecraft, Fallout, Microsoft Solitaire, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Doom, The Elder Scrolls, and many more. We believe that play is the thing that unites everyone, because when everyone plays, we all win."

Again, that's a whopping 23 studios with lots and lots of projects currently in development, and many others already available on Xbox Game Pass, and accessible across multiple different devices.
