Microsoft and Xbox representatives appeared in court earlier this year to legally greenlit its $69 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Every normal court proceeding, various emails, documents and more have been kept away from the public and the press, but many unseen documents were leaked this morning. Xbox head Phil Spencer considered acquiring Nintendo and Warner Bros. Games at one point, and we’ve learned that Microsoft is planning an X/S refresh with a new controller for next year. Other documents point to potential remakes of Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, among other games.
More specifically, the “ZeniMax Management Forecast” document details plans for various games, including the aforementioned remakes of Fallout 3 and Oblivion in 2022, along with a potential sequel to Ghostwire: Tokyo and the third installment in Arkane’s Dishonored series.

As you can see, this document references other games we know about, such as Machine Games’ Indiana Jones project, 2021’s Deathloop, and the recently released Starfield.
It also mentions The Elder Scrolls VI, which we’ve learned won’t launch until 2026 and won’t launch on Sony’s PlayStation 5.
It’s important to note that this leaked document is three years old, so it’s safe to assume that plans have changed and this schedule doesn’t represent the company’s current plans.
