Another highlight from Microsoft's extensive information leak is a document that reveals Bethesda's entire development and release schedule. The document itself is from 2020, which means that the information may no longer be accurate, but two titles still stick out: remasters of both The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and Fallout 3.
The two Bethesda RPGs were fairly beloved back on the PS3 — when they weren't crashing, that is — and fans have been chasing the idea of remasters for years. The leaked schedule has Oblivion down for 2022 (whoops), and Fallout 3 down for 2024 — but you need to remember that this document is from a time when Bethesda was aiming to launch Starfield in 2021. Everything the developer had cooking ended up being pushed back.
In any case, you would assume these supposed remasters would be exclusive to Xbox and PC — although there have been instances in the past where Microsoft has allowed re-releases from its studios to release on PlayStation platforms. The PS4 version of Minecraft is one example, as is Skyrim Anniversary Edition, and The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. We suppose there's a chance that a similar situation could arise with the return of Oblivion and Fallout 3.
