It appears Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda Softwork’s parent company ZeniMax Media for $7.5 billion is complete or is about to be complete now that it has been approved by the European Commission and the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
There is a rumor that Microsoft will be holding an event this Thursday, March 11 to announce the acquisition has been completed.
VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb in an updated calendar post of his “Summer Game Mess” says Microsoft and Bethesda will hold an event on March 11 and the official Xbox UK Twitter account in its week events lists Thursday as TBA, followed by a stream of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim on Friday.
