I wouldn't bet on it, but I think that while MS will try to make as many Bethesda franchises as possible PC and XS exclusive, TES and Fallout will remain multiplat, their sales potential on PS is too high to give up. PC and XS timed exclusive for them is very likely, though. Also because existing deals with Sony must be respected, so the first exclusive titles would arrive too late to help XS significantly against PS5.

True, but at the same time Microsoft knows that it wouldn't be moving consoles or especially Game Pass subscriptions en masse if the major franchises were multiplatform. It would be the equivalent of Sony releasing God of War, Uncharted, or The Last of Us to Xbox as well, knowing they're leaving millions of copies unsold by not releasing those games on Xbox. Microsoft is really pushing Game Pass extremely hard, and I can't think of a better way to do that than making those franchises day 1 available on Game Pass exclusively. Or maybe a year exclusively, then a $70 price tag on those games for PS5.
