During the roundtable event, Phil Spencer, Xbox head, somewhat addressed concerns surrounding the availability of future Bethesda games on other machines:
Obviously I can’t sit here and say every Bethesda game is exclusive. Because we know that’s not true. There’s contractual obligations that we’re going to see through, as we always do in every one of these instances. We have games that exist on other platforms, and we’re going to go support those games on the platforms they’re on. There’s communities of players, we love those communities and we’ll continue to invest in them. And even in the future, there may be things that have contractual things or legacy on different platforms that we’ll go do.
