Either way I would imagine that they will retain a lot of their staff I doubt they would do this move to completely scrap all the people that made the previous titles a success so I doubt the quality of games will diminish.
My guess is that this is going to be pretty hands-off on Microsoft's part. Microsoft is going to make a push to be the Netflix of video games with its game pass. Doom 2022, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dishonored 3, etc will be free on launch for people with Game Pass. Sony's model will be $70 for a new game. If you're a hardcore gamer or anything resembling a hardcore gamer then you're going to want the Netflix model. This is going to force Sony to add newer games to their PS Collection. Actual PS5 games. Or else they are going to be the 'premium' system and that puts a lot of pressure on their new games to be GOTY quality.

I don't know about that Fallout 3 was pretty great and New Vegas wouldn't came if Fallout 3 wasn't such a great game and success.

I did not care for Fallout 3, but I think Fallout 2 was one of the greatest games of it's time, and 3 is not at all a similar type game. The new fallouts are basically Elder Scrolls with guns.

I know I am a minority on that thought process though.
