Microsoft has clearly been making large performs with studio acquisitions over the previous few years, most notably with the Bethesda deal, which was finalized earlier this 12 months. Even with that huge deal although, Microsoft nonetheless isn’t finished. Xbox boss Phil Spencer mentioned in late 2020 that Microsoft is “nonetheless on the market in search of different groups”– and it’s attainable that one other a kind of could be unveiled quickly.
Over on Twitter, @IdleSloth84 posted pictures of a dialog on the Home windows Central discord server, during which journalist Jez Corden claimed that, as per “superb” rumours, Microsoft has acquired a brand new IP and studio. Although Corden says that the acquisition isn’t essentially “AAA-hype stage stuff”, it’s probably that an acquisition will certainly be introduced at E3.
Microsoft has a historical past of asserting some fairly main studio acquisition at occasions (together with E3) over the previous few years, after all, so this wouldn’t be unprecedented. Even so, till such time we hear one thing official, take this with a grain of salt. We’ll hold you up to date on any new information that comes our approach, so keep tuned.
Lol did not intend for these feedback to go far and vast. However no I would not be shocked if there was an acquisition, however I’ve no laborious proof but (yall know I like my proof).
