Do you think if Flight Simulator is a critical and commercial success, Asobo will be acquired?

I'd bet Microsoft has already tried to acquire them and they've refused, not based on anything concrete, just a hunch, they tick almost all the boxes for a studio acquisition.

  • Asobo still has a dedicated Hololens team, they've released multiple Hololens titles.
  • The tech they're using for Flight Simulator looks amazing and would be beneficial to share with XGS.
  • Asobo have proven already they can release great original IP.
  • Asobo have been a long partner with Microsoft already for years, assisting on multiple Xbox exclusives.
  • Flight Simulator has a 10 year long support plan.
  • There was a rumour once that Microsoft was looking around France for a studio acquisition.

It would be weird if Microsoft waited until after Flight Simulator, when they'll likely become more expensive to acquire, I think if Asobo doesn't happen this year then it ain't happening at all.

I do hope it happens, Asobo is the perfect candidate for an acquisition.

I bet Microsoft has asked many more companies if they would like to be acquired by them that we aren't aware of. Microsoft is likely only willing to buy companies that are most willing to join Xbox Game Studios and aren't too expensive. Out of all their acquisitions none of them seem too expensive. Other than Mojang for $2.5 billion.

You know, we're already about halfway through February....where's my big GamePass titles that I was promised at?



Teased a fucking RT competition.

Easily Fable 2. Fable 1 and 3 were good, but Fable 2 was great.

Any Disney IP you'd like to see Microsoft take on? Obviously nobody can do Star Wars yet as EA still has it until 2023 though.

Gimme Davy Jones in Sea of Thieves.

I have a feeling this will be a one sided poll. Fable 2 is by far the best in the series, followed by the original then 3. I didn't care for the story and the technology in it was too modern for my liking.

KotOR 3!!! Okay I know that would be Bethesda and not Microsoft. 

But yes a Pirates of the Caribbean meets Sea of Thieves game could be cool.
