Great move if this is true. MS needs to have studios like this one if they want to be competitive next gen. I'm curious to see what they bring to the table.
May i ask what difference does it make compared to previous years? Playground were always close with MS, being owned or independent will offer nothing new to what we are already getting. Its just more expenses for MS and more pressure for the Devs if owned. The smarter move is to just own the IPs and hire devs to make your games in my opinion.
If this is true, i hope MS budget them very well because Playground games dont exactly set the world on fire with sale records with there games.Last edited by Azzanation - on 05 June 2018
