A rumor: Several rumors and statements from industry insiders are said to suggest a studio takeover by Microsoft on the scale of Bethesda (ZeniMax). Microsoft pulled out 7.5 billion US dollars for this acquisition at the time. Exactly which studio it should be was not revealed. But it is said to be a "totally crazy takeover" and, like at Bethesda back then, one should be surprised. Bad for Sony and Nintendo-Fans, if this true.
I think it's unbelievable when such a rich corporation buys everything - I don't like this US policy. that's sad in my opinion :( How do you like acquisitions like this? Is that okay or terrible for us? Microsoft wants to build a monopoly on gaming studios, i think -.-
Even if studios have never partnered with Microsoft or have stronger profits on PlayStation/Switch, an acquisition is possible. For me it's a matter of principle. Share your opinion and thoughts on the topic, I'm curious. Calls to boycott Microsoft(-Games) are being heard in some Internet forums. Are you in? Any opinion is welcome - but please have a friendly discussion with anothers.
