Forums - Microsoft Discussion - In case you did not notice: MS acquired a new studio

Today, at E3, Microsoft Studios announced that they have acquired Press Play.

We proudly embrace this change and are looking forward to bringing new Press Play games to our fans across all of Microsoft's platforms.

Having worked with Microsoft Studios for the past two years has given Press Play and Microsoft Studios time to get to know each other very well and to realise that we share the same vision of where Press Play is headed as a studio, and what kind of games we will be making in the future.

In a weird and non-indie way, we believe that we will have more creative freedom with Microsoft Studios than we have ever had before. For the first time ever we can focus ALL energy on our games, and great things are on the horizon.

We will continue to strive for creativity and awesomeness in what we do, and we will continue making games like Tentacles and Max & the Magic Marker. We want to keep surprising the industry with our work - and we are super excited to present our new games in the very near future.

Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 


Actually no, I didn't notice. And that's because it probably isn't news-worthy...
