Also I think, judging from Zhuge's wording "Acquire IP" that we will see Microsoft lean more into acquiring studios with popular IP now, so more like Bethesda, less like the studios before (most the studios they acquired before Bethesda were partner studios that Xbox already owned the IP they were working on or studios with not really any big IPs)
So, less like Asobo, where Xbox already owns their popular IP - Flight Simulator (and Focus owns Plague?) but more like, Studio Wildcard, Techland, etc.
Also for fun, I want to point out that Tencent borrowing $6bn could quite possibly mean that their acquisition is $6bn minimum if that borrowed money is for their gaming acquisition, often companies don't tend to acquire things with 100% cash and use various other methods, Tencent is also a $800bn company with billions of cash on its own, so yeah
Just hope it's a mobile studio.
