Bomb: Microsoft acquires Activision Blizzard
The Redmond house then acquires control of historical franchises such as Call of Duty, Warcraft, Candy Crush, Tony Hawk, Diablo, Overwatch, Spyro, Hearthstone, Guitar Hero, Crash Bandicoot and StarCraft, while Xbox Game Studios are preparing to welcome studios such as Blizzard Entertainment, Beenox, Demonware, Digital Legends, High Moon Studios, Infinity Ward, King, Major League Gaming, Radical Entertainment, Raven Software, Sledgehammer Games, Toys for Bob and Treyarch.
As in the case of Bethesda, Microsoft has for now announced the acquisition agreement, but it will probably take at least 6 months to finalize. Only then, probably, will we find out more about Phil Spencer's plans (which of course will also include Game Pass and Cloud)for the new acquisition. We will keep you informed as always!
