Rumor – Microsoft may acquire studio that once worked with Sony.
Microsoft Game Studios has already acquired high-quality talent for its staff, but has not yet completed its acquisitions.
In an attempt to inject new energy into its launch catalog, Xbox created The Initiative studio, acquired Ninja Theory, Obsidian Entertainment, Playground Games and Compulsion Games, among others.
Rumors have already suggested that Hitman’s IOI is on the list of possibilities, but now there is a new rumor that talks about the possible acquisition of a studio that stood out when developing games for Sony.
Klobrille became known among the video game fan community for revealing some of Microsoft’s acquisitions in advance, Obsidian was the most recent case, and says acquisitions will continue in 2019.
“We are going to make Monday a little more interesting,” said Klobrille.
“I can say that Xbox is in an advanced stage of talks (a few months) with a medium-scale studio that has historically worked a little with PlayStation. “
“I don’t say names because the negotiations are still going on, but it is still interesting.”
Klobrille said nothing more about these negotiations with a medium-scale studio that has already worked with PlayStation, but his track record is enough to leave us wondering.
Previously, Klobrille said that Microsoft will still acquire more studios and that some will surprise.
“The growth of Microsoft Game Studios is not yet over. They are actively chatting with multiple studios – large and small. Some of them may surprise you more than others. However, it is still early for all of them. 2019 will continue this story. “
Now, speculation points to several possible acquisitions, but the vast majority point the finger at The Order: 1886’s Ready At Dawn.
