    I haven't played any Activision Blizzard games in many years because I do not like playing that type of games, so from my perspective this announcement is pointless.

    I wonder if this is against SONY, or against SteamOS/Linux. Probably the latter.

    Could always check out Veloren. No chance of Microsoft buying that.

    Think we can safely say we'll see new releases leaving steam and appearing on MS store / Xbox in short order and I suspect Windows 11 / Xbox only. Sad for any fan of the core blizzard games.

    69 billion dollar deal to buy up a company that recently got in the news for a major sexual harassment scandal.
    Alright then

    The history of what happens to game companies acquired by Microsoft mostly goes what Microsoft classes as the most valuable games stay alive and everything else get exterminated including possible the complete core company. So less freedom and less jobs. Yes Microsoft business model will include keeping on milking call of duty and the other existing titles with very little going into new Activision Blizzard new titles.

    going to get worse. the acceleration of turning women into fruit bowls and removing more emotes like mooning and spitting in WoW will only increase.

    The issue is that the CEO is still supposed to stay on. The guy who helped cause all of the culture issues at the company. Zero consequences, tons of benefits.


    It’s a massive shame.
    If they fire Kotick too early he gets to walk away with a lot of money due to his contract. He won't be around for too long.

    Such acquisitions (and we are talking about one monster acquiring another monster) rarely leave the playground unscathed.
