But you also need to keep something in mind….that they aren’t doing hostile take overs of any sort,these companies were visibly in trouble & had reached a creative roadblock where they weren’t creating something new or groundbreaking. 
 

They willingly gave up business for a reason. 
 

 

Have u seen hell blade2 gameplay? You talk such crap.

:rofl: 

 

 

But what did my statement had to be with HellBlade anyway?!? 
 

I was looking it as a Possitive that in changing landscape of gaming,studios & publishers would have gone out of business & M$ is sort of doing good by acquiring them for whatever roadmap it’s planning. 
 

A dead IP/studio < An IP/studio being used in some form.

Bethesda has many up on their sleeves and probably table tuners 

Starfield 

Atomic Heart

Ghostwire

Redfall

New Elder Scrolls 

New Indiana Jones 

Wolfenstien 3

 

More new games to announce this year

 

Are we forgetting that both COD and multiplayer games who are supposed to make the biggest buck for the companies failed/keep failing miserably. 

The SP titles are taking the show forward. 


Ghostwire will remain PS exclusive till 2023. Elder Scroll 6 is not likely to come out till 2025 as the focus is on Starfield now. Wolfenstein 3 is a big unknown. Was it scrapped for Indiana Jones? Nobody knows. 
 

As much as we hate it, mobile and MP games are more prioritized than SP games due to steady cash flow.

Independent studios go out of business ,not Publishers . Dont know what you are smoking  :lol:

 

Also Activision has been milking it ,i wont be surprised if cod this year is still the best selling game of the year inspite of being the worst in years.

So, went through all the 10 pages....overall I feel

1) It's one crazy deal (70 f**king billion dollars) :panic:

2) Sony needs to get out its own Gamepass asap (probably with Day 1 exclusive title access)

3) Good that, I changed sides this generation and went with Xbox Series X. I no longer need to worry about buying games.

4) Who's next on must buy list? Ubisoft, EA, Take Two?

5) If MS is prepping for Metaverse.....what VR/AR/MR/XR devices are they relying on.......Holo Lens :scratchchin:?

 

It seems that publishers in financial or PR distress are targeted for acquisition. So Ubisoft could be next. 
 

You still have to wait for the rewards. The only Xbox major game for 2022 is Starfield as of now. 
 

Holo lens can be only be successful it has the software. So many new even revolutionary hardware fail because of the lack of the latter. Like Kinect.

Bethesda as a whole wasn’t doing well due to its main reliance on SP games and the failure of Fallout 76.

If you see the entire Activision-Blizzard conglomerate as COD only then yes but sadly there is more to it than just COD which was on a downhill too. 
& 3-4 of their studios were totally dependent on it.
 

Also the game & studio referenced in the post itself was Ninja Theory & HellBlade,which was pretty evidently dying.

Wonder if they will put WoW on GP and turn that monthly sub into GP ultimate sub. 

 

Activision games heading back to Steam would be nice as well along with day 1 on GP. Either way more exciting time ahead for GP users. :thumbsup:

Yeah but then there'll be even newer games to play and you'll be looking at a backlog all over again. 


As an SP only gamer to another. 
It’s better to go slow & through your backlog via timeline.

 

Rather then playing crap in a lead up towards death of AAA as we know it.

 

Better to go one by one & relish the last few gems before everything turns into something like “ReadyPlayerOne”

Just a quick question 

& you have to be honest. 
 

Which was the last Activision game that you bought or even played “ahem” & totally relished that experience?!
