Microsoft to Acquire Activision Blizzard


Recommended Posts

In all these acquisition news, it seems allegations against Kotick are being brushed under the rug. He'll stay as the CEO til acquisition is complete, and then he might leave the position with a massive payout.

 

So much for the employees asking for his immediate resignation and so much for other company leaders calling out Kotick for his involvement in all the sexual harassment allegations.

It's like Indian polics. Whenever a rebel leader joins ruling party all allegations, corruption charges etc are washed away.

Lol, I hope that's a joke. :D 

HDR is controlled by Apps (Games) on PC.
Gamepad is also controlled by apps (Games) on PC.

If the game support those, you get everything top notch. Plus, on PC you get supports for all the controllers, DS4, DS, XBone, XSX or even x360.....chose to your heart's content.

 

The support is not universal and very patchy. Even for content, I am not sure if the Windows apps support HDR since we end up streaming via the browser. I just want something that works OOTB wrt to HDR like how in case of TV/consoles.

Lmoa Ppl on the internet (you know the kind) are actually “relieved” that their stance of not supporting Kotick by the means of not buying Acti-Bliz games “couldn’t have had a better conclusion”….now leadership is changing & they “don’t really have to buy” their games anymore to be able to access them :rofl: 

 

This is some of the funniest stuff to happen in #metoo since it started. 
 

But that aside M$ has enough footing in Hardware,Cloud & Development to pretty much arm twist anyone in or looking to get into the space of gaming. 
 

Not really a good sign considering where it is coming from (forced paywalls & Kinnect) but yeah it is what it is.

People really are deluding themselves if they think it won't lead ponies moving to xbox. 

The only reason I got an xbox was because MS bought Bethesda. 

I used to be a hardcore pony before that.

Sony will not be able to keep up with MS in terms of content in 2 or 3 years.

 

33 studios vs 15.

Kotick got lot of backing. He is there as CEO since 90s. Itni assani se chala jaayega kya lol

This deal will close 2023 July 

18 months from now 

 

Yearly COD is coming to PS till then 

Even Overwatch 2 most likely also is as it’s already announced as PS third party. 
 

Diablo 4 maybe exclusive as it’s not officially announced yet. 
2024 COD will actually tell us what the future will be. 

But yeah ES6 already hinted to be not coming for PS & COD going absent on PS is going to have dent that can’t really be replaced easily.

All I want from this deal is that Mr. Spencer gives more space to Raven Software for building cool stuff like Singularity (2010) ; one of the best shooter campaigns ive played but sadly ended up being a bit underrated. They were/are really good at making single player stuff but got stuck as a CoD Support Studio.

 

Still, they managed to create the Black Ops Cold War Campaign in a matter of months. (one of my favourites).

 

In another world, instead of forcing Remedy to make Crossfire X, MS would get Raven to build it for them.

No disagreements there, what's unfortunate is all the pressure on him to resign immediately is gone, he'll come out of this still having the job or a payout of 300mil. Acquisition news has overshadowed his complacency in those sexual harassment allegations.

Sony studios incapable of making high quality shooter game, so yeah losing COD will make ponies cry :D

As opposed to MS who made groundbreaking fps games all by themselves :D
