Microsoft may be interested in expanding its team, with the acquisition of some new studies. This is what emerges from some rumors of the last hours, according to which the company would be in talks with three companies, after having sent a letter of intent in this regard.
The three studies would be Asobo, Relic and IO Interactive, so we talk about three quite important names. Already in the past, there had been rumors of a possible acquisition of Relic by Microsoft, for which the new rumors would only confirm the interest of the Redmond giant towards society.
The company, on the other hand, is not new to such moves, given that only last year Microsoft acquired five studios, putting names like Playground Games and Ninja Theory under its wing.
As for the timing, they could also be quite short, given that Microsoft’s plans would be to formalize purchases before E3 2019, which will start in about two months.
Obviously, we recommend that you take everything with pliers, as this is rumor and therefore unconfirmed news. In the meantime, waiting for any confirmation or denial, tell us yours: what do you think of a hypothetical acquisition by Microsoft of these studies? Would it be the right move for both parties?
