Microsoft Is Preparing to Acquire Three New Studies: Announcement at E3 2019?

After the many acquisitions of 2018 (including Obsidian Entertainment, inXile and Ninja Theory) Microsoft does not seem to want to stop and apparently the company is already treating the acquisition of three other companies, to be announced at E3 2019.

Specifically, according to rumors, Microsoft is about to conclude the acquisitions of Relic Entertainment (SEGA-owned team already working on Age of Empires IV ), Asobo and IO Interactive. In the case of Asobo, the A Plague Tale franchise would remain in the hands of the publisher Focus Home Interactive while with the acquisition of IO Interactive the Hitman series would pass to Microsoft.

At the moment there are no confirmations regarding these alleged acquisitions , these are studies that have always had excellent relations with Microsoft and rumors about the possible purchase of these three companies have been chasing each other for months now, in particular with regards to Relic Entertainment the agreement could even having already been signed but not yet made public.
