In recent months, the industry has been buzzing about Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but at one point there were rumors that the Xbox manufacturer wanted to add Sega to its family. We had to wait a long time for a comment, but the company has responded to the reports.
In September, the world witnessed a document thanks to which we learned that Phil Spencer had been given the green light to attempt to take over Nintendo. The head of the Xbox brand has finally decided to buy Activision Blizzard and the creators of Call of Duty and Diablo have joined the Microsoft family.
In the meantime, there have been many rumors that Microsoft intends to acquire Sega – the Xbox manufacturer has been cooperating very closely with the Japanese company for some time, which is best confirmed by the release of subsequent games on Xbox Game Pass.
Microsoft has been systematically introducing Sega games at launch into its catalog, but at least for now, Xbox fans can’t count on taking over the entire company.
Shoji Utsumi confirmed this “Many companies are interested” in purchasing Sega Although the company “honored” this, the producer of the Sonic series games is in a good position. “I don’t think such a deal will happen,” the COO said directly.
It’s hard to say what Microsoft’s plans are now, but I suspect the company might want to jump into another multi-month battle to seize the next giant.
