business news After Activision-Blizzard and Bungie, other takeovers to be expected? Jeff Grubb is on a track
In recent months, the world of video games has been constantly shaken up. Remember, in 2020, Microsoft announces to buy Bethesda Softworks (The Elder Scrolls, Fallout…) for 8 billion dollars. Last month, the American giant smashed records by signaling that it was about to acquire Activision-Blizzard for 67 billion dollars. Earlier in the week, it was Sony who took the floor to announce that Bungie (Destiny 2), a former Microsoft studio, is now a PlayStation brand. After so many upheavals, we hoped that this race for redemption would calm down, but according to Jeff Grubb, this is not the case.
A new major acquisition to come?
After Bethesda Softworks, Activision-Blizzard and Bungie, it seems that a major new acquisition is on the way. Indeed, during a discussion with Mike Minotti, Jeff Grubbthe insider who “predicted” that Forza Horizon 5 would take place in Mexico, revealed that a new takeover will soon be announced. For the moment, we must admit that the man does not get too wet since Jim Ryan, the CEO of the PlayStation brand, has himself announced that we should “expect other redemptions” in the weeks or the months to come. But Jeff Grubb obviously does not stop there.
Indeed, after having specified to Mike Minotti that he heard noises from corridors on which he did not really want to dwell, the insider gave some additional details.
Who is the next target?
During this exchange, Jeff Grubb uses the phrase “It Takes Two To Tango”… If at first this formulation can make one think of Take-Two, the publisher behind the NBA 2K and GTA V games, or even Hazelight, the studio to whom we owe It Takes Two, Jeff Grubb finally took us somewhere else. It is in any case, what indicates his tweet available below.
I wasn’t referring to Take Two or Hazelight!
According to netizens, it seems that the expression ‘”It Takes Two To Tango” (which means “It takes two to tango”) refers to Resident Evil 5, since the cooperative horror game offers a success / trophy of the same name. What we can conclude from all this is that Capcom, the owner of the Resident Evil brand, could be the next target of Sony or Microsoft. Of course, this information is to be taken with a grain of salt since nothing has been communicated from the two giants.
