Today, it was announced that Microsoft has acquired Activision Blizzard, with the tweet sent from the official account of Xbox.
With the agreement, the following game series will now belong to Xbox:
- Candy Crush
- Call of Duty
- Guitar Hero
The recently infamous Activision purchase cost an estimated 68.7 billion dollars. The games will be added to Xbox Game Pass on release day. In addition, Xbox announced that the number of users who signed up for Game Pass exceeded 25 million.
Probably now games will be published on Steam instead of Battle.Net platform. The sad news for PlayStation is that these games are now exclusive to Xbox. Maybe Xbox can continue to release some series for PlayStation. (For example: Call of Duty) In addition, games that are no longer published because their license has not been renewed may come up again.
