Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard in Deal Worth Almost $70 Billion

The dream of Candy Crush on Game Pass is that much closer to a reality.

Microsoft is a stone's throw away from finalizing a deal for the purchase of Activision Blizzard. The deal sees Microsoft picking up the Call of Duty and Candy Crush developer for a staggering $68.7 billion (USD). Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer spilled the beans in a new posting at the Xbox Wire earlier today.

This deal seems to have been made at the "perfect" time, at least for Microsoft....
 

Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises. Hell, one of Stray Bombay's founders, Chet Faliszek, used to...

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

Peter Molyneux's Next Scam is a Blockchain Business Sim

I'm seriously already tired of this.

Grifter and master of hyperbole, Peter Molyneux, just announced his newest "game." It's called Legacy and it will be the first foray for the beguiled creator into the world of blockchain gaming. Legacy will be built entirely around the idea of blockchain technologies, NFTs, and "crypto gaming."

This weekend at the Gala Games' Galaverse in Las Vegas, Molyneux announced Legacy to the world. He's calling it a "blockchain...

    Konami Delays Full eFootball Launch Until Spring 2022

    After its disastrous early access release, it's probably for the best.

    Konami has officially delayed the official launch of eFootball until at least Spring 2022. Back in July, Konami announced that they were turning their Pro Evolution Soccer series into a free-to-play and ever evolving soccer title that they were calling eFootball. Unfortunately for them and for fans, the early access release of eFootball was terrible, and that's putting it mildly.

    by Shawn Zipay
    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
