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.

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...

    Battlefield 2042 Review: A Battlefield in Ruins

    Battlefield 2042 is a shallow, feature-lacking mess of a game that appeals to neither long-time franchise fans nor newcomers.

    The release of Battlefield 2042 on November 19th should have been a joyous occasion for fans of the franchise. Instead, what the world received was a broken mess of a game that has long-standing "legacy" features removed, barren maps, and a tone that was often at odds with itself. Even after receiving three major post-launch updates, there is very...

    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!
