Xbox E3 Studio Purchase Announcement

Xbox has been acquiring loads of game development studios recently, none of which are bigger than the $7.5billion purchase of Bethesda. It’s such a big deal that there will be a joint Xbox & Bethesda E3 2021 showcase.

However, this presentation may not just focus on games, despite leaks revealing all of the Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 Showcase games early. Apparently, Xbox could announce some more studio and IP acquisitions at the gaming event too.

Windows Central editor Jez Corden revealed this news in Discord messages which have since been shared.

“I think there’s a very good chance of at least one acquisition being announced at the show”.

“I have good, very good, rumours that ms has acquired some ip yes, but the ones I’ve heard about are not like… aaa-hype level stuff. And they may in fact be part of a studio acquisition.”
