This week began with the news that Microsoft acquired ZeniMax Media, an agreement it made with Bethesda Softworks, as well as its studios and franchises. It was a multi-million dollar deal that shook the industry and this may not be the last time we see something similar. What happens is that Microsoft is willing to buy more video game studios.

“You can not wake up one day and say ‘let me build a game studio’ (…) The idea of having content is so that we can reach larger communities,” Nadella explained.
It is because of the above that the Microsoft CEO acknowledged that he is open to considering buying more development studios in the future. They will also continue to invest in the Xbox Game Pass, their subscription service.
