Candy Crush turns over billions yearly, it's probably the most valuable thing in the deal

They're getting Spyro and Crash too

Painting Xbox as a studio killer doesn't even make any sense. They have saved multiple studios that would've died if not acquired (Double Fine, Obsidian, Arkane). Activision was killing itself and not even managing to get games out, they can only go up from here.

Oh yeah thanks Microsoft for saving Double Fine.

They're sucking up as many IPs as they can so they won't be resold on competing gaming services, it's as simple as that. This is their only option left to keep the xbox brand alive since everything else they've tried has been a failure.

Are you going to be making the same excuse when EA or Ubisoft gets bought next? Every major publisher has been releasing broken crap for years now including Microsoft. Why would the situation just magically improve all on its own when there's less competition?

>Why would the situation just magically improve all on its own when there's less competition?
Xbox wants to make game pass as attractive as possible. They have an actual incentive to make lots of games, and to have a good variety of games. That means instead of just spamming yearly COD, we might start to see some different games coming out of Activision-Blizzard.

a parody game like that mite b cool but i doubt >we'll be getting anything like that anytime soon at least not from any AAA developers

 No.5420

well yeah the games are prolly gonna be gay but i dont think hes claiming there will be big improvements just that m$ isnt likely to simply kill off blizzard when they have rights to potentially tremendously profitable ips

it's kinda funny that candy crush brings in more revenue than any other game on that list
normalfags were a mistake

 No.5422

>>5421
As far as AAA normie games go it's probably one of the better ones tbh. Never played it myself but given the choice I'd prefer to play a simple little puzzle game over gritty brown shooter with 50 hours of cutscenes #1528931120

i seen people playing on the subway, looks like something you could make in a week even without durgasoft certified developers
nothing wrong with that, i just think it'd be interesting to know why people play candycrush instead of the million other identical games

iirc all we know currently is that they're dissolving their mobile and arcade divisions in order to focus more on the console market, so no specific games that we know of yet.
If I had to guess I'd say we'd get a new Castlevania before anything else. It's just a platformer so they're cheap to develop, and that genre is big at the moment (Metroid, Bloodstained, the other 50 gorillion indie Metroidvanias etc) so it's obvious there's interest there.

 No.5453

>>5452
i mean i like SotN and all but ffs i wish >we could just get another straightforward platformer castlevania like 1 + 3.
cuphead sold well iirc. idk why AAA would think its something that wouldnt sell. CV is a huge IP, and like you said, itd be ez and cheap af to develop

If the leaks are true then the line-up is:

>Castlevania Reboot (Konami)

>Silent Hills (Kojima Productions)
>Silent Hill spin-offs (Bloober Team + others)
>Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake (Virtuos)

>>5452
>>5453
The obvious choice if they really want Castlevania to be relevant again is a Bloodborne clone. It would print money.

 No.5455

>>5453
Yeah I'd love a new Classicvania, would be perfect for the game about Julius in 1999 that everyone wants. Maybe hire the guys who made ReBirth if that studio is still around since it was pure kino. But given the recent popularity of Metroidvania stuff I think another SoTN style game is a lot more likely, and I'd be alright with that because it's still better than the series being dead like now.
>>5454
meh, I think at this point we've seen plenty of times that Castlevania just isn't really suited to 3D gameplay. Also I'm really not a fan of souls-like stuff and don't get why everyone wants FromSoft to make every game, but that's just a personal thing. inb4 git gud lol

fags on youtube yimmed about souls games hard enough that it became a viable marketing tactic im pretty sure half the retards who spout "souls-like" dont even know what a souls game plays like

prolly
that would take a LOT more money and a lot more time tho

 No.5458

>>5457
By the time it comes out it will be more than a decade since LoS 2, they should go big or not do it at all

>I think at this point we've seen plenty of times that Castlevania just isn't really suited to 3D gameplay
yea those n64 games were rough

hes right tho. a bloodborne rip-off, with CVs stupefying amount of lore, would prolly print
thanks to over-yimming git gud, zoomies see beating a souls game as some sort of hardcore gaymer rite of passage theyre rly not that hard once you realize lvling up your equipment is more important than your char. theyd prolly buy it even if they didnt want it, all so they could avoid being bullied by their autistic discord friends

 No.5460

>>5458
idk im still not putting much faith in konamis ability to do anything right
this is the same company that decided to drop all console development at a time when consoles were as big as ever so they could FOMO into the mobile market ~10yrs too late, i might add and the fucking pachinko/gacha market which is nipland only

old nip suits are fucking retarded and notoriously inflexible when it comes to rapidly changing markets

 No.5461

>>5460
>which is nipland only
That's not exactly a small market tho, there are 125 million of those yellow fuckers (many of whom are dumbass otaku willing to pay money for jpegs). Plus I'm pretty sure gacha stuff does well in China and there's probably at least a few weebs in USA and Yurop playing them. And even if the game fails it's not like they spend much money on drawing some anime girl pics and paying some chinks to throw them together into an Android game. As for pachinko they're probably making Yakuzabux from that shit.
I don't know why they decided to drop console development though, maybe something to do with the drama surrounding Kojimbo?

monopoly is gud
