Microsoft have made some huge investments in several areas to make a compelling case for investing in the new Xbox Series X/S. Microsoft has been acquiring studios to bolstering boost Xbox Game Pass on a near-constant basis with major new additions and perks. It now seems that the studio might be ready to spend even more money on another major new deal, but this might not be on a new studio.
During the recent GamesBeat Decides podcast, reporter Jeff Grubb said that he’s heard Microsoft are spending a large amount of money on something new, and that it isn’t necessarily an acquisition.
“I have heard that Microsoft is spending a lot of money on something that isn’t an acquisition,” Grubb said. “That’s what I’ve heard. It’s not an acquisition, and the way it was raised to me, it seemed like it would be a big deal.”
Kinda Funny’s Imran Khan added that he had heard the same, which was followed by them guessing what it could be referring to. Now, the details of this still remain a mystery, it would be interesting to know what Microsoft could be eyeing up next.
Grubb went on to guess that perhaps they’re putting a deal in place for a major third-party game or some expansion to come to Game Pass.
Again, there is no details to what this could actually be about, so we can only guess right now.
