Microsoft to Purchase Activision-Blizzard

Microsoft is on a roll. The company previously acquired Zenimax, Bethesda and id's parent company, as well as Double Fine. Soon to become part of the Xbox family is Activision-Blizzard, for the price of $68.7 billion.
The company is behind franchises such as Call of Duty, Warcraft, Starcraft, Overwatch, Diablo, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon...

Oh yeah, and the Sierra properties as well, except for anything sold off during the Activision-Blizzard merger (Leisure Suit Larry and Hoyle, for example). Who knows what this will bring?

At least we know that this won't necessarily result in all these franchises becoming Xbox exclusives. Microsoft is a friendly rival of Nintendo's, after all; Minecraft and Skyrim are available on Switch, and Banjo-Kazooie will be released on N64 Switch Online.
