Microsoft acquire studios


So… Announced last night were 5 studios…

Compulsion Games
Ninja Theory
Playground Games
Undead Labs

They have also created a new studio called “The Initiative” led by former Crystal Dynamics head of studio.


I’ve only really heard of Ninja theory and Undead labs, but it does seem like a nice collection of talent. It’s definitely a statement of intent! That’s a fair bit of money right there.


Lets hope they don’t do an EA!
