One of them could be Jak and Daxter. It's a longshot but you never know...;).

One of them is probably last of us part 3. I'm hoping one of them is a new sci-fi game. They had a couple of cool concepts in their art book.


It's something...;).

The all-cash $68.7 billion deal will turn Microsoft, maker of the Xbox gaming system, into one of the world’s largest video game companies and help it compete with tech rivals such as Meta, formerly Facebook, in creating immersive virtual worlds for both work and play.

For reference, Microsoft bought Bethesda for 7.5 billion dollars and the acquisition became official last year, so between then and now, Microsoft made enough F#ck Everyone Money to buy the equivalent of 9 Bethesdas.

Hopefully they can clean up the studio and get Bobby Kotick out of there by the end of the deal next year.

That's what the Wall Street Journal says:

This supposedly contradicts the statement by Microsoft that “Bobby Kotick will continue to serve as CEO of Activision Blizzard, and he and his team will maintain their focus on driving efforts to further strengthen the company’s culture and accelerate business growth,” but it's still technically true. He will continue to serve as CEO as of now, and then the deal will close, and he won't anymore. The does not specify that Kotick's role as CEO will continue after the deal closes, only that he hasn't been kicked this instant.

What I'm hoping is that this includes the entire board of directors that defended him for so long, but given how large an acquisition this is, there's no reason why they shouldn't get a significant restructuring since they're no longer an independent company (see also: WB getting spun off into Discovery).

Kotick is undoubtedly going to be paid in the hundreds of millions and make more money being fired than this entire forum's family line will make before the planet implodes, but it cuts him off from giving himself yearly bonuses, at least.
