Yesterday, in an announcement that took every corner of the gaming industry by complete surprise, Microsoft announced its plans to acquire Activision Blizzard. Phil Spencer, who you probably know by now as CEO at Microsoft Gaming, outlined that a deal – set to complete in 2023, at the cost of $68.7 billion – is being worked through right now.
