    Default Microsoft buys Activision/Blizzard for 69bn. (COD, Diablo, Overwatch etc etc etc)

    This is the biggest deal, for better or worse, to happen in the gaming industry..... hell the entertainment industry, you're likely to see for the foreseeable future.

    "Microsoft is buying Call of Duty and World of Warcraft maker Activision Blizzard in an astonishing deal worth $68.7bn.

    The Wall St Journal today broke the news that Microsoft was "near" a deal to buy the embattled publisher. Shortly after, Microsoft confirmed its acquisition plans in a blog post from Xbox boss Phil Spencer.

    The monumental acquisition - by far the largest ever seen in video games - means Microsoft will own blockbuster franchises such as Call of Duty, Spyro, Guitar Hero, Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk from Activision, Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, Hearthstone and StarCraft from Blizzard, as well as Candy Crush from mobile arm King."

    Yeah, I'm not into that series but probably should have bolded that as well. That shit prints money.
