Microsoft Is Reportedly Looking At Acquiring Electronic Arts

With the vast number of exclusive titles coming to the PlayStation this year, Microsoft and the Xbox have been looking at how to step up their game in a growing gaming market. In addition to expanding their JRPG interest, more first party titles for the future, and more –  Microsoft has also been vying to make various software purchase which is leading to some interesting rumors. The latest of these is a rumor that the company is set to make an Electronic Arts acquisition among a few other various studios and publishers.

According to a recent report, EA is one of most recent names of studio’s on a list to be acquired by Microsoft. Unfortunately, there’s little to no information as to how much of this is speculation or actual facts. The report also mentions Valve and the Korean outfit of PUBG Corporation as being on the same list of names. The PUBG Corpation did bring PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as a timed exclusive to the Xbox One, so it does make sense Microsoft would want to scoop up the studio.

That being said, the report does state an official announcement is pending, so keep your eyes right here on DFTG for more info!
