The Game Awards Host Confirms More Major Studio Acquisitions
News recently broke that Sony is acquiring Halo creator Bungie to the tune of $3.6 billion, marking this as the PlayStation company’s response to Microsoft’s attempt to scoop up Activision Blizzard. The excitement doesn’t end there, though, as it’s been revealed that even more major studio acquisitions will be announced seemingly in the coming months, if The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley is to be believed.
The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley recently took to social media to comment on the new studio acquisitions that have surfaced these past few weeks. Keighley also notes that he has heard from “multiple people” that other major acquisition deals are in the “final stages of negotiations,” suggesting that more deals will see the light of day in the coming months, if not weeks.
Have heard from multiple people: As you might suspect, there are a few other big video game deals in final stages of negotiations. It’s going to be an interesting year!

Speculation has of course been rampant following Keighley’s tweet, with fans throwing around studio names like Capcom, FromSoftware, Square Enix, Innersloth, and others as potentially acquirable developers. The Game Awards host’s wording implies that whichever acquisitions are on the table right now are between major parties in the gaming world, though how news of this has gotten out at all – and how Keighley knows about it – remains to be discovered.
