Microsoft potentially looking at buying EA

Recommended Posts

The kind of rumour that seems to pop up every so often. Normally EA would be the one doing the buying though.

Would be pretty huge if it did happen obviously.

Would be fascinating to see how it played out and it would mean for their sports games exclusive wise.

Don’t worry not trying to start another argument. :lol:

Read on some other sites that in the terms of the FIFA licencing deal it prohibits the franchise being exclusive to any platform. No idea if thats true or not, but even if so Minecraft has shown that Microsoft isn’t against the idea of multi platform properties if it’s making enough money for them and with the money that Ultimate team rakes in for EA i could see them not wanting to limit the revenue stream. Could be the thing where the sports games remain multi platform but everything else was exclusive and tied in to the games pass service.

Sounds really good in theory but f**k knows if it’ll even ever happen. Sounds like a lot of momey to invest given how little money (comparitively) the games division brings in to microsoft compared to their other businesses. :lol:

Personally, Microsoft buying out someone like Activision (for COD etc) would make more sense.
