With the 2020 Tokyo Game Show starting to kick off and with Microsoft’s Livestream takeingplace tomorrow, many had speculated that Microsoft was going to announce the next studio they were going to acquire. However, Microsoft has put an end to that by tweeting out that they will not be announcing any acquisition news during the event.
So for now, Sega is safe.
What can you expect? Well, according to Xbox, we’ll hear more about Flight Simulator for PC, a focus on the Japanese Minecraft community, as well as celebrating Japanese game creators. The entire event is also being broadcast in Japanese and so far I haven’t seen any mention of it being translated, at least not by official means.
So don’t go in expecting any next-generation gaming news or acquisitions, otherwise, you’ll be disappointed. Microsoft’s Tokyo Game Show live stream takes place at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET on September 24, 2020.
Ever since Microsoft dropped the megaton by announcing they acquired Zenimax, the parent company of Bethesda, and also mentioned they weren’t done with acquisitions, the internet has been trying to figure out which gaming studio would be next. And seeing how Microsoft had mentioned they would love to acquire a Japanese studio, many assumed we’d find out more during the Tokyo Game Show. I suppose we’ll just have to wait until the company is ready to talk more about acquisition news.
