Blogger SKULLZI, previously noted for a number of truthful leaks regarding Starfield, said he had heard “crazy rumors” about a potential new Microsoft purchase.
The insider did not confirm anything and warned users to blindly believe any publications on this topic, but noted that if the information turns out to be true, it could cause heated discussions regarding the laws on monopoly in the market .
“I’m hearing CRAZY RUMORS about another big potential Microsoft purchase. I don’t want to say anything specific because I don’t even know if this is true, but damn it.
“There will likely be fake leaks and clickbaits regarding a potential new Microsoft purchase, but don’t believe anything other than official sources. It’s hard to tell from the outside what is true right now.”
“I predict that many internet lawyers will be debating monopoly laws in the near future.”
Notably, shortly before that, an Xbox SMM specialist under the nickname Stein had clearly hinted at some impending news that should cause surprise. In an already deleted tweet, the manager described his reaction after the past work meeting with a hype image of Chris Pratt’s astonished face from a popular meme.
Other insiders and journalists, including XboxEra author Nick Baker and Tom Warren of The Verge, also seem to know a thing or two.
Recently, Windows Central editor Jez Corden, revealed during The Xbox Two podcast that he had heard from several reliable sources about Microsoft’s possible purchase of Take-Two Interactive, the company that owns 2K Games and Rockstar Games studios.
