List Of Activision Blizzard IP’s And Studios To Be Owned By Microsoft

In case you somehow missed the news that Microsoft is set to acquire Activision Blizzard for an obscene amount of money, now you do! It will certainly cause quite the stir, and will frankly change how things will operate moving forward.

No no, Microsoft isn’t buying just Activision, nor just Blizzard or even just a couple of franchises. Microsoft is buying everything, adding more studios to their already vaunted lineup.

Of course, an acquisition of this magnitude will certainly ruffle some feathers, but above that, we’ll be finding some franchises and IP’s shift homes once the ink is dry on the deal. Imagine Crash and Spyro now wearing Microsoft colors? Who would have thought!

More than the IP’s, here’s a list of studios as well:

  • Blizzard Entertainment
  • Limited

This is what nearly $70 Billion can get you in the gaming space, and it’ll certainly boost the value proposition of Game Pass in the long run seeing as most, if not all, of these will hit the subscription service day and date.
