This week, rumors emerged that Microsoft might be looking to acquire Electronic Arts, Valve, or Bluehole, the developer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. On Episode 81 of The Gaming Hub Podcast, we discuss these rumors, wondering whether the rumors are true and which one makes the most sense for Xbox. In addition, we discuss how each of these would affect exclusivity on consoles, and how PlayStation or Switch players might be impacted if such a transaction did come to pass.
In addition, we cover the revealed release date for Red Dead Redemption 2, some pretty interesting bonuses included in the Far Cry 5 Season Pass, and a host of games being added to the Xbox Game Pass program in February. If those games don’t get you excited, we also detail February’s Games With Gold offerings, along with all the new releases you can get in the upcoming week. Finally, we answer listener questions in our fan mail segment.
