Is Microsoft Buying EA?

The good people over at Polygon have recently published a very interesting article which you can check out for yourself, right here. In the article, they discuss the troubles that XBOX One has been facing (mainly its lack of exclusive games compared to the competition) and have heard that future acquisitions may be in the companies future. One of those companies that have been rumored is in fact EA. Check out a blurb from the article below:

Some of the names being thrown around as possible acquisitions by Microsoft are, frankly, astounding, even unthinkable. But the fact that they are doing the rounds is instructive. The most recent one we heard (from a reliable source close to Microsoft) was, in fact, Electronic Arts. We also heard a whisper about Valve and about Korean outfit PUBG Corp., which Microsoft last year signed to a timed exclusive for its hit survival shooter, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

“Because of where we are in the lifecycle of all these things, I’m expecting to hear Microsoft announce something very, very shortly,” said van Dreunen.

Things would get very interesting to say the least if something like this happens. As always, we will keep you informed if anything happens. More as it develops.
