OW and the Diablo games maybe but I don't see them adding WoW to gamepass unless it goes full FTP.
FTP would be the best move

for it to die a horrible death that it deserves

I'm torn, I want Kotick's leadership gone and buying him out and replacing him seems like the best way, even though they say they'll keep him after the sale, but he's already richer than god and I don't want him getting any more.

Also this is totally all happening due to the ActiBlizz California Lawsuit right now, their stock price has seen a 40% backslide with no signs of stopping since the suit was filed, this feels like too easy of a way out for those people who are responsible for the suit in the first place. Now they get their payout and can run away.
they made the purchase 45% over market rate for the stock :eek:

For one thing, I don't expect Kotick is willing to take instruction, he's too much of a "top dog" asshole to be under anyone else's control.

I could only imagine Spencer ordering him to do anything he didn't want to do would drive him up the fucking wall.

Kinda pissed about it. I was banking on Diablo immortal
Youre pissed that you got 30% bump in a single day?

I mean I'm probably the only person here that believed Immortal will fucking dominate the mobile game space when it comes out, but it cant get any better than this...

The implications of this is fucking wild. What Microsoft has accomplished with XBox is just amazing. Especially with the stumbles they've had.
Idk about "accomplished with Xbox"

Xbox has been mediocre for years. Gamepass was their first actual win. Buying Bethesda and activ is more flexing their non gaming money in order to make Xbox worth something

Meanwhile pc users reap most of the benefits without paying Microsoft much more than $15 a month for gamepass and a $9 cd key

And I suppose all the free data mining
