Right after taking claim of Bethesda, Xbox seeks to strengthen it’s forces on asian territory – eyeing Konami and Sega in its wake. The US$7.5 billion merger of ZeniMax Media (the company that owns id Software and Bethesda Softworks) proves that Microsoft is at that point where it can do anything it wants – and this includes buying Konami and Sega if it needs strength in Japan.
Acquiring Konami and Sega would not only make Xbox a stronger brand in Japan, but it would also appeal to the millions of fans of the two companies in other areas of the world who happen to own an Xbox console. Both Microsoft head Satya Nadella and Xbox chief Phil Spencer have made it clear that the acquisition of established game developers is the right direction to take, so maybe there will be some further studio expansion coming in 2021.
