Microsoft planned to buy Sega and Bungie to “expand Xbox Game Pass’s reach

Internal documents have revealed that Microsoft had ambitious plans to acquire a range of developers, including Sega and Bungie. 

In addition to Xbox head Phil Spencer’s testimony, the ongoing legal battle between the US Federal Trade Commission and Microsoft over the latter’s plans to acquire Activision Blizzard has led to the revelation of a range of confidential documents. Among these was an email from Spencer sent in 2020 outlining a strategy to “accelerate Xbox Game Pass” through the designation of “acquisition targets” (via The Verge).
