[quote]Microsoft are reportedly close to finalising a deal with a massive developer and industry insiders believe that it just might be Take-Two Interactive, the parent company to Rockstar Games and 2K. If this happens, Grand Theft Auto VI just might be a Xbox Series X|S and Windows 10 exclusive.[/quote]

 

There are many news stories about MSFT buying another studio like SEGA etc.

Well we soon know this next week duing E3.

This is absolutely not even in the realm of possibility IMO... lol. Not to mention how bad that article from that "super reputable" clickbait site is.

 

T2 never teased an acquisition for themselves, they just said that more mergers and acquisitions are going to happen in the industry. Secondly, Private Division could still make a deal with Microsoft without MS having to buy all of T2, especially as PD make more indie-styled games (a deal for [email protected] or something?). Third, never would a megaseries like GTA be exclusive to one platform (other than DLC like The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony which were timed exclusives on the Xbox). Fourth... T2 has a much better relationship with Sony, as most of their marketing campaigns are done with them and they had that whole Agent thing (RIP), than Xbox.

 

I would believe more in a Sony acquisition than a MS acquisition. And even then that'd be a bit ridiculous.

TBH if anything I would think Sony would be the one with the Deal with Take2. But I really don't want it either way. 

 

On a side note I hope MS stops buying companies its actually really annoying Id rather not have a monopoly in the gaming space. And This is coming from someone with all Current Gen Systems.

They can't acquire Take Two because of their sports games. The NBA and WWE would not like having their licensed games being sold on only one console.

 

If Microsoft is going to buy anything they might buy WB games division. After AT&T sold off Warner Bros to discovery Warner Bros might look to sell them off.

T2 is big (>$20B market value), financially thriving and successful to be acquired.
