Xbox has one-upped Take-Two's recent purchase of Zynga by acquiring publishing and development giant Activision Blizzard for nearly $70 billion. That brings franchises like Call of Duty, Crash Bandicoot, Diabo, Tony Hawk, Overwatch, StarCraft, Warcraft, and tons more under the Microsoft umbrella. The deal won't be finalized for at least another year, and of course talks of an Xbox monopoly are already making the rounds on the internet. And what does this mean for embattled Activision Blizzard head Bobby Kotick? And what of multi-platform games like Call of Duty: Warzone? Let us know what you think about this insane deal in the comments.

Five days ago, gaming giant Take-Two bought Zynga for $13 billion. But before that, Zynga bought Chartboost for $250 million. What's going on? Why is a gaming company buying an ad network? And what does this say about the future of games and media? In this episode of TechFirst, we chat with Zynga Chief Product Officer Scott Koenigsberg and Chartboost CEO Rich Izzo. Questions we discuss: Zynga bought an ad network for $250M. A decade ago that would have sounded insane. Why? We know Zynga for games. But you're not the only combination of gaming and adtech. What's driving this merger frenzy and consolidation? How does having Chartboost make Zynga better? How does having Zynga make Chartboost better? Are there downsides? Competitive issues? What's evolving in tech and platforms that is changing the competitive landscape? What kind of platform that you can build will be well-optimized for the future state? Zynga has acquired other gaming studios as well. What's the goal? Mobile was a phase-shift in technology that privileged some platforms and networks and deprioritized others. What's the next one … do you have metaverse bets, and what kind of timetable to you envision there? How will this change your business? Planning to still be acquisitive?

On today's IGN The Fix: Games, Footage of the Elden Ring character creator has leaked, and fans are pleasantly surprised to find it's a much more in-depth system than that featured in Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Grand Theft Auto parent company Take-Two just bought Zynga in a practically unprecedented $12.7 billion deal, and part of the reasoning is that it wants the opportunity to bring some of its biggest console and PC game properties to mobile. Those who are looking to purchase Dying Light 2 on February 4, 2022, and beyond will be happy (or terrified) to know that developer Techland has confirmed it will take "at least 500 hours" to fully complete the game. Narz has all that in your Daily Fix!
