Biggest takeover ever by Sony already wrapped up

Remember: the beginning of the year 2022 experienced a real earthquake with the announcement of the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard by the giant Microsoft. The American giant gave, in a way, the start of the acquisitions of this new year and, a few days later, the other company with the ogre appetite, namely Sony, had replied with the acquisition of Bungie. Admittedly, the billions were much fewer in number, but the announcement was no less spectacular because it represents for PlayStation its biggest acquisition.

At the time, the acquisition had caused a stir, giving rise to very mixed reactions, and as with Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard, this one would have to be studied carefully in order for the transaction to be fully concluded between the two parties. At the time of the announcement, Sony and PlayStation hoped that all of this would be finished by the end of 2022, but it is with great joy that the Japanese company announced, on July 15, that all of this will took much less time than expected. Only six months were needed for the deal to validate all of the FTC’s administrative criteria!

Two official acquisitions in the space of a few days

As said above, it was a very important week for Sony and PlayStation! After the formalization of the acquisition of the Haven studio, whose integration was announced last March, it is the turn of Sony’s biggest deal to be formalized ! The brand has split a message on social networks, relayed by the various international branches and by company executives. Remember, in passing, that if the company of Jade Raymond is currently working on a title exclusive to the PS5, it is another fate that awaits Bungie, the former studio owned by Microsoft.

With this enormous check, signed by Sony, the great family of PlayStation studios does indeed welcome a new member, but the Japanese firm does not fully control the studio, which retains its independence. This means that an important and close collaboration will take place between the two parties but that the studio’s current and future projects will remain accessible to all platforms. Moreover, behind the scenes of development, it seems that we are quite active around a mobile game and a new and exciting title.
