Microsoft won’t acquire SEGA

Microsoft has been engaged in a never-ending buying frenzy. The company since is still vying to acquire Activision-Blizzard. Rumors that SEGA would be acquired during this deal started to circulate. A recent story from Bloomberg (via Engadget) claims that Microsoft is not purchasing SEGA.

For several years, Microsoft and SEGA have worked in close association with one another. The relationship between the two businesses has resulted in some titles finding homes on Xbox systems. We cannot contest the benefits of working with a company like Microsoft. We all wondered whether SEGA and Microsoft would advance their partnership given their tight collaboration. Since this is not a peculiar assumption given Microsoft’s past performance.

Microsoft won’t purchase SEGA

SEGA has decided to go with its own unique identity instead of collaborating with Microsoft. It was confirmed by the company’s COO, Shuji Utsumi. He stated to Bloomberg that the company is not open for purchase. This is true despite rumors that Microsoft was interested in buying SEGA in the future.

In reality, the corporation wants to maintain its independence. In all honesty, it is assumed that Sonic Frontiers’ success served as inspiration for this choice. This game received a lot of buzzes before it was released, which was justified because it is a TONNE OF FUN, and it did extremely well in terms of sales. Well, it could be the other way around if the game had been a flop.
