Microsoft to acquire Epic?

1 min read

This is the latest rumour to be doing the rounds at GDC this year, now that Bungie has run off and left Microsoft with no killer titles it is logical to think that Microsoft may be looking for a new friend.

And who better to approach than Epic, the guys who made the hugely successful Gears of War and Unreal Tournament titles. Well the first response is to think that there is no reason for Epic to join Microsoft and then you hear that Microsoft may be offering $1 billion… that is a huge chunk of change that could sway hearts, minds and wallets of the Epic owners.

So is it going to happen? I highly doubt it but I do expect Microsoft and Epic to announce a new killer 360 exclusive soon enough, and it isn’t going to be Gears of War 2.
