Microsoft Activision Blizzard Purchase TechRaptor Podcast

In what is likely the biggest news in at least the last few years, Microsoft is buying Activision Blizzard, which brings up a whole lot of questions. What is Xbox’s future? What about Game Pass? Who steps up to be their competitor?

NOTE: We were asked to pull down our written preview due to an embargo change, so we redirected it temporarily to this page. You can read that on February 2nd!

We’ve also got our Dying Light 2 impressions, and we had the chance to play some of the upcoming Total War: Warhammer III.
