Xbox Hiring to Help It Find More Acquisitions – IGN Daily Fix

Today on IGN The Fix: Games, Xbox is hiring a new employee to help manage its merger and acquisitions program – suggesting that there may well be more studio acquisitions in its future. As reported by Video Games Chronicle, Microsoft is seeking a Manager of Gaming Strategy and Development whose responsibilities will include, “Developing and evaluating the business case for content & technology acquisitions.” It seems to indicate the company has no plans to slow down its purchasing of developers and other gaming companies. Game developers are upset over an Apple policy change that will see apps deleted if they’ve not been recently updated. On Twitter, Protopop Games (below) shared an email from Apple that said their app had not been updated in “a significant amount of time” and would therefore be deleted from the App Store. Diablo: Immortal is now coming to PC as well as mobile – and it will arrive for both platforms on June 2. The MMO was originally announced solely for Android and iOS, but Blizzard Entertainment revealed in a blog post that a PC port will be released in open beta alongside the mobile version.
