Saw on IGN today Microsoft or Time Warner are possible buyers of Activision Blizzard. This could be huge for Microsoft if they were to do that. Hopefully Starcraft Ghost would see light of day then.

I doubt that just because one of them purchases Activsion/Blizzard that Starcraft Ghost will be finished after all each company acts independently. THe Blizzard side handles the Blizz stuff WoW, Starcraft, Diablo and the Activision side handles Activison stuff Call of Duty Guitar Hero etc. In all honesty Activision/Blizzard makes so much money with Call of Duty games and World of Warcraft I dont know why they just dont be their own company instead of having someone else own them.

Because Bobby Kotick probably doesn't have the money to acquire all those shares from Viacom.

You don't need to make a thread about everything you see on IGN.

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

Yep, it's not like Activision is a big publisher or anything.
