It’s the Eurogamer Newscast.
Hello and welcome to another special episode of Eurogamer’s Newscast, as another two huge acquisitions shake the video games industry. Sony is buying Bungie for $3.6bn, of course, but let’s not forget the beloved Wordle has also been snapped up by the New York Times.
Joining me for this episode are Eurogamer news reporters Ed Nightingale and Victoria Kennedy, as well as deputy editorial director Wesley Yin-Poole. Together, we discuss what Sony is actually getting for its $3.6bn if not exclusive games – or whether the companies are simply being coy about their true future plans.
We also chat Wordle – including our own choices of starting words – as we digest the news that the simple game may not be ad-free forever. Is it a big sale worth celebrating, or an even bigger sell-out? Join us, as we discuss.
