Really good read.  Great to hear they are taking a far different approach than how they used to handle 1st Party.  

 

Also, sounds like we can definitely expect more acquisitions.

We have really strong support from Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, and Amy Hood, the CFO. And there's been no signal at all that we should be slowing down, but just to go at a pace that is maintainable for us as a leadership team. We're always out there talking to people. But it has to be the right opportunity."

"With Psychonauts 2, we could see the end of our budget coming up, and so we had cut a lot of stuff," Schafer explains. "We had cut our boss fights. Now we are able to put those back in, and we're like 'we think people would have noticed if we didn't have those boss fights'. Being able to complete the game in the way that it was meant to be was very important."

 

Awesome to hear.  This has always been one of the more exciting things about MS's acquisitions.  They're not going after the big guns usually, just snapping up a bunch of the mid-sized ones that needed a boost.
