Pretty sure they bought them so all those studios can make crap for Gamepass. That subscription model is much more lucrative than AAA game development. The business side is really all ever microsoft cared about. Why have they not put a fraction of those billions into actual game development? Why sleep on an entire generation? Why buy an entire parent company wholesale? Most likely it is to consolidate a constant influx of mediocre content for their subscription service. Pretty sure they can market this acquisition as a pretty big push for Gamepass, even if AAA game development is completely unsustainable on a subscription service. But ofcourse regular low quality content isn't.
