"Blizzard employees in France are preparing to strike over the company's decision to close its office in Versailles. Less than two weeks ago, Bloomberg reported that the World of Warcraft developer would completely shut down its Versailles site, which among other things handles marketing, customer support, and localization, after plans to relocate employees to London fell through due to Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic."

"Xbox boss Phil Spencer has stated that the Xbox Game Pass subscription service is “completely sustainable” at its current price.

It was recently revealed that Xbox Game pass has attracted 15 million subscribers, and between convincing EA to come on board from November 10 and adding cloud streaming at no additional charge, we expect that number to rise again."
