Enad Global 7 has made a few moves recently with the acquisition of not just Pranha Games Inc. but also Big Blue Bubble. The press release indicates that the acquisition agreements are meant to follow their strategy to "perform complementary acquisitions to establish a stronger industry position."
Remember Microsoft's $7.5 billion purchase of Zenimax Media and their child companies, including Bethesda Softworks? A new interview from Kotaku with Phil Spencer sheds some more light on that.
By now, you have no doubt seen the news of Microsoft's $7.5 billion buyout of Zenimax Media - the parent company of Bethesda Softworks.

The acquisition will include all of Bethesda's library, including Elder Scrolls, and Fallout.
