Microsoft will continue buying more game development studios, said Xbox boss Phil Spencer. Spencer spoke at a Wall Street Journal conference on Monday. He said that Microsoft would “definitely” purchase more studios. However, there’s no timetable for when these deals might occur.

“We’re definitely not done,” Spencer said, as reported by Tom Warren. “There is no time limit or quota that I must meet to acquire studios. But if we can find one where we are a good match… Absolutely. “

Spencer didn’t give any indication as to what studios Xbox might be looking at to acquire, but he has said Microsoft wants to buy another Japanese studio.

Microsoft’s last big gaming acquisition was ZeniMax/Bethesda, which it paid $7.5 billion to buy. Microsoft now has 23 game development studios spread across the world, working on a variety of projects. Sony has also been purchasing studios in recent years. In 2021 alone, Sony has acquired four studios, including Bluepoint, Firesprite, Nixxes, and Housemarque.

Also during the interview, Spencer addressed the rumors that Xbox Game Pass has reached 30 million subscribers. He downplayed the rumor, instead pointing to the 18 million figure that Xbox announced in January.

No doubt the number of Game Pass subscribers has increased since then, but Microsoft likely won’t share a new number until it wants to–perhaps at the Microsoft earnings on October 26.

In other news, 2021 is the 20th anniversary of Xbox, and Microsoft has a lot of celebrations in store.
