The Microsoft/Activision deal has been given a preliminary approval by the UK’s CMA and that means it will be closing within a fortnight. The biggest deal in tech history is coming to a close.

Suddenly the “coming on…

Game engines aren’t supposed to cause major problems for their users. Usually when they do, it’s accidental. This week Unity bucked that trend.
And while there is no shortage of column space around this very issue, it’s worth another look. It could very easily impact on the way we all play our games old and new.
