Rumour: Microsoft Spending 'A Lot Of Money' On Something Xbox Related, Not An Acquisition

It's rumour time! We've got some very open-ended gossip to share today - VentureBeat reporter and noted industry insider Jeff Grubb says he's been informed that Microsoft is spending "a lot of money" on something Xbox related that isn't a new studio acquisition (via Video Games Chronicle).

Unfortunately, that's pretty much all he has to go on - he admits that he doesn't know what it relates to, although he also mentions that "the way it was phrased to me, it would be a big deal."

Grubb made these comments on the latest episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast, speculating with his co-hosts that it could be something to do with bringing a major title to Xbox Game Pass, for example.

Ultimately though, it's all speculation for now. What do you think it could be? Share your thoughts below.
