Platforms are the future of gaming. $MSFT Game Pass for access to high quality IP at one reasonable price + $RBLX and @EpicGames for UGC. Consumers will still use @Steam and others for one-off purchases, but the majority of $ will accrue to platforms over next 5 years.

So it looks like RBLX stock is running higher on Tuesday thanks to the news that Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is acquiring Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI). That makes sense as we’ve seen stocks run higher in symphony with others in the same sector before.
And there’s no denying that today’s news has ATVI stock taking off. The company’s shares are sitting 27.3% higher as of Tuesday morning. RBLX stock isn’t quite that high but the gaming platform has seen its shares increase 2.1% at the same time.
