Source: DDM Games Investment Review Executive Summary Report Q1 2024

Value of Video Game M&As Q1 2024:

$2.0B across 41 investments

Q1 2024 M&As totaled $2.0B across 41 transactions (-97% in value and -9% in volume over Q4’s $70.0B across 45 transactions), a significant decrease due to Microsoft’s $68.7B acquisition of Activision Blizzard in Q4 2023.
