Buying Fromsoft would be kinda organic because they have worked on creating IP together and there teams worked together……. They’ve made Demon Souls, Bloodborne and Deracine together with Japan Studios.
The definition of organic if that is important to everyone is:
A publisher buying a studio they have never developed a game with before = not organic growth to the company.
Playstation buying Haven, Bungie, Psygnosis, Firesprite.
MS buying Ninja Theory, Activision, Bethesda, Mojang.
Working with a studio, creating IP together and expanding that studio until you Aquire them = organic
Building a studio from scratch= organic.
Playstation done with Naughty Dog, Insomniac, Bluepoint, HouseMarque etc
Xbox done with Undead Labs and DoubleFine in some ways.
Its not really important but if people wanna keep throwing the definition around then there it is. Also everytime a xbox fan says but I thought Sony only does organic, the answer is….. Not anymore since Xbox studios is buying publishers, studios and Ip’s. Sony has to do the same. The last time they done the same is buying Wipeout with Psygnosis
