Xbox Global Publishing Has Some "Interesting Partnerships" - Report

Check out Corden's tweet below:

What's really set tongues wagging is the use of the whirlpool emoji at the end of the tweet, which many are taking to mean it could be linked to Ubisoft or Sega.

While rumours have continued to suggest Ubisoft games could be coming to Game Pass, and that Sega could be acquired by Xbox, tying the two in with the company's publishing business would likely mean more exclusive content from third-parties - like the way Yakuza: Like A Dragon launched first on Xbox, as an example.

Still, we'll wait and see but with Microsoft holding a new "What Next For Gaming" event this month, we could hear more then. Find out more here.

Microsoft has already bolstered its first-party studios with the acquisition of Bethesda being finalised this year. The move adds the likes of Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog, and Roundhouse Studios to Microsoft's first-party portfolio.
