Shacknews Dump - March 26, 2021

The stonks keep on flowing, Microsoft's empire keeps growing, and the Shacknews Dump shows no signs of slowing.


It’s another end of the week and we’re ready to help you close it out proper. GameStop’s stock situation continues to be a hot bed of fluctuation and Microsoft might buy everyone’s favorite social app, but there’s even more to talk about as we kick of another hot pressed Shacknews Dump.

On this March 26 edition of the Shacknews Dump, GameStop didn’t want to talk about its stock during a highly anticipated recent earnings call. Too bad nearly everyone else in the world did. Meanwhile, Microsoft has been hinting interest at purchasing Discord for a hot minute and may finally be closing in on a purchase. If Microsoft buys Discord, will it run the app the way it handled Skype? Heavens save us. In better news, light of our lives Ikumi Nakamura has started a new studio with the goal of a sustainable workplace without burnout as she moves towards preparing a new project.

Tune in as we talk about these and other hot gaming news topics on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET when the Shacknews Dump goes live. You can also catch it in the embed below.
