If you’re a Toys R Us kid, then your beloved Toys R Us stores may be on their way back.

According to a report from Reuters, the company’s debtors have cancelled the absolute auction, and plan to revive the Toys R Us brand.

Furthermore, the report states that a new Toys R Us and Babies R Us branding company is in the planning stages, and it will “maintains existing global license agreements,” and will allow for investment in opening new stores and “private brands business.” The report went on to say that much of the debt could be attributed to a $6.6 billion “leveraged buyout by private equity firms in 2005.”

Toys R Us met a sad, emotional end over the summer, unable to recover from their Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing  back in September 2017, which was filed in hopes that it would provide ample time for the company to reorganize so it could address owing lenders around $5 billion.

Spencer said that Microsoft wants to bring Xbox Game Pass to “every device”, while speaking during the San Francisco’s Barclays conference last week.

Certainly, Microsoft’s Project xCloud will lay the foundation for doing just that, as it will go to public testing in 2019 and would be the logical bridge to Xbox Game Pass on mobile.

“We need to make sure that we’re world-class at free-to-play content, but we also look at subscription as a much lower barrier way for a customer to build a library of content,” Spencer elaborated (h/t VG247). “So we built Xbox Game Pass.
