Microsoft’s takeover of Activision Blizzard is almost certain
The latest reports suggest that Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard could take place in the European Union. It turns out that the finalization of the transaction is closer than we think.
Microsoft appears to be closing in on the $69 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard. A few moments ago, I wrote to you that Sony is forced to disclose trade secrets to its biggest rival in the person of the American giant. This event brings the Redmond company closer to achieving the desired goal.
However, it turns out that’s not all, as it’s possible that the whole deal will be finalized in the European Union.
According to Reuters, the whole process would be decided in favor of the Redmond giant. The European Commission has time to examine the whole matter until April 25. What is most interesting – Microsoft most likely he won’t have to sell assets such as the Call of Duty franchise to close the deal.
Microsoft close to acquiring Activision Blizzard
I think Microsoft’s takeover of Activision Blizzard was only a matter of time. Some time ago we informed you that the games of the American company will appear on the NVIDIA GeForce NOW service. All thanks to the agreement reached by the two companies. Add to that Sony’s demand to disclose trade secrets and what this news is about, and it turns out that Microsoft isn’t that far off from closing the deal on a positive note.
If the takeover takes place, we will witness one of the most important events in the history of entertainment and electronic business.
