Microsoft’s Activision Acquisition Decision Postponed By European Commission

It has been a really whirlwind few months in the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, filled with drama, uncertainty, and many regulations.

As it was officially announced by the European Commission, they have extended their decision deadline from April 25th, 2023, to May 22nd, 2023. This delay is due to newly submitted remedies from Microsoft in hopes that they will work on their side.

Here are a few words from a Microsoft Spokesperson:

“We have stood behind our promise to bring Call of Duty to more gamers on more devices by entering into agreements to bring the game to the Nintendo console and cloud game streaming services offered by Nvidia, Boosteroid and Ubitus,”

“We are now backing up that promise with binding commitments to the European Commission, which will ensure that this deal benefits gamers into the future.”

What is your opinion on this whole situation? How do you feel about it?
