The Xbox-Activision Blizzard affair did, does, and will be debated for a long time to come due to its gigantic reach.
A maneuver that will bring into Xbox Game Pass (to which you can also subscribe on Amazon) all the video games of Activision and Blizzard, including very important franchises.
An acquisition that was immediately at risk because it was at the center of the right controls by regulatory bodies around the world.
Many of these have rightly begun to investigate the details of this maneuver by getting in the way above all for the competition theme.
There have been back and forth in the deal between Xbox and Activision Blizzard , many people have had their say on it and will continue to do so.
Among them is Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft , who has taken stock of the situation and given his opinion on the outcome of the maneuver (via VGC ).
Nadella said he was “very confident” that the acquisition will obtain final regulatory approval, despite the extent of the same.
“Obviously, any acquisition of this size will be scrutinized, but we are very, very confident that we will get out of it,” , Nadella told Bloomberg .
On the subject of competition, which could be called into question by the fulfillment of the Xbox-Activision agreement, Satya Nadella specified that Microsoft is the fourth or fifth exponent of the video game industry market.
Therefore, since Sony with PlayStation is currently much higher, Nadella wants Microsoft to be able to compete normally .
On the subject of acquisitions, which serve to make Microsoft and Xbox even stronger, Phil Spencer recently said that they will come others in the future.
But if there are regulators or entities in general that get in the way, there are also those who are starting to give the go-ahead for the Xbox-Activision Blizzard deal in recent months.
