Xbox has announced a deal to buy Activision Blizzard, the company behind Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and many other major gaming franchises

Announced on Xbox Wire, CEO of Microsoft Gaming Phil Spencer announced that

Microsoft PR has confirmed that the deal is worth $68.7 billion, many times the $7.5 billion it paid for ZeniMax Media in 2020. As a point of comparison, Take-Two recently acquired mobile giant Zynga for $12.7 billion, which was the biggest gaming acquisition in history. That has been comfortably eclipsed by this deal.

Please don't. We know the fate of things that happens when Microsoft acquires them.

Woah.... This is huge, out of nowhere.
Now make Call Of Duty exclusive to Xbox and PC, and bring them to Game pass..

Britain's antitrust regulator said Microsoft Corp's $69 billion acquisition of "Call of Duty" maker Activision Blizzard could harm competition in gaming consoles, subscription services and cloud gaming, and it needs to be investigated in depth.
