It is no secret that Microsoft is willing to do anything to complete the purchase of Activision Blizzard, and the truth is that this is totally understandable, since this operation could give you a huge boost in the video game sector, and also in the gaming sector for mobile devices, and it would even allow it to improve the value of one of its star services, Game Pass.
Everything I just said is very easy to understand. With the purchase of Activision Blizzard at Microsoft they could shape exclusivities that would make Xbox Series X and Series S more attractive, they would also take over some of the biggest franchises in the world of mobile gaming (let’s not forget that King would be included in the purchase), and could also bring the Call of Duty saga to Game Pass.
However, we already know that Microsoft does not have it easy to complete that purchase transaction, and to make matters worse now things have become a little more difficult for him. Google and NVIDIA have joined companies concerned about Microsoft’s possible purchase of Activision Blizzard, saying that such an acquisition could give the company an “unfair advantage” in many sectors, including online gaming. cloud and gaming on mobile devices.
The information we have clarifies that NVIDIA is not really against this operation, and that in reality it only wants equal and free treatment to be guaranteed in titles as important as the Call of Duty saga. As for Google, its degree of opposition has not been totally clear, but like both companies will be a testifying part of the judicial process initiated by the FTC It is evident that we will soon find out.
I think that if Call of Duty was not owned by Activision Blizzard, the purchase operation by Microsoft would have already gone ahead. I understand that this title has enormous weight, but it seems that in the end we are forgetting other very important thingssuch as the interest generated by other franchises such as Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch or Candy Crush, among many others, which would also end up in the hands of Microsoft.
