Sony really has you: stabbing the opponent in the back

Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard deal is still stuck in the regulatory layer.

A few days ago, Microsoft's chief communications officer Frank X. Shaw regretted that Sony poured out its grievances to EU officials, saying that if Microsoft's acquisition was reached, it would not be able to acquire the same rights and interests as it did in the past when Activision was the sole operator of the IPs, such as Call of Duty.

Shaw noted that Microsoft has promised to take steps to address many of the merger's issues, including issuing Sony a 10-year-long Call of Duty licensing agreement.

It is reported that last Wednesday, Sony Hootsuite CEO Jim Ryan met with EU antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager, although both sides did not disclose the details of communication, but outsiders believe that the boy certainly did not say good things about Microsoft.

Despite the considerable resistance, Xbox chief Phil Spencer told IGN that he is even more confident than 1 year ago to complete the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Now, Microsoft still hopes to complete the acquisition of Activision Blizzard in July 2023, with a deal price of $69 billion.
