After Nintendo and Nvidia, Microsoft reached a guaranteed supply agreement with cloud gaming companies such as Ubitus and Boosteroid, promising to introduce Activision Blizzard games to these platforms, valid for 10 years, provided the acquisition is approved.


The regulator (FTC) was skeptical about the series of shows and asked Microsoft to provide details related to the 10-year guarantee agreement, such as internal documents of the company's decisions and business letters with third-party game operators:

& ldquo; Microsoft clearly intends to use these agreements to prove its innocence, but refuses to provide internal documents that will help reveal the motivation and transcripts of conversations with third parties. Microsoft must produce this evidence, otherwise the relevant guarantee agreement is not convincing. & rdquo

FTC also asked Microsoft to provide all internal documents related to the monopoly policy, such as the ZeniMax it has acquired, as well as the Activision-Blizzard production lineup it is trying to acquire. ZeniMax is the parent company of the Cup, and after it was acquired by Microsoft, with the exception of pre-signed works, the games being developed by the Cup have become exclusive works on the Microsoft platform, such as Starry Sky.

It can be said that the operation of FTC is not good. If you want to shake out Microsoft's careful thinking, it depends on whether the judge supports the relevant motion. After all, the main battlefield of the confrontation between the two sides is in the court.

Of course, Microsoft is not a little white rabbit. Two committee members of FTC have resigned, and before leaving, they even wrote a complaint to Biden, denouncing FTC Chairman Lina Khan for being arbitrary. Since this woman took office, the credibility of FTC has plummeted. Lao Bai, you must think of something. After all, she was promoted by your old man.

Lina Khan is a prominent antitrust expert in academia. Since she was in charge of FTC, she has repeatedly attacked the US IT giant's M & An attempts. Facebook and Amazon have both learned her skills, and now it is understandable that someone wants to bring her down.


In addition, Blizzard ARPG masterpiece Diablo 4 has enabled the Beta test preload, and the file size is as large as 80GB when the game contains only the preface and the first chapter:
