Not long ago, the British Competition and Market Authority approved a license for Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard, clearing a major obstacle to Microsoft's smooth acquisition.

Today, The Fair Trade Commission of Japan released a 43-page investigation report saying that the acquisition would not cause material damage to competition.


Sony has stressed more than once that if Microsoft wins the call of Duty, it will be a big problem for PlayStation and gamers as a whole.

But obviously, this argument does not affect the Japanese official decision-making.On the contrary, it produces a result similar to ldquo; backstab-rdquo; in the final identification.

So far, Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard has been approved by national regulators such as Brazil, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Chile and Serbia.After that, the deal will also face scrutiny by regulators in the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, South Korea and other countries.

In addition, the European Union and the British CMA also need to make a final decision before April, which will determine whether the acquisition can be landed.
