Talking Point: Do You Think Microsoft Will Be Able To Acquire Activision Blizzard?

Another day, another set of stories linked to Microsoft's attempted acquisition of Activision Blizzard! The focus at the moment is on Microsoft's commitment to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo Switch and Steam over the next ten years, and that also extends to PlayStation if Sony is willing to agree to the offer.

The thing is though, we're at a point now where the deal really could go either way. There have been suggestions that the FTC might or might not oppose the deal very soon, while both the UK Competition and Markets Authority and European Commission are proceeding with in-depth investigations into the acquisition as we speak.

We've always been pretty confident here at Pure Xbox that Microsoft will find a way to get this deal over the line, but it's definitely not a guarantee just yet. Of course, Sony's public criticism of the acquisition has caused setbacks for Microsoft over the past few months as well, with various regulators taking those criticisms very seriously.

So, where do we go from here? Do you think the FTC will approve the deal, Sony will agree to the 10-year Call of Duty contract, and both the CMA and EU will pass it through as well? Or, do you think one of these regulators will oppose the deal in the coming weeks, causing havoc for the acquisition and placing it in potentially severe jeopardy?

Let us know your thoughts about it all down in the poll and comments below.

Will The Acquisition Go Through?
