The UK Competition and Markets Authority is still investigating Xbox's Activision Blizzard deal, with the final report currently set to be published by April 26th. While we've heard plenty about Sony's clear objections to the merger, today the CMA posted new findings relating to other gaming competitors.
The authority says that out of a total of six companies spoken to, three felt that if the deal went through, it "would have a negative impact on competition". Two of the other groups expressed no concerns, while the final participant commented that it was too early to judge how things would shake out.
Who exactly these companies are remains secret for now, so we don't know which company each verdict relates to. The CMA does detail some of what each of them talked about though.
One third party labelled Call of Duty a "driver of console purchase decision-making" and felt that creating a competitor to Call of Duty would cost even more money than developing CoD itself. We're not making guesses as to who that company might be... honest!
