As previously reported, it is scheduled for today in Brussels the next phase of the decidesive meeting between Microsoft and the United Kingdom to discuss the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which will also be attended by Sony and representatives of other businesses.
The announcement of the meeting had already been made last week, but it is a private meeting held behind closed doors, so it will be difficult to obtain exact and first-hand information on the subject. In addition to Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision Blizzard, Jim Ryan will speak at the event.
According to Reuters, they should be represented by other companies such as Google, Nvidia, Valve, the European Games Developer Federation, as well as representatives of several other national antitrust bodies.
The outcome of today's meeting will be extremely important and interesting for anyone who wants to know more about the acquisition.
We recall that the EU had already filed formal objections to the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but it had shown itself open to discussion on appropriate remedies, and today's meeting will focus on this topic. Microsoft has announced that it has officially signed the deal that would allow Call of Duty to be available on Nintendo platforms for ten years, in the event that the acquisition were to go through, and the UNI Global Union union also agreed to the transaction.
