At the time of the writing of this news, there was a meeting between the European Commission, Microsoft, Activision Blizzard, Google, Nvidia, and Sony about the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by theXbox. However, as the discussion progressed, we became aware of what was said by the parties involved.
Brad Smith, Microsoft's president, said at the time, "there isn't a great agreement with Sony," but I'm hopeful it will happen. Smith said he has a signed agreement with Sony.
Sony claims that the'milestone game' was only available on 120 million devices when the deal was approved. It will be available on an additional 150 million devices if the agreement goes through.
"The main concern people have expressed about this acquisition is that Call of Duty will be less available to people," he said, but we've demonstrated that the opposite will hold true.
Smith also states that he is optimistic about the good conclusion of the agreement, since it shows Nvidia that it has signed a contract with Microsoft. In fact, the Redmond company has agreed to publish all Xbox PC games over the Nvidia cloud.
Activision Blizzard reportedly accused Sony of merely attempting to "protect its 20-year dominance of video games". Activision believes the merger with Microsoft will only increase competition and "create excellent opportunities" for employees.
Smith was then asked if they might sell the Call of Duty brand in order to complete the transaction. The response was, "I don't think it's feasible for one component of the company to be carved out of the rest."
Sony continues to refuse to enter into any transaction, according to the experts.
