The Redmond company has returned to speaking about the acquisition of Activision in a letter sent to the CMA following Microsoft's adoption.
Microsoft wished to reaffirm some of the reasons why Sony would not be affected by the takeover, and therefore by the possibility of exclusive video game series like Call Of Duty. One of the key points is that Activision would be the company's fifth most profitable third party publisher, with the first spots being occupied by EA, Ubisoft, and Take-Two Interactive.
Microsoft then wished to draw attention to Sony's alleged espionage of other platforms, as illustrated by the publication of ben 286 games exclusive to PlayStation, which also include titles such as God of War, The Last of Us, and Marvel Spider-Man.
Microsoft's arguments are certainly interesting, but we must also mention that the Xbox company's publishers are similar, in that Activision appears to be outside the top 10 most profitable third parties.
In any event, things for the Redmond corporation seem to be going pretty well. The European Commission is getting closer to granting approval for the acquisition of Activision, for what might be apocalyptic event.
