FTC Seeks to Block Microsoft’s Takeover of Activision

The US Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint on Thursday seeking to block Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard. This is due to concerns that withholding access to popular titles such as Call of Duty would hurt competitors. The agency claims it has a history of denying competitors access to content acquired by Microsoft.

“Microsoft has already shown it can and will withhold content from its gaming rivals.” Said Holly Vedova, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, said: “Today, we are trying to stop Microsoft from taking control of major independent game studios and using it to undermine competition in multiple dynamic and fast-growing gaming markets.”
