Bomb: Microsoft will acquire Activision Blizzard - developer of Call of Duty!

Microsoft, without warning, has just exploded a very high-caliber surprise, after acquiring Zenimax, Bethesda's parent company for $ 7.5 billion, and today is announcing a move similar to Activision Blizzard, the developer of Call of Duty !

Phil Spencer recently announced via his Twitter account that Activision will be joining Microsoft, which means titles like Call of Duty, Warcraft, Candy Crush, Tony Hawk, Diablo, Overwatch, Spyro, Hearthstone, Guitar Hero, Crash Bandicoot , StarCraft will become the property of the Xbox brand.

Reports say the deal for the acquisition of giant Activision Blizzard Company amounted to $ 95.00 per share, or about $ 68.7 billion.

Spencer confirmed in his tweets that he is happy to have Activision join the company and is looking forward to working with it to provide players with a fun gaming experience. The Microsoft statement states:

We are on a mission to expand the community of fun and games for everyone on the planet. We all know that gaming is the most vital form of entertainment in the world, and we have experienced the power of social connection and the friendship that gaming makes possible.

As we pursue this mission, it is very exciting to announce that Microsoft has agreed to acquire Activision Blizzard.

Over the decades, Activision Blizzard Studios has earned the respect, enjoyment and enjoyment of audiences, and we are very excited to be working with publisher Activision and Blizzard Entertainment Studios, Beenox, Demonware, Digital Legends, High Moon Studios, Infinity Ward, King, Major League Gaming, Radical Entertainment, Raven Software, Sledgehammer Games, Toys for Bob, Treyarch to offer players the best experiences.

The company added in its statement that until the completion of the procedures for the completion of the agreement, Microsoft will continue its cooperation with Activision, and both will work independently as it was in the past, but with the completion of the agreement and Activision officially joins. Microsoft will be directly responsible for Activision's business, as was the case with Bethesda before. .

Microsoft has confirmed that upon completion of this agreement, it will provide as many Activision games as possible to players through the Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, which now have 25 million subscribers. Of course, much of this agreement is due to Microsoft providing more value to this service.

In addition, Activision's titles will help Microsoft in its plans to improve Cloud Gaming, which will allow more players to join the Xbox system, regardless of their device, whether it's a mobile phone, Xbox , computer, or even smart TV.

So congratulations to Microsoft for this huge deal, but what’s interesting was Spencer’s recent statement that they made changes to the way they dealt with Activision in some things, so no one thought that change would reach the acquisition limit !!
