The European Commission is set to rule on Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard, and the gaming world is watching with baited breath.

This is a huge deal for many reasons. First and foremost, it would give Microsoft a controlling stake in one of the world’s largest gaming companies. With Activision Blizzard’s massive portfolio of popular franchises like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and Candy Crush, Microsoft would become a major player in the gaming industry overnight.

The deal also has major implications for the future of the gaming industry. If the acquisition is approved, it would create a massive imbalance of power in the industry, with Microsoft holding a controlling stake in some of the most popular gaming franchises. This could give Microsoft an unfair advantage when it comes to negotiating deals with other publishers and developers.

Finally, the deal could have a major impact on the European gaming market. Activision Blizzard is a major player in the European gaming market, and if the deal is approved, Microsoft would become a major player in the region overnight. This could lead to higher prices for games in Europe, as Microsoft would be able to leverage its market position to charge more for its products.

The European Commission is set to rule on the deal in the coming weeks, and the gaming world will be waiting with baited breath.
