Microsoft, one of the world’s largest technology brands, has been following an expansionist policy for a long time. In this context, the company, which has been on its radar for the last few years, made its first important purchase with Bethesda. However, thinking that this is just the beginning, the company detonated the real bomb with Activision-Blizzard, which it promised to pay approximately 69 billion dollars.
However, with Microsoft’s announcement that it has started transactions to purchase Activision-Blizzard, there was a reaction from many fronts, especially regulatory agencies, and the US Federal Competition Authority FTC launched an investigation against Microsoft.
Microsoft’s Activision defense made waves
As part of this investigation, the American technology giant, which gave its first defense with a 40-page report the other day, claimed that it did not know when the most important game of Activision, Call of Duty, was released, in which studio this game was developed, and how much it cost the company.
In other words, he stated that he did not know anything about Call of Duty, which is the most important reason why Microsoft bought Activision and paid 69 billion dollars to this company. This statement is, of course, purely strategic. According to experts, with this statement, Microsoft wants to show that its aim is not Call of Duty, and therefore its competitors do not need to be afraid of Call of Duty. Of course, who would believe that, that is unknown.
