The Competition and Market Authority in British (CMA which has the authority to block the biggest ever deal in video gaming has forced Microsoft to come up with a new proposal to complete the US$69 billion purchase of Call of Duty Maker Activision. The CMA still stands by its original decision to block the deal.
This has made the Microsoft and Activision to divest the cloud streaming right of Activision outside of the European Economic Area to Ubisoft for the Activision PC and console games that are current and to be released in the next 15 years.
According to CMA “The terms of the transaction will allow Ubisoft to commercialize these rights to other gaming services provider.”
