Activision Blizzard’s $69 billion acquisition by Microsoft is anticipated to proceed in the EU. Sources familiar with the situation told Reuters in a recent report that recent licensing agreements between Microsoft and businesses like Nintendo and Nvidia are “expected to address EU antitrust concerns.”

There were worries about getting the deal approved. The European Commission might make Microsoft surrender properties like Call of Duty. The report says it’s unlikely that’s the case.

Sources informed in late February that Microsoft was “becoming increasingly confident” that the agreement would be authorized. Even internally, the firm started to think that the purchase would be authorized “with or without” Sony’s support. Microsoft has made Sony a 10-year promise to retain Call of Duty games on the PlayStation.

EU Satisfaction Is A Crucial Agreement Between Microsoft

The EU’s apparent satisfaction with Microsoft’s acquisition intentions removes a significant barrier for the company.

Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming, stated that the Nvidia partnership aims to make games more accessible to consumers. He claims that it’s not about limiting them to Xbox platforms only.

According to Spencer, Microsoft “remains committed to offering consumers more choice and exploring new methods to extend how people play. “This cooperation will increase the number of games like Call of Duty in NVIDIA’s library while giving creators more options for streaming game offerings. We are pleased to provide players with new options for playing their favorite games.
