Microsoft’s Activision Blizzard Acquisition Approved by Brazilian Regulator

Regulators in Brazil officially approved Microsoft’s marked acquisition of Activision Blizzard, with the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) announcing on Monday that they had agreed to the merger “with no restrictions.”

“Considering the huge popularity of Call of Duty, it is reasonable to infer that if Activision Blizzard games were no longer available on Sony consoles, PlayStation users could decide to migrate to Xbox, or even a PC, to continue having access to franchise games,” CADE said in an official statement. “On the other hand, it’s also reasonable to assume that if upcoming Call of Duty games became exclusive to the Microsoft ecosystem, players loyal to the PlayStation brand could simply abandon the series, migrating their demand to other games available on their favourite console.”

Brazil is the latest to approve Microsoft’s proposed acquisition and it comes on the heels of Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Competition’s decision back in August that it had “no objections” to the deal.
