Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard is slowly gaining approval from regulatory boards across the world. This comes despite Sony's complaints and concerns.
According to Reuters, the latest country to approve Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard is Serbia. Three regions have now approved the deal “unconditionally”. However, it's still being scrutinised by the EU, UK, USA and other regulatory boards around the world.
Microsoft believes the Activision Blizzard deal will be approved while Sony remains adamant the deal is bad for the gaming industry. It's thought that Microsoft will be offering concessions to the EU regulatory board to push the deal along. The company has already offered Sony a 10-year Call of Duty deal to ensure the series remains on PlayStation consoles if the deal goes through.
It's unclear when the regulatory boards will finish their investigations into the proposal. The EU and UK have both launched in-depth reviews of the deal while it's been claimed the USA's FTC may try to block it.
