Just a few weeks ago, investors approved the sale to the technology conglomerate and prepared for a process that will end in 2023, although everything indicates that this agreement is going very fast.

To simplify it, the president details the stage the process is at with Activision Blizzard: “One of our lawyers sums it up nicely by saying, ‘We’re coming to the end of the beginning, and now we’re entering at the beginning of the middle‘” Despite this, Smith is aware that there is still a lot of work to be done: “It is a long process and we are still in a phase where we answer questions. For us, of course, the sooner it is done, the better, but we want to respect the process“.

We will continue to monitor the development of this agreement and the various obstacles that stand in the way of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard. In this sense, both companies have encountered obstacles such as lawsuits criticizing the transaction and many doubts about Bobby Kotick, whose fate is still uncertain. Be that as it may, the tech giant goes ahead with its plan and, it seems, will stop at nothing.
