According to Game Rant, the $69 billion deal is made to have a low-cost deal for both parties and for Robert Kotick to retain his position as Activision-Blizzard CEO until the end of the regulatory review. The Swedish agency claims that the process has been a sham and that Microsoft colluded with Activision-Blizzard to acquire the studio “at a bargain price.”

“Our proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard was negotiated legally and fairly”

In any case, the companies did not sit idly by and responded against the lawsuit, Joe Christinat, one of their spokesmen, responded by stating that the Swedish agency is wrong, since everything has been done legally. It’s not yet clear what will come of this lawsuit, however, if the merger between Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard pans out, it will transform the owner of Xbox into one of the world’s biggest gaming companies.
