PlayStation ready to do anything to prevent the takeover of Activision Blizzard

Microsoft’s desire to buy Activision Blizzard does not please PlayStation and Sony seems ready to do anything to delay or stop the process.

A report from Dealreporter therefore claims that Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan personally visited EU headquarters to express his and PlayStation’s grave concerns over Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. .

PlayStation asks for help from Europe

Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

According to the said report, EU regulators have devoted themselves to an in-depth investigation into the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but above all its impact on competition in the video game industry. Because we can’t imagine that Microsoft with such a monster in its hands risks undermining the competition no matter what. PlayStation would have strongly criticized Microsoft’s efforts for this takeover, in particular about the Call of Duty license and its potential exclusivity and availability on the Xbox Game Pass. An entire program…

Jim Ryan therefore personally traveled to Brussels on September 8 to speak about PlayStation’s opinion on the matter. Even if the true nature of his visit is not very clear (again according to DealReporter).

For the record, Microsoft announced that it would acquire Activision Blizzard in January for $68.7 billion. Such a sum represents the largest acquisition in the history of video games. Enough to alert international regulators. And enough to shake PlayStation especially when you know that licenses like Call of Duty are at stake.
