Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion
Satya Nadella says the deal "will play a key role in the development of metaverse platforms."
Did not see this coming.
“Microsoft doesn’t detail exactly how it will approach solving these issues, and the company says Bobby Kotick will continue to serve as CEO of Activision Blizzard for now. It looks like Kotick won’t remain once the deal is fully closed and after the transition period to Microsoft, though. Spencer, formerly head of gaming at Microsoft, is now CEO of Microsoft Gaming, and the company says the Activision Blizzard business will report directly to Spencer.”Posted on 2022-01-18T16:10:35+0000
