Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick issued an update to his workers on the progress of Microsoft’s purchase of the company. In these emails, he mentions the multi-million dollar purchase has made Sony a ‘disappointing behaviour’based on the company’s accusations that they fear upcoming Call of Duty releases for Playstation will arrive ‘with more bugs and errors than on other consoles’.
Microsoft, for its part, has sought temporary solutions to prevent its purchase from critically affecting Sony, mainly with the deal to keep the parallel releases of Call of Duty with Playstation for ten years, but which they refuse to accept over and over again. time. Lulu Cheng Meservey, Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Head of Communications at Activision Blizzard, has already mentioned in her tweets that Jim Ryan, Director of Sony Interactive Entertainment, just want to block the purchase.
For his part, Kotick mentions that these unserious behaviors on the part of the Sony director will not affect the business relationship of both companies: “This is obviously disappointing behavior from a partner of almost thirty years, but we will not allow Sony’s behavior to affect our long relationship”, keeping the promise of having quality games independent of the console.
The negative attitudes on the part of Sony have not had an effect on the merger process between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard: on the one hand, the CMA in the United Kingdom has already mentioned that the evidence shows that the purchase will not negatively affect the market, while the Japan Fair Trade Commission likewise approved the process. Something that the director of Playstation does not like at all.
