The European Commission has just delayed its verdict on Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard. Originally, the body was going to make its final decision known on April 11, but the date was later changed to the 25th of the same month. Now, the final date will be until May 22.
The reason? According to recent reports, Microsoft presented to the European Commission possible solutions to its concerns. This after making various agreements related to Call of Duty and its arrival on various cloud gaming services and Nintendo consoles.

European Commission will consult the competition to make a decision
As of this writing, it’s unclear which fixes Microsoft came up with, but it’s clear that they relate to Call of Duty. We know this since a company spokesperson referred to all the 10-year agreements they recently agreed with Nintendo, Nvidia, Boosteroid and Ubitus.
“We have delivered on our promise to bring Call of Duty to more players on more devices by entering into agreements to bring the game to the Nintendo console and cloud game streaming services offered by Nvidia, Boosteroid and Ubitus. We are now backing that promise with binding commitments to the European Commission, which will ensure that this deal benefits gamers well into the future,” the Microsoft representative said.
Previously, the European Commission was concerned about what will happen to the popular franchise, but now there is a chance that its point of view is different and does not put more obstacles in the way of the acquisition.
In fact, various sources expect the European Commission to approve the deal after all the agreements signed by Microsoft. The company is also confident that the agency will finally give the green light to the purchase of Activision Blizzard.
We know that the European Commission will analyze Microsoft’s proposals and, at the same time, will consult with various companies in the sector and customers to make a decision. However, now we will have to wait until May 22 to meet her.
