Microsoft has won its Activision Blizzard acquisiton case with the FTC

Microsoft has won its court case against the United States’ Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It can now continue its planned acquisition of Activision Blizzard King, the developer behind titles like Diablo 4, Call of Duty and Candy Crush, for $68.7bn.

The case provided heaps of gaming news last week on all things Activision Blizzard. It even dragged console rivals Sony into the heat after a court mistake revealed how much the publisher spends on games like The Last of Us Part 2. In reality, the case has actually been viewed as the opening to the deal.
