Xbox is Acquiring Activision Blizzard, Will Own Call of Duty, Warcraft, and More

In a shock announcement, Microsoft has announced that it is officially acquiring Activision Blizzard, with the deal reported to be for a staggering $68.7 billion. This industry-shaking acquisition will give Microsoft, and therefore the Xbox brand, ownership over some of the industry’s biggest money-making titles, including the Call of Duty franchise. Needless to say, this will be an absolutely massive acquisition if it’s approved, eclipsing Microsoft’s Bethesda acquisition from last year and standing as the largest gaming acquisition in history to date.
