Players Sue Microsoft to Prevent Activision Blizzard Purchase


Some gamers are unhappy with Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, citing concerns about the future of franchises and potential exclusivity. In response, a group of players has filed an antitrust lawsuit, arguing that the deal could harm competition or create a monopoly.

The lawsuit cites the Clayton Act, which prohibits acquisitions that reduce competition, and players fear potential price increases, reduced innovation, and reduced consumer choice. They also referenced Microsoft’s previous acquisitions of Mojang (Minecraft) and Rare as examples of their concern.
