HalfInc. Facebook and Instagram, but also Meta Quest viewers, have sided with Microsoft to buy Activision Blizzard, in front of the Brazilian antitrust authorities, who raised more than a few doubts about the deal. More precisely, he does not see the danger of becoming a monopoly, while making the Call of Duty series exclusive.
Meta talked about an increasingly expanding market that offers many possibilities for anyone who wants to participate in it, including business models and access technologies. In short, the barriers to market access are lower and lower, to the point that they have only seen the entry of many new competitors in recent years: Amazon Luna (2022), Netflix Games (2021), Google Stadia (2019) and Apple Arcade (2019) and Epic Games Store (2018), to name a few of the biggest names.
Then Meta pointed out the names of several publishers capable of producing Triple A titles, such as Bandai Namco, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Embracer Group, Sony, Valve, Ubisoft, and others, which would not be limited to the acquisition, despite the competition. And more.
In short, at the moment, the only company that has stood in the way of the acquisition of Activision Blizzard is Sony, which fears it will suffer a severe blow to its business if PlayStation loses the Call of Duty series, as Jim Ryan himself admitted. .
