A few weeks ago the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft was announced and now the transaction continues to advance, the ceo of the firm, Bobby Kotick, said that in a special meeting of shareholders, more than 98 percent of the shares were in favor of the sale.
«Today’s overwhelming vote of support from our shareholders confirms our shared belief that, combined with Microsoft, we will be even better positioned to create great value for our players, including greater opportunities for our employees, and continue our focus on becoming an inspiring example of a welcoming, respectful and inclusive workplace.»
The terms of purchase by the company that owns Xbox consider an offer of 68,700 million dollars to acquire all the products and the firm itself developer of several games that have been top in sales worldwide.
A few days ago certain tensions were reported with the shareholders who had already been slow to issue a resolution on the sale and without the approval it would not be binding. However, when it became known that only 2 percent were against the operation, now the sale will move to the next phase.
For the transaction to be completed, it only remains for the different regulatory institutions of the United States, Great Britain, China, among others, to pronounce themselves in favor of the sale in case everything is in order and once approved, the sale to Xbox would be completed.
However, this is not a minor issue, it must be remembered that a few months ago, Nvidia sought to buy the firm ARM, however, it was not completed due to antitrust issues.
Among the games that are owned by Activision Blizzard are Call of Duty, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Candy Crush, among dozens of other titles that have reached different consoles.
