Meta defended Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard in Brazil

Meta, the company of Facebook and Instagram, but also of Meta Quest viewers, has sided with Microsoft for the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, in front of the Brazilian antitrust authorities, which have raised more than a few doubts about the deal. More precisely, it does not see the risk of becoming a monopoly, while making the Call of Duty series exclusive.

Meta spoke of a market that is increasingly expanding and that offers numerous possibilities to anyone who wants to take part, including business models and access technologies. In short, the barriers to access the market are lower and lower, so much so that only in recent years have they seen the entry into the same of many new competitors: Amazon Luna (2022), Netflix Games (2021), Google Stadia (2019), Apple Arcade (2019) and Epic Games Store (2018), just to name a few of the biggest names.

Meta then indicated the names of many publishers capable of producing triple A titles, such as Bandai Namco, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Embracer Group, Sony, Valve, Ubisoft and others, which will not be limited by the acquisition , despite the competition getting more and more heated.

In short, for now the only company to have got in the way of the acquisition of Activision Blizzard has been Sony, which fears it will suffer a severe blow to its business if PlayStation loses the Call of Duty series, such as admitted by Jim Ryan himself.
