Xbox Microsoft Activision Acquisition Expected to Face Deeper Investigations in UK, EU

It will be interesting to see whether the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the United States will approve the deal.

Earlier this month, the UK's Competition and Markets Authority recommended it begin a second-phase investigation into impact of the deal, concerned that Microsoft's ownership of Activision Blizzard would "result in a substantial lessening of competition within a market or markets in the United Kingdom."

Microsoft was given five business days to supply evidence that would allay these concerns, but the Financial Times reports it has opted not to do so.

Sources familiar with the situation told the FT that Microsoft believed there were no obvious commitments it could make that the CMA would be likely to accept.

As such, an in-depth investigation is expected to start this week.
