10 gamers sue Microsoft over Activision Blizzard deal
Ten US gamers have come together to file a federal antitrust lawsuit in San Francisco in an attempt to get a court order to stop Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. The lawsuit claims that if the acquisition were to go through, it would give Microsoft an “unparalleled position in the gaming industry,” as it would have too many “must-have games and iconic franchises.” The deal probably won’t stop the acquisition, but it’s one more hurdle Microsoft has to clear before they can get the deal over the line.
