UK’s Competition & Markets Authority Offers Rebuttal to the European Commission’s Decision

"...the CMA stand by its decision."

In response to the European Commision’s (“EC”) approval of the Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard purchase, the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority (“CMA”) has put out a Twitter thread explaining its decision to block the purchase in clearer terms. The CMA argues that all three major commisions from the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe are unanimous in that “this merger would harm competition in cloud gaming” and that this merger would “set the terms and conditions in this (cloud gaming) market for the next ten years.” The CMA believes that the merger would once again give too much power to Microsoft in the cloud market and once again the Authority “stands by its decision” in blocking the deal.

Have a gander at the sourced Twitter thread below.
