Regulators Seek To Block Microsoft’s Activision Takeover

U.S. Regulators have asked a judge to block Microsoft from completing its $69 billion Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard purchase.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission said the deal, which would be the largest in the video game industry’s history, could substantially lessen competition in the sector.

The move comes after the UK blocked the deal over concerns it would hurt competition, but the EU approved it.

A trial in the U.S. is set for August.
