Microsoft Acquires Activision Blizzard

Microsoft will purchase the holding company Activision Blizzard. Publisher of games such as Call of Duty: Vanguard and World of Warcraft will end up under the wings of the Redmond giant for a huge amount of money.

There were rumors about this, but no one seemed to believe them. However, it happened - Microsoft announced that it will buy Activision Blizzard in a cash transaction for a substantial amount of 68.7 billion U.S. dollars ($95 per share). After this transaction, the Redmond giant is to become the third largest video game company in the world. Importantly, Bobby Kotick will continue to serve as CEO of Activision Blizzard.

A sociologist by education, a gamer by passion. His adventure with gaming began at the age of four – with the Famicom clone. Currently, he prefers PC and challenging RPGs, but doesn't shy away from consoles or other genres. He has been writing professionally since 2016. He joined Gamepressure five years later – although he has known the website ever since he had access to the Internet – to combine his love of writing and games. He mainly deals with news and editorials. When he's not playing or writing, he's happiest reading, watching TV shows (less often movies) and Premier League matches, listening to heavy music, and walking his dog. He loves Stephen King's works almost unconditionally. He has not abandoned plans to follow in his footsteps. However, he keeps his first "literary achievements" locked away deep in a drawer.
