As part of their efforts to close the purchase of Activision Blizzard, Microsoft announces it will bring Xbox games to NVIDIA GeForce New (by using edge). The news is especially relevant as the aforementioned service is a direct competitor to Xbox Cloud Gaming. In fact, they are now industry leaders in terms of infrastructure and technical capability.

Thus, it has been demonstrated that Microsoft wants to benefit the cloud gaming competitor in order to get the green light from regulators to acquire all of Activision Blizzard’s assets.

In the past, NVIDIA and Google have expressed concerns about the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. In the case of the first, they feared that Microsoft would limit the availability call of Duty on Xbox platforms.

However, Microsoft won’t go down the path of exclusivity. In fact, she intends to expand the popular franchise to other platforms. Earlier today, Microsoft closed a deal with Nintendo promising to bring Activision Blizzard games, including call of Duty, to the switch. The contract will also run for the next 10 years.

Basically, the promise of NVIDIA GeForce Now is about the same. The only difference is that the Redmonds indicated that only Xbox games that are available on PC they will arrive at the specified service.

“Microsoft will be migrating its Xbox games from PC to NVIDIA GeForce Now cloud gaming service. We will also add all Activision Blizzard games, including call of Dutyin NVIDIA GeForce Now.

Another point to consider is that if you want to enjoy an Xbox game through NVIDIA GeForce Now, yes or yes, you will have to buy it separately. Microsoft explains that its green-mark agreement only provides for the transfer of rights to transfer (stream) its games.

NVIDIA has changed its mind and now supports Microsoft in the purchase of Activision

In addition to creating a good image for regulators, this deal also forced NVIDIA to change its mind about buying Activision. Those led by Jen-Soon Huang they now believe the acquisition could be beneficial for the entire industry. Believe it or not, they have not hesitated to voice their support for Microsoft to regulators:

“The partnership provides gamers with greater choice and alleviates NVIDIA’s concerns about Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Therefore, NVIDIA offers its full support for regulatory approval of the purchase.”

Does this move guarantee that regulators will approve the purchase of Activision Blizzard? No but yes adds a lot of points in favor of Microsoft. As mentioned earlier, the biggest problem with these organizations is that the company limits the availability of games that have an audience spread across multiple platforms.

However, everything points to the fact that the only thing Microsoft wants now is to increase the audience of certain games by launching them on other platforms. We’ll see if this offer is enough to get regulators to approve the purchase later this year. Let’s not forget that the company must convince the US FTC, the European Commission and the UK CMA.
