The deal, announced in 2022, was first blocked by the CMA in April due to concerns about Microsoft’s dominance in the cloud gaming market. However, Activision later agreed to sell cloud streaming rights to Ubisoft to alleviate these concerns. The CMA said the sale to Ubisoft “substantially resolved previous concerns”. Microsoft submitted measures to resolve the remaining issues, which the CMA accepted as provisional.
The deal received approval from the European Union in May, but faced opposition from the US Federal Trade Commission.
