The CMA report continues to leave us with very relevant data on what would happen after the acquisition

”It’s impossible” These are the three basic words that perfectly sum up what is happening with the takeover of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft. The acquisition was blocked a few days ago by the CMA (the British commission responsible for ensuring the health of the international market) and could still It would be a long time before Microsoft even had a chance to appeal and try again.

But beyond all that, the truth is that the report published by the CMA leaves us with a lot of relevant data that allows us to better understand what would happen if the purchase of Activision Blizzard were to take place. And, precisely, the last one that has come to light has to do with with when Call of Duty would be released on Xbox Game Pass in said hypothetical case. I leave you with all the information below so you can have it as close as possible.

Call of Duty would take a long time to reach Xbox Game Pass

  • The information contained in the CMA report was collected by colleagues from CharlieIntel
  • According to the data, Call of Duty wouldn’t hit Xbox Game Pass until 2025
  • From there we understand that Activision would have contracts with other companies until this same year
  • That’s to say, 2024 and 2025 Call of Dutys would continue to release on PlayStation
  • What remains uncertain is whether Xbox’s deal with PlayStation around to offer Call of Duty for 10 more years to the second would have counted from this same date or not
  • In this other article I already told you why PlayStation didn’t accept the deal in the end

Since the buying process might not start for a few years unless Microsoft finds a way to win the UK CMA, we probably won’t see Call of Duty on Xbox Game Pass until we have several more years. What do you think of all this? I read you in the comments.
