Activision Blizzard ya es de Microsoft por cerca de 70 mil millones

Microsoft acaba de dejar caer otro bombazo en la industria de los juegos, solo que esta vez es unas diez veces más grande que cuando compró Bethesda , ya que anunciaron la adquisición de Activision Blizzard por un valor informado de casi $ 70 mil millones . Esto convertirá a Microsoft en la tercera compañía de juegos más grande por ingresos después de Tencent y Sony.

El CEO de Microsoft, Satya Nadella , declaró :

Gaming is the most dynamic and exciting category in entertainment across all platforms today and will play a key role in the development of metaverse platforms. We’re investing deeply in world-class content, community and the cloud to usher in a new era of gaming that puts players and creators first and makes gaming safe, inclusive and accessible to all.

Microsoft también anunció su objetivo de ofrecer “la mayor cantidad posible de sus juegos” en Game Pass para Xbox y PC. Hoy, la compañía reveló haber superado los 25 millones de suscriptores.

Tras el cierre del acuerdo, Activision Blizzard informará directamente a Phil Spencer, director de Microsoft Gaming. Esto sugiere que el CEO de Activision Blizzard, Bobby Kotick, quien recientemente se vio envuelto en un mar de controversias junto con el resto de la compañía , podría retirarse una vez que se cierre el trato, aunque eso aún no está claro.

Esto es lo que dijo el propio Spencer en la publicación de blog del anuncio compartida en Xbox Wire .

The fantastic franchises across Activision Blizzard will also accelerate our plans for Cloud Gaming, allowing more people in more places around the world to participate in the Xbox community using phones, tablets, laptops and other devices you already own. Activision Blizzard games are enjoyed on a variety of platforms and we plan to continue to support those communities moving forward.

As a company, Microsoft is committed to our journey for inclusion in every aspect of gaming, among both employees and players. We deeply value individual studio cultures. We also believe that creative success and autonomy go hand-in-hand with treating every person with dignity and respect. We hold all teams, and all leaders, to this commitment. We’re looking forward to extending our culture of proactive inclusion to the great teams across Activision Blizzard.

Around the world, there is no more exciting venue for fun and connection than video games. And there has never been a better time to play than right now. As we extend the joy and community of gaming to everyone, we look forward to welcoming all of our friends at Activision Blizzard to Microsoft Gaming.

En una declaración compartida con The Verge , Spencer destacó el compromiso de Microsoft para mejorar la cultura del lugar de trabajo en Activision Blizzard.
