In related news, Microsoft on January 18th announced plans to acquire Activision Blizzard in a deal valued at $68.7 billion USD (about $85.96 billion CAD). As part of that acquisition, Microsoft aims to “offer as many Activision Blizzard games as [it] can within Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, both new titles and games from Activision Blizzard’s incredible catalogue.”
