The UK regulator CMA shared a statement that they are worried about the Microsoft-Activision merger thinking that Sony and PlayStation will be put in a big disadvantage.

Now in Phase 2 of their investigation, the CMA is looking for “potential concerns” and “theories of harm” if the acquisition pushes through.

A part of the Phase 2 is asking the public their opinion about the merger. The CMA is encouraging the public to share their thoughts and share if they think that there will be a negative impact on the competition.

The CMA will then publish their report after Phase 2, and post whether they are approving the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merger.

If the deal gets finalized, this would mean that games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, World of Warcraft and Diablo 4 will be added to the library of Microsoft games. The deal is also a record-breaking $69 billion.
