This has been an issue for Microsoft since they announced their purchase of Activision/Blizzard. Many people don’t want it to happen, especially Sony because Call of Duty for example is one of the biggest franchises around and sells like hot cakes for the PS brand. Now that MS may own them, it hurts them, even though Xbox promised they won’t make the series exclusive to Xbox.
But, this sale might not even go through with all this news. It does make me wonder what will come of this sale.
