Microsoft agrees to aquire Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion

The world-renowned franchises and talented people at Activision Blizzard will be joining Team Xbox! That's the shock announcement made this week via Twitter by Microsoft CEO Gaming Phil Spencer.

Until this transaction closes, Activision Blizzard and Microsoft Gaming will continue to operate independently. Once the deal is complete, the Activision Blizzard business will report to me as CEO, Microsoft Gaming.

Upon close, we will offer as many Activision Blizzard games as we can within Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, both new titles and games from Activision Blizzard’s incredible catalog. We also announced today that Game Pass now has more than 25 million subscribers. As always, we look forward to continuing to add more value and more great games to Game Pass.

Learn what this means for the many iconic games and player communities over on the official Activision Blizzard website.
