Microsoft buys Activision-Blizzard - The Genesis of a Monopoly?

First, it was Bethesda for $7.5 billion, and now, it’s the deeply troubled Activision-Blizzard for $68.7 billion - Microsoft is going on a shopping spree in this latest generation of console war, adding on more games to its Game Pass library and consolidating its influence left, right and center. But is this good for the gaming industry, as Microsoft heads closer to a monopoly? And will they be able to fix the ongoing problems that’s currently plaguing Activision-Blizzard? We react to this enormous news.
