Microsoft’s $ 7.5bn acquisition of ZeniMax approved by SEC and European Commission

Published

on

Last September, Microsoft announced that it had acquired game publisher ZeniMax Media, which owns Bethesda and several other studios.

According to the source, the European Commission has approved the deal, which is estimated at $ 7.5 billion. In addition, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) also gave the green light to the deal.

The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would not raise competition concerns, given the combined company’s limited market position and strong competition in the video game market. The transaction was reviewed in accordance with the usual merger review process.

Following the completion of the deal, Microsoft will allow ZeniMax to operate semi-autonomously under its current leadership. One thing will change: games developed by studios owned by ZeniMax will be available to play with Xbox Game Pass. In addition, Microsoft will push Bethesda to make its games “first, best, or best” for the Xbox.

Ghost Robotics’ Q-UGV robots are equipped with sophisticated audio and video communication software. They can function autonomously, but they can also be controlled remotely, from a controller and even with audio commands, if necessary.
