Summary

Microsoft gaming CEO Phil Spencer describes his company’s planned acquisition of Activision Blizzard as personally “daunting,” but downplays the influence it would give his team over the gaming industry.

Why it matters: The proposed $69 billion purchase would be the largest consolidation of gaming companies in history.

  • It would add the makers of Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and Candy Crush to a company that makes Halo, Flight Simulator, The Elder Scrolls, Doom and the Xbox itself.
  • If approved by stockholders and government regulators, it’ll be managed by Spencer, an executive with a good-guy rep who is facing tougher scrutiny given the implications of the acquisition.
