Microsoft announced a restructuring of its proposed Activision Blizzard acquisition earlier today that involves transferring cloud gaming rights for current and new activision Blizzard games to ubisoft. It's a big change in Microsoft's $68.7 billion deal that's designed to appease UK regulators that blocked the acquisition earlier this year, but it might also trigger a refresh review from the EU.
“The Commission is carefully assessing whether the developments in the UK require another notification to the Commission,” says European Commission spokesperson Arianna Podesta in a statement to The Verge.
