The Acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft is currently not running quite as smoothly as Microsoft would have liked. The planned deal, for which the Xbox company plans to pay $68.7 billion, has been approved by several antitrust authorities around the world Theme. These include the European Commission and the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) in the USA. The US authorities recently requested some information from Microsoft about the “Next Generation Gaming Ecosystem” – and they delivered.
In the public domain FTC document it is confirmed that the new Xbox generation is already in the works at Microsoft. However, the project name was blacked out. The first details are also very meager. We only learn that it is part of the “forward-looking strategy for the console, subscription and cloud gaming business”. Microsoft is expected to several more years keep a low profile before we can count on official information.
When will the next Xbox be out?
