A new report claims that technology giants Google and Nvidia have expressed some concerns about Microsoft’s proposed buyout of Activision Blizzard. The FTC has sued Microsoft to try to stop the deal, and the case is now headed to court following a pre-trial hearing earlier this month.
Bloomberg reported that “Google and Nvidia provided information that backs a key FTC contention,” which is that Microsoft would claim an unfair advantage specifically in the areas of mobile gaming, subscriptions, and the cloud.
The report goes on to say that Nvidia told the FTC that there is a “need for equal and open access” to games. The company does not, however, directly oppose the deal, the report said.
