Microsoft’s deal to acquire ZeniMax Media looks poised to move forward following approval from the EU. The European Commission was set to approve the deal by March 5, a standard regulatory procedure with major acquisitions. Now, it looks set to pass without any issues or concerns.
The European Commission published its decision around the merger on Monday, stating it “does not raise serious doubts as to its compatibility with the common market.” The EU “shall decide not to oppose it and shall declare that it is compatible with the common market,” leaving the deal set to move ahead over the weeks ahead.
Even when the deal goes through, this may not be the end of Microsoft’s recent purchasing spree, as CEO Satya Nadella previously confirmed that Microsoft will be looking to acquire more gaming companies as time goes on.
