Microsoft is preparing to announce the completion of the purchase of Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion on October 13. This is reported by The Verge source.

It is possible that the date will change. As The Verge notes, everything depends on the decision of the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

Recall that initially the British regulator banned the transaction, but at the end of September it previously revised its position. He did this after Microsoft agreed to transfer the rights to distribute Activision Blizzard games in cloud services to Ubisoft.

Today is the last day when the CMA holds consultations and collects opinions on the deal. It is expected that the final decision will be announced next week.
