The antimonopoly regulator of another country announced that it does not object to the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft. South Africa concluded that the deal would not lead to a significant weakening of competition in the gaming market.

The South African regulator noted that Microsoft has committed to continue releasing Call of Duty and other Activision Blizzard games on competing consoles.

South Africa is the sixth country to approve a deal between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard. Previously, it was supported in Brazil, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Serbia and Japan. Next week — April 26 — the UK regulator is to publish its decision.
