While the gaming world is still shaken by Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, today’s big event is already beginning to show the first effects on the value of several companies in the industry, including Sony.
If you have followed the latest events related to Call of Duty’s publisher, you know that the scandal involving Activision Blizzard has had a negative impact on the value of the shares. However, it seems that the shareholders loved Microsoft’s move and within a few hours of the announcement of the acquisition the value on the company’s stock market has had a remarkable growth. In fact, Activision has grown 25.88% on the last day, indicating that there is confidence in the future together with the Redmond giant. The ad also indirectly involved Sony, whose stock market value has declined by 7.17% in the last day.
Obviously these values should be read with great caution, since it often happens that, in conjunction with large announcements or events, the actions undergo major fluctuations and then stabilize in the next few days.
Speaking of changes, did you know that according to the Wall Street Journal Kotick will no longer be CEO at the end of the acquisition?
