Microsoft has stepped up its efforts to persuade regulators to give the green light to its £57 billion takeover of video game maker Activision Blizzard.

The US software giant, owner of the XBox games console, has made new commitments to the European Union as it seeks to allay competition fears.

Regulators around the world – including in the UK – fear rivals could be denied access to Activision games such as Call Of Duty if the deal goes through.

Last month, the Competition and Markets Authority suggested Microsoft might need to sell Call Of Duty for the takeover to materialize. Microsoft President Brad Smith insisted that would be a deciding factor.

But it has pledged to offer rivals such as Nintendo and Playstation-owner Sony access to games including Call Of Duty.

And this week, Microsoft sent its final commitments to Brussels, saying: “We delivered on our promise to bring Call Of Duty to more players on more devices by entering into agreements to bring the game to the Nintendo console and cloud game streaming services.”
