Microsoft and CMA get more time to negotiate.

The UK’s Competition Appeal Tribunal has agreed, with some requirements that need to be satisfied on Thursday, to pause Microsoft’s appeal of the CMA decision to block the Activision Blizzard merger. Both the CMA and Microsoft requested this last week, to allow them to negotiate over a cloud gaming deal. The CMA has also extended the date for its final order from July 18th to August 29th, so it’s likely that Microsoft’s deal will tick past the July 18th deadline and could see a temporary extension.
