The FTC reveals Activision was looking at putting its games on Xbox Game Pass in 2020, but “we made a decision not to include our games on Game Pass as a subscription service.”
The FTC is catching Kotick out with his previous testimony as he’s being evasive here at answering questions he’s previously discussed in his investigational hearing.
Judge Corley cuts in:
Judge Corley: Why did you agree to the merger if you don’t think [game subscriptions] make commercial sense?
Kotick: I don’t agree with the idea of a multi game subscription service as a business proposition going forwards, but we [Activision and Microsoft] can agree to disagree.
