The FTC is now trying to delay the Activision deal in a new way as Microsoft pushes to close it

Barely a day after submitting its appeal in the Microsoft Activision court case, the US Federal Trade Commission is now pushing for a new and temporary injunction. This injunction aims to prevent the deal from being finalized until a ruling is made on the appeal.

On July 13, the FTC filed a fresh motion for an injunction pending appeal. The commission urges the court to halt the closure of the Activision deal by Microsoft until it completes its review of the merger. It’s important to note that this review is separate from the ongoing court case. Alternatively, the FTC requests an injunction until the court evaluates its pending appeal.
