Microsoft (MSFT) is doubling down on boosting its video-game content portfolio…
In a January 18 blog post, the technology giant announced it would purchase major video-game publisher Activision-Blizzard (ATVI) for $68.7 billion.
Through the deal, Microsoft will gain control of some of the most popular intellectual properties in the industry. This includes Call of Duty, Candy Crush, Diablo Overwatch, Starcraft, and World of Warcraft.
It will also accelerate Microsoft’s growth in the mobile, PC, and console markets as the company further builds out its cloud video-game service GamePass.
Once the agreement is finalized, it will make Microsoft the third-largest video game company by revenue, putting it behind Tencent (TCEHY) and Sony (SONY).
But while this will benefit Microsoft’s efforts to take on its biggest competitors and grow its portfolio of exclusive titles, it could also provide a boost to Activision-Blizzard’s largest competitor… Electronic Arts (EA).
That’s because, with Microsoft’s purchase, Electronic Arts is now one of the largest remaining video-game pure plays that investors can buy shares of. As a result, it also makes it one of the strongest stocks for investors to gain better exposure to the ever-growing sector.
And even if it doesn’t remain that way forever, analysts have speculated that it could also become a target for acquisition like Activision-Blizzard – as it has a strong portfolio of video-game titles and a large number of monthly active users.
This could suggest that regardless of what happens, EA will likely continue to grow its share value due to its popular library of games, games-as-a-service business model, and its push into the cloud gaming market.
