Microsoft buys Activision-Blizzard - The Genesis of a Monopoly?

First, it was Bethesda for $7.5 billion, and now, it’s the deeply troubled Activision-Blizzard for $68.7 billion - Microsoft is going on a shopping spree in this latest generation of console war, adding on more games to its Game Pass library and consolidating its influence left, right and center.
