Microsoft Signs Another 10-Year Partnership to Bring Its Games, Including Activision Blizzard’s, to Ubitus


Microsoft has signed yet another 10-year partnership to bring its games, including Activision-Blizzard titles, to cloud gaming provider Ubitus.

Yesterday, Microsoft announced a similar deal with cloud gaming service Boosteroid. Xbox head Phil Spencer and Ubitus announced the new partnership on Twitter just now. The company has been responsible for various cloud games, including recent Nintendo Switch cloud titles.

“Microsoft and Ubitus, a leading cloud gaming provider, have signed a 10-year partnership to stream Xbox PC Games as well as Activision Blizzard titles after the acquisition closes”, Spencer writes on Twitter. “Our commitment is to give more players, more choice.”

The official Ubitus Twitter account wrote: “We’re honored to establish a 10-year partnership with Microsoft for players to stream Xbox PC Games and Activision Blizzard titles pending the acquisition. This collaboration enhances our library with high-profile game IPs, it also expands our library size to over 1,000 titles, a significant milestone for Ubitus – keeping up our mission of bringing quality games to more platforms and players in more countries with our accessible game streaming solution.”

Last month, Microsoft already announced that it had signed 10-year deals with Nintendo and NVIDIA to bring all of the company’s Xbox games to Nintendo platforms and GeForce Now, including those of Activision-Blizzard, pending approval of the merger between Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard. It’s likely that Microsoft will be signing even more cloud gaming partnerships in order to satisfy regulators.

Those who have followed the planned megadeal between Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard will know that various regulators have expressed their concerns over the merger. The US Federal Trade Commission even went as far as to sue Microsoft as it believes that the deal could “enable Microsoft to suppress competitors to its Xbox gaming consoles and its rapidly growing subscription content and cloud-gaming business.”

The FTC isn’t the only one who has since sued Microsoft – a group of ten gamers have also sued the company. The suit reads as follows: “The proposed acquisition of Activision-Blizzard by Microsoft poses a substantial threat to the Plaintiffs, and to the public at large, in that the proposed acquisition may substantially lessen competition in each of the relevant product markets, and may cause loss to the Plaintiffs, and the public at large, in the form of higher prices, less innovation, less creativity, less consumer choice, decreased output, and other potential anticompetitive effects, which deprive the Plaintiffs, and the public at large, of the salutary benefits of competition.”
