Microsoft's purchase of a new company in Activision Blizzard isn't expected to push through until next year.
If we believe what a recent report is claiming, the Federal Trade Commission will have a ruling ready by late November.
The inquiry conducted by the US regulatory will progress all the way to the commissions in the coming weeks.
The report adds that FTC staff have raised their concerns about the acquisition, which is said to be worth $68.7 billion.
The regulatory has reportedly been dealing with several competitors who are opposed to the idea of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merging, specifically Sony.
Ultimately, the FTC is just one of the several competition watchdogs scrutinizing the multi-billion deal.
