The European Commission is pushing back its April 25 deadline to decide on Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. According to Reuters, the regulator will now make its decision on May 22 in light of Microsoft’s more recent submissions.

While the European Commission hasn’t provided details about its latest decision to the public, it is seeking feedback from rival companies, as well as customers leading up to its new May 22 deadline.

Earlier this month, the European Commission had originally set its provisional deadline to decide the fate of the acquisition on April 25, stating that the magnitude of the $69 billion potential acquisition means that regulatory bodies all over the world shouldn’t be in a rush to make a decision.

More recently, Microsoft has been trying to prove how pro-competition it is by signing deals with several companies to bring Call of Duty to their platforms. A deal with Nintendo was signed, promising to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo platforms with “full feature and content parity“.
