Activision Blizzard has announced that they have reached an agreement with King Digital Entertainment, the company behind the popular Candy Crush saga, to acquire the company for $5.9 billion.
Activision Blizzard says this new acquisition will make the company a leader in the mobile gaming business. The combination of King’s expertise in mobile with Activision’s expertise in publishing can help put these two companies further ahead.
