Alongside a number of governing bodies from all around the world not being too keen on Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Google has also seemingly thrown its hat into the proverbial ring of voicing its displeasure.

According to Politico, Google has also been revealed to have some concerns about the acquisition. While the report states that Google’s concerns aren’t to the same extent as that of Sony, the concerns are quite similar in nature, with Google afraid that gaming on its ChromeOS platform will suffer if Microsoft successfully acquires Activision Blizard.

Google’s main argument revolves around the idea of gaming through Game Pass on a system running on Google’s ChromeOS has been purposefully degraded by Microsoft.

In giving credit to Microsoft, however, the company has seemingly been working on improving the Game Pass experience through its xCloud streaming service on not only ChromeOS, but on Linux platforms as well, despite both operating systems being stark competition to Windows.

Google relatively recently decided to leave its biggest attempt at an entry into the gaming market when it announced that it will be shutting down its cloud gaming platform Stadia.
