The FTC has filed a new court document, one claiming that Microsoft has not produced the information it has requested, including documents covering future ZeniMax exclusivity and details about Microsoft’s 10-year deals offered to Nintendo and Nvidia.
This new court filing is a request from the FTC to the judge overseeing the case, asking them to force Microsoft to produce the requested documents. The complaint states that Microsoft has been selective in what documents it has produced and hasn’t provided any information regarding its “next generation gaming ecosystem,” as well as its plans for future ZeniMax exclusivities. The filing also argues that Microsoft went back on its promise related to ZeniMax titles being exclusive, saying the same could happen with Activision Blizzard titles.
The FTC also says Microsoft needs to produce documents with details on its 10-year deal with Nintendo and Nvidia. It also wants all communications related to Microsoft’s attempts at making these deals with other platforms, like its attempts with Sony and any possible unknown third-party companies. The FTC argues that Microsoft shouldn’t be able to use these deals as part their argument if the company won’t provide its internal documents regarding the deals.
If the judge side withe the FTC’s request, Microsoft will be forced to provide the requested documents.
