In a high-stakes legal move, Microsoft has served Sony Interactive Entertainment with a subpoena as it prepares to defend itself in an impending antitrust lawsuit with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

For those not in the know, Microsoft is expecting to fight an imminent legal battle with the US government’s Federal Trade Commission on the grounds that its acquisition of Activision Blizzard would “suppress competitors” to an unlawful extent.

A recent court filing, shared by Axios’ Stephen Totilo on Twitter(opens in new tab), has revealed that Microsoft has now subpoenaed Sony in an effort to build a sturdy legal case to defend its interests.

A subpoena is a legal writ ordering an individual or corporation to either attend a court hearing or produce documentation in advance of that hearing.
