The company's gaming business is the center of attention following Activision Blizzard acquisition plans

In fiscal Q2 2022, Microsoft topped earnings per share and revenue expectations. The tech behemoth revealed an adjusted EPS of $2.48 while the market looked for $2.31. At the same time, revenue came in at $51.73 billion, higher than the $50.88 billion previously touted. Revenue increased 20% compared to the previous year's numbers, while compared to the fiscal Q1 2022, it grew 22%.

Microsoft's Intelligent Cloud segment, including the Azure public cloud, GitHub, and Windows Server, generated $18.33 billion in revenue, marking a 25.5% growth compared to the previous figures.

The company's game segment – which now accounts for almost 11% of the overall revenue – caught investors' eyes this month after Microsoft revealed plans to purchase Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion, the largest deal in Microsoft's 46-year history.

For fiscal Q3 2022, Microsoft expects the revenue to reach a high of $49.3 billion, topping the $48.23 billion market consensus.

At the moment of writing, Microsoft's stock price was trading 3.89% higher.
