EA merger with Take Two is A-OK with authorities

According to this article on NEWS.COM.AU, US antitrust authorities would approve a merger between EA and Take Two.

It would be interesting to see what happens as a result of this merger. EA is notorious amongst gamers for having the reputation of dumbing down games, pumping out sequels and stamping out innovation in the gaming industry. However, in the past few years I believe EA acknowledges that this image is hurting them and they've loosened the leash on some of their more recent acquisitions. One of their now older acquisitions, Maxis, is an example of a development house that they've pretty much left alone to do their own thing. However will they do the same with prominent Take Two developers like Rockstar and Firaxis (my personal favourite)?
