Microsoft has confirmed Call of Duty and other Activision Blizzard titles will keep coming to PlayStation beyond existing agreements, news announced in a new company blog post.
The news that Call of Duty and other Activision Blizzard titles will keep coming to PlayStation was announced by company vice-chairman and president Bradford Lee Smith, following the company’s announcement to try buying out Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion.
“First, some commentators have asked whether we will continue to make popular content like Activision’s Call of Duty available on competing platforms like Sony’s PlayStation,” Smith said. “The obvious concern is that Microsoft could make this title available exclusively on the Xbox console, undermining opportunities for Sony PlayStation users.”
Smith added, “To be clear, Microsoft will continue to make Call of Duty and other popular Activision Blizzard titles available on PlayStation through the term of any existing agreement with Activision. And we have committed to Sony that we will also make them available on PlayStation beyond the existing agreement and into the future so that Sony fans can continue to enjoy the games they love. We are also interested in taking similar steps to support Nintendo’s successful platform. We believe this is the right thing for the industry, for gamers and for our business.”
