Microsoft Says Call Of Duty Will Stay On PlayStation “Beyond Existing Agreement”
Microsoft has says the Call of Duty games, plus a number of other popular Activision Blizzard titles will remain available on PlayStation after the A$96 billion buyout.
“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,” Microsoft says.
“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.”
This isn’t mere altruism, mind. This acquisition has to jump a number of anti-competition hurdles before it can happen, so Microsoft loudly proclaiming it wouldn’t keep Activision Blizzard’s titles off its largest gaming console competitor will certainly help their narrative.
Activision Blizzard has other big hitters, such as Diablo and Overwatch, so assumedly these will also remain on PlayStation – at least for a while.
