Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer Wants Call of Duty to Stay Exclusive on Sony PlayStation

SUBANG NEWS – Industry gaming currently being buzzed with from the potential consequences of a big deal Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard, and some of the biggest questions are about the future franchise Call of Duty, which is game most popular on console PlayStation and Xbox.

Although until now it is still not known exactly where fans can play game Call of Duty latest if the acquisition is successful, CEO Microsoft Gaming Phil Spencer suggest this series has a future on the platform Sony.

“I’ve had a good phone call this week with the leaders at Sony. I confirm our intention to honor all existing agreements after the acquisition Activision Blizzard and our desire to maintain Call of Duty from PlayStation. Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship.” Phil Spencer via Twitter.

That statement leaves some wiggle room that Call of Duty can still be an exclusive franchise on the platform Xbox. Microsoft has shown a willingness to turn its acquisition into an exclusive.

The company plans to release an upcoming game Bethesda Softworks Starfield only at Xbox and PC, and Spencer has hinted that it will also happen in The Elder Scrolls VI. That approach makes sense, especially as a way to help improve subscription services Xbox Game Pass.

But apparently that’s not what Spencer wanted to do with Call of Duty. This is not the first time he is willing to keep the franchise’s multiplatform property Microsoft. Minecraft, for example, which remained available on multiple platforms years after Mojang’s acquisition. Microsoft has even released a new Minecraft game called Minecraft Dungeons, on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.

This acquisition agreement is still far from being agreed with a term until the end of the 2023 fiscal year Microsoft, which ended in June 2023. But when Activision finally merged with Microsoft, fans game Call of Duty can breathe easier because it will still be present on the console Sony they.
