As long as PlayStation exists .. Xbox chief says Call of Duty will be released there

News Plus

Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer today said, “We won’t take Call of Duty from PlayStation.” In an interview with YouTubers Justine and Jenna Ezarik on a new podcast, Spencer made clearest comments yet on what would happen to the game following an Activision acquisition.

Spencer says on their podcast:

As long as PlayStation is available, we will continue to release the game on PlayStation. We expanded the places where people could play Minecraft since we owned it. My opinion is that we didn’t cut places, and I want to do the same as we think about where Call of Duty can go.”

While Sony and Microsoft have oscillated about the game’s future, Spencer has compared Call of Duty to Minecraft twice recently. Spencer also hinted at plans to bring the shooter to the Nintendo Switch and treat the franchise like Minecraft.

He said:

PlayStation will have Call of Duty. I’d like to see the game on Switch and playable on many screens.”

The game’s fans have been debating whether Microsoft will make it an Xbox exclusive since news of Microsoft’s $68.7 billion acquisition of Activision broke earlier this year. Microsoft’s Spencer announced publicly that the company wanted Call of Duty to stay on PlayStation, but Sony’s written commitment wasn’t enough to reassure competitors.

Following Sony’s current marketing deal with Activision, Spencer made a written commitment to PlayStation chief Jim Ryan to keep the game on his platform for “several more years.”.

Microsoft claims that keeping the game on PlayStation is a “commercial necessity” for Xbox’s business and transactional economics. Microsoft says that pulling it from PlayStation would jeopardize revenue and that it is dependent on Activision Blizzard’s game distribution revenue
