According to a tweet from the Xbox boss, Phil Spencer Microsoft has officially entered into a 10-year agreement with Nintendo to make Call of Duty available on Nintendo consoles if the Activision Blizzard acquisition closes.
Moreover, Microsoft will continue to offer Call of Duty titles on Steam as well.
Microsoft has entered into a 10-year commitment to bring Call of Duty to @Nintendo following the merger of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard King. Microsoft is committed to helping bring more games to more people – however they choose to play. @ATVI_AB— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) December 7, 2022
The last time a mainline Call of Duty title was on a Nintendo Console was 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, so if the deal goes on Nintendo owners won’t be left behind from playing the best-selling game ever.
However, FTC is preparing a potential legal challenge to block Microsoft’s Activision Blizzard deal from happening. Microsoft is also facing regulatory scrutiny from the EU and the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).
So, let’s hope for the best
Just to know Microsoft offered the same deal to Sony as well.
