Microsoft Gaming Chief: Had A Friendly Call With Sony Management


Microsoft’s gaming chief Phil Spencer confirmed on Thursday that Call of Duty will not leave Sony’s PlayStation console after the company acquires Activision Blizzard.

Gamers are concerned that Call of Duty will leave Sony’s PlayStation console like an Xbox exclusive after Microsoft acquires Activision. After all, Microsoft’s $68.7 billion deal was to bring Activision’s portfolio of games to its streaming subscription service, Xbox Game Pass. However, Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s head of gaming, has reassured players. “Actvision Blizzard’s games are popular across a variety of platforms,” Spencer said. “We plan to continue to support these communities going forward.”

Spencer also said on Twitter that he had a good call with Sony management this week. “I confirm that we intend to abide by all existing agreements following the Activision acquisition to keep Call of Duty on the PlayStation platform. Sony is an important player in our industry and we value our relationship,” he said.
