The possible loss of Call of Duty worries many fans.
The news of the month and possibly of the year within the video game industry has been the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft, this being something that has revolutionized the market not only because of the enormous amount of money that this transaction has involved, but also because now Microsoft owns great sagas such as Spyro, Crash and Call of Duty, among others.
In this way, one of the most notable in this purchase has not been any of the companies that have been part of this transaction, but rather the one that is Microsoft’s direct competition: Sony and its PlayStation, since, after all, the Japanese company has always relied on Activision releases, especially in Call of Duty, in order to increase their sales figures. However, with this purchase it has been questioned whether the saga will continue to appear on these consoles. And before this perspective, Sony has spoken about it.
Sony still hopes to continue seeing Activision titles on PlayStation
Given this, Sony has officially responded to the agreement and has stated that hopes to keep getting Activision Blizzard games on PlayStation, this being a statement offered to The Wall Street Journal. In fact, they say they expect Microsoft abide by pre-purchase contractual agreements as well as that Activision games remain as multiplatform titles.
Given this, it must be said that Activision itself reported that we would at least see a couple more Call of Duty on PlayStation as a result of these agreements. However, we will have to see what happens in the future, since all titles that are released after the agreements end will depend on Microsoft, since the only thing we can be 100% sure of is that all the games they make from now on will be available on launch day on Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass.
It is worth mentioning that Phil Spencer has indicated that they will respect these agreements and the video game communities, so, in principle, everything would indicate that they will continue to be multiplatform titles. However, it must be said that, despite the fact that we have the history of Deathloop after the purchase of Bethesda, the truth is that games like Starfield and Redfall They will only be available on Microsoft consoles and their services, so time will tell.
