Microsoft has a desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation, says Phil Spencer

News about Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which was first announced on Tuesday, has huge implications for the games industry. However, full details of what this means for some of the most popular online titles have yet to be released. Activision Blizzard has several major IPs under its umbrella, including World of Warcraft and Call of Duty.

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, took to Twitter to say that Microsoft will not pull Call of Duty out of PlayStation with this new acquisition. “There have been good calls this week with leaders at Sony. I confirm our intention to honor all existing agreements with the acquisition of Activision Blizzard and our desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation,” Spencer wrote on Thursday. “Sony is an important part of our industry and we value our relationship.”

While this is promising news for PlayStation users who also enjoy Call of Duty, it’s not a comprehensive statement. It is possible that the situation may change in the future; for example, the new mainline Call of Duty campaign and title could be specific to Microsoft platforms, while the free-to-play Warzone remains cross-platform. The word “desire” also indicates that this is not entirely set in stone; There can be complicated negotiations on this topic.

While this Tweet suggests there’s nothing to worry about at any time, it seems there’s a lingering “but” that hasn’t been resolved. In the meantime, here’s the full recap any major franchise that Microsoft currently controls following the proposed Activision Blizzard deal.
