The chat is with Phil Spencer, head of Xbox repeated Microsoft’s commitment to releasing Call of Duty on PlayStation platforms is reinforced every time with its statements. As the trillion-dollar tech juggernaut Activision fights to make up for its nearly $70 billion acquisition of Blizzard, the suit says Call of Duty will continue to be released on Sony’s systems “until PlayStation out there to ship.” is”. In other words, if there is a PlayStation in the shops, Call of Duty will be available on it.

Regulators are still undecided about whether to greenlight Microsoft’s proposed buyout, a big sticking point with Call of Duty. Sony has argued that its business will be irreparably damaged if the acquisition goes through, while Xbox is keen to state that it will continue to release on PlayStation. Sony bigwig Jim Ryan recently went public about an “unfair” offer his company received from Microsoft to put the first-person shooter on the PlayStation “after three years of an existing agreement” with his company Activision Blizzard. had promised

Spencer’s latest comments seem to go further than that, though: “That’s not our intention [remove Call of Duty] And as long as there’s a PlayStation to ship to, our intention is that we’ll continue to ship Call of Duty on PlayStation – just like we’ve done with Minecraft ever since we’ve had it.

It’s a statement that we can’t help but think is intended to sway regulators’ decisions.
