Phil Spencer assured Jim Ryan that Call of Duty will not be exclusive

The exclusivity of Call of Duty has been one of the most controversial issues that have arisen after the purchase of Blizzard Activision by Microsoft. Although Xbox owners have mentioned that this will not be the case, several government investigations, players and even Sony, have several doubts about it. Now, it has been announced that Phil Spencer assured Jim Ryan, CEO of Sie, that Call of Duty will remain on his consoles for several more years.

In a new statement for The Verge, Phil Spencer, Chief of Xbox, revealed that at the beginning of the year, when the purchase of Activision Blizzard was announced, he wrote a letter to Ryan, where promised him that Call of Duty It will arrive at PlayStation consoles over the next few years , although it did not give an exact date. This was what he commented:

In January, we provide an agreement signed to Sony to guarantee Call of Duty in PlayStation, with parity of functions and content, for at least several years beyond the current Sony contract, an offer that goes far beyond the typical agreements of the industry.

Although the official information remains limited, after reports have indicated that the contract between Activision and Sony says that at least the next two games will arrive in PlayStation, so we would be talking about 2024. However, Spencer’s recent revelation well could indicate that this has extended beyond the previous period indicated.

On related issues, Phil Spencer talks about the progress of purchase. Similarly, the United Kingdom begins a serious research on this acquisition.

Editor’s note:


Although this can see how a positive message is also something strange that this information is announced precisely when various investigations continue to question Xbox statements, and do not doubt that Call of Duty becomes exclusive. Although Spencer’s new statements indicate that this will not happen for now, the possibility of this will happen in the future is not ruled out.
