Microsoft to provide Nintendo with 'Call of Duty' for 10 years Xbox top reports deal signed

Microsoft announced that it will continue to provide the popular game "Call of Duty" to Nintendo's platform for 10 years after the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. At the same time, it has indicated a policy to continue providing it to Valve's PC game distribution platform "Steam".

Phil Spencer, who oversees the Xbox business at Microsoft, made the announcement on Twitter. Call of Duty is an FPS (first-person shooter) series that has been available since 2003. "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II", which was released in October 2010, is known as a popular game, with cumulative worldwide sales exceeding $1 billion in 10 days after its release. The developer is different for each work, but the offer is handled by Activision Blizzard.


Fans of the series have been worried that Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard will limit the game consoles and platforms on which they can play. The European Commission, which began an antitrust-related investigation in November, also pointed out that Microsoft may limit access to Call of Duty by competitors. They were concerned about the negative impact on healthy competition.

On the other hand, as of January, Microsoft explained that even after the acquisition, Call of Duty will continue to be playable on Sony's PlayStation and other platforms. Regarding this deal, Phil Spencer emphasized that "Microsoft is committed to providing more games to more people."
