Microsoft agrees to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo for 10 years if it acquires Activision Blizzard
Following the recent disclosure of the 10-year deal that Microsoft offered for call of duty to PlayStation, new information has come out about it. Xbox boss Phil Spencer said via Twitter that the company has committed to 10 years to bring CoD to Nintendo once its purchase of Activision Blizzard is complete.
“Microsoft has entered into a 10-year commitment to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo following the merger of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard King. Microsoft is committed to helping bring more games to more people, no matter how they choose to play.”
After that, Spencer followed up with a second tweet making a similar commitment to PC gamers.
“I’m also pleased to confirm that Microsoft has committed to continuing to offer Call of Duty on Steam concurrently with Xbox after we have closed the merger with Activision Blizzard King.”
The last Call of Duty game released on a Nintendo system was the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts, which released in 2013 and allowed players to use a Wii Remote to aim with motion controls. However, it seems that the sales were not what the company expected that they did not release another game on Nintendo platforms.
Spencer did not say what year he expected the first Microsoft-published Call of Duty to appear on a Nintendo platform. An announcement is expected to be made as soon as the purchase is made after going through the corresponding filters.
