Microsoft wants to challenge negative decisions of the authorities in the takeover of Activision Blizzard.
The Call of Duty shooter series will be accessible to more and more people under Microsoft.
Ten-year agreements made with Nintendo and GeForce NOW, committing to bring Call of Duty to those platforms, kicked off in February.
Yesterday, Microsoft partnered with Boosteroid, a cloud gaming provider that will stream Xbox PC games and, later, Call of Duty.
And just today, a similar partnership over the same term with Ubitus was announced.
If Sony is going to continue the argument that Microsoft might keep Call of Duty from others after the Activision Blizzard acquisition, then the PlayStation operator won’t have it easy in court, Microsoft’s Brad Smith told The Wall Street Journal.
Smith said, “If the only argument is that Microsoft is withholding Call of Duty from other platforms, and we’ve now signed deals that bring it to a lot more devices and platforms, then that’s a pretty tough argument to make in court.”
Smith also said any decision on the deal will be reviewed in court.
Any negative decision by the authorities in the course of the takeover will be challenged in court.
