Xbox will continue to release Call of Duty on PlayStation, Phil Spencer confirms it once again

Microsoft’s planned acquisition of Activision Blizzard has met with some resistance, while various regulatory groups around the world have scrutinized it for anti-competitive elements, with Sony being one of the strongest voices in the room. The home of PlayStation has come under fire for being potentially damaging to its business, but Microsoft’s gaming chief Phil Spencer has once again dismissed the idea of ​​Call of Duty becoming an Xbox console exclusive.

“We’re not taking Call of Duty from PlayStation,” Spencer said on the Same Brain videocast (that section is highlighted in a tweet from Tom Warren of The Verge down). “Our intention is not to do that and as long as there is a PlayStation to ship to, our intention is that we continue to ship Call of Duty on PlayStation. Similar to what we’ve done with Minecraft, we’ve expanded the places where people can play Minecraft. [and] We have not reduced the places.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II just celebrated its biggest launch to date on PlayStation. Sony revealed that Modern Warfare II has become the “biggest PlayStation Store launch” of all time for the Call of Duty series, including pre-orders and day one sales. On Xbox and Steam, the game sits at the top of the best-seller lists, keeping alive the tradition of Call of Duty being a blockbuster cross-platform release.

However, Sony has talked a lot about the possible ownership of the franchise by Microsoft, since the PlayStation company still has several agreements with Activision to offer its users exclusive content as an incentive to use their platform to play. Spencer has repeatedly promised that Call of Duty will be available on PlayStation for years beyond the current deal set out by Activision as Microsoft focuses on its mobile push. Sony has disputed this, stating that the new deal only guarantees an additional three years for the series to be on PlayStation.
