Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation

Phil Spencer has tried to clarify once and for all that Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation even after the eventual finalization of the acquisition of Activision Blizzard: the CEO of Microsoft Gaming expressed himself explicitly on the matter and guaranteed that he had no seconds ends.

In the light of the extraordinary results of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, with one billion dollars collected in ten days, Spencer was once again asked about the possibility that the series could somehow become an Xbox exclusive, but he denied that scenario and reiterated what he said so far, trying to be even more precise.

"It's not like I'm going to pull the rug out from under the PlayStation 7 at some point and say 'hahaha, don't you signed a contract long enough'. There is no contract that stipulates something forever, "explained the head of Xbox.

"The idea that we can write up a contract with the words 'forever' in it I think is a bit silly, but I would have absolutely no problem signing a more lasting commitment with which Sony will feel comfortable and that regulators feel comfortable with."

Spencer then strung together a series of very explicit statements: "Call of Duty will remain available natively on PlayStation, it will not be linked to the obligation to subscribe to the Game Pass, it will not be streamed. If they want a streamed version Call of Duty, however, we can still do it, just as it happens on our consoles."

"I'm not hiding anything. Let's talk about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which is doing very well on both PlayStation and Xbox, but also of the next episode, of the next one, of the one after. Available natively on the platform, without having to subscribe to Game Pass and without Sony having to accept the Game Pass on their consoles to make it happen."

" There are no gimmicks. We want to continue bringing Call of Duty to PlayStation without any kind of gimmick. I understand that some people are concerned and that's why I'm trying to be as clear as possible."

The umpteenth ones will suffice Phil Spencer's reassurances to get the evaluation process of the acquisition of Activision Blizzars back on track in Europe? As we know, the European Commission did not give the go-ahead and moved on to phase 2, ordering new and more in-depth investigations.

However, the reasons expressed by the Commission and episodes such as Ricardo Cardoso's unfortunate tweet restore the feeling of a clear prejudice against Microsoft, which we hope will be denied by the facts.
