Call Of Duty Will Stay On PlayStation For Three Years After Current Deal

In January, Microsoft announced its intention to acquire Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion, making it the most expensive acquisition in gaming history. Regulators need to approve this, but if everything goes according to Microsoft’s plan, by spring or summer 2023 the company will own Activision Blizzard, the publisher and developer of Call of Duty, Overwatch, World of Warcraft and more.

Shortly after the company announced plans to acquire Activision Blizzard, Xbox head Phil Spencer confirmed the company’s intention to “keep Call of Duty on the PlayStation” after the purchase. Earlier this month, he confirmed that commitment by speaking with PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan and promising that Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation even after Activision Blizzard and Sony’s contracts end.

In a new statement to GamesIndustry.biz, Ryan revealed that Call of Duty will remain on the PlayStation for three years after his company’s contracts with Activision Blizzard end. However, Ryan calls it “inadequate” and expresses some frustration at the fact that Spencer has publicly discussed that he and Ryan have spoken about this Call of Duty situation, calling it a “private matter”.

However, it’s good to know that COD will stay on the Playstation for a while.
