PlayStation wants more than three years of Call of Duty on PS5 – Okibata

The acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft had an impact on the video game industry. Although the company has not yet been fully bought (the investigation is ongoing), the officially concluded deal will affect many publishers, one of which is PlayStation.

Jim Ryan believes that Microsoft’s offer to leave Call of Duty on the PlayStation for another three years is not enough. He said: “We want to ensure that PlayStation players continue to enjoy the highest quality Call of Duty, and Microsoft’s proposal undermines that principle. »

Sony has previously made it clear that the company is not a big fan of Microsoft’s acquisition of Call of Duty, mainly because “Call of Duty is so popular that it influences users’ choice of console, and its network of loyal users is so ingrained that even if a competitor had a budget to develop a similar product, he couldn’t compete with it. »

Honestly, Jim Ryan is right. The Call of Duty fandom is huge and it’s hard to deny that their presence in the industry is valuable to any console. Stealing PlayStation users from Call of Duty is a cheap move, and while it can get many gamers to move to the Xbox ecosystem, it also gets people to spend a lot of extra money, especially if they’re big fans of the series.

Yes, Jim Ryan’s interests are definitely financial. He wants to support PlayStation users who are big fans of Call of Duty for the sake of the console itself. But gamers deserve this series to be platform independent, at least for a while. People who have invested in PS5 with the intent to buy every new Call of Duty and follow the series will be shocked to see that it has been suddenly ripped off.

It may not seem like a big deal, but these kinds of contrived exclusivity buyouts are almost always bad. Once the deal is done, Xbox will still own Call of Duty, so it might be a good idea to give PlayStation gamers a little more time on the series before making it happen.
