While tensions have been building between Sony and Microsoft over the future of CoD over the past few months, Xbox seems to be calming the situation with Sony’s offer to keep the acclaimed franchise alive for a while longer.

In early 2022, Microsoft shocked the video game industry by announcing its intention to buy Activision-Blizzard, the publisher of major franchises such as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft.

However, such an agreement with Microsoft would seriously jeopardize the future of CoD on the PlayStation.

However, in a statement to The Verge, Xbox chief executive Phil Spencer revealed that he signed a deal with Sony in January to keep Call of Duty on the PlayStation “for a few more years.”

Shortly thereafter, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan countered, stating that Phil Spencer only guaranteed that Call of Duty would continue on the PlayStation for three years after the current deal between CoD and Sony ended.

However, Microsoft has reportedly recently released a new proposal to extend this deadline.

ActivisionSony fears that Xbox will offer Call of Duty as part of Game Pass.

Microsoft would offer a 10-year contract for Call of Duty for PlayStation

A new report from The New York Times says that Microsoft has finally offered another ten years of CoD on the PlayStation.

A few months ago, Jim Ryan previously said of the three-year offer that was made: “After nearly 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their offer was inadequate on many levels and did not take into account the impact on our players. We want PlayStation players to continue to play the highest quality Call of Duty, and Microsoft’s proposal destroys that principle.”

So this new offer from Microsoft is more in line with what Jim Ryan said, and so the agreement between Microsoft and Sony could very well be closer.
