Activision is reportedly planning to release the next three titles in the Call of Duty series on both Sony and Microsoft consoles.
According to Bloomberg, this year’s Call of Duty will likely be a part of the Modern Warfare series developed by Infinity Ward and will launch on the PlayStation console. The other two Call of Duty games are from Treyarch’s project currently in development, a “planned new iteration” of free-to-play battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone. Both the games are expected to launch in 2023.
After Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard, CoD fans were wondering whether the popular FPS title would become an Xbox exclusive, the latest report clears the air. Bloomberg, citing four people familiar with Microsoft’s multi-billion-dollar acquisition deal, reported that Activision had plans to release the next three Call of Duty games on PlayStation before the deal. Notably, Microsoft CEO Phil Spender announced the company’s intention to honor existing Call of Duty agreements.
“I reaffirmed our desire to honor all existing agreements on the acquisition of Activision Blizzard and to have Call of Duty on PlayStation. Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship,” Spencer said last week. Said.
It is unclear whether future entries in the franchise will release on PlayStation. However, some outlets speculate that the titles may be exclusive to Microsoft’s in-house console and PC ecosystem. Activision has yet to become an official part of Microsoft’s studio, and the latter has yet to put its plans on paper. But if one has to check past records, Microsoft may implement a different approach with the video game publisher as well. The largest video gaming acquisition in history is expected to close within the next year and a half.
