Call of Duty Stays on PlayStation After Microsoft Buys Activision

Players globally now have more choice
by Tit Krajnik on July 16, 2023   

Sony and Microsoft have signed a binding agreement to keep Call of Duty On PlayStation following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. The news got confirmed by Phil Spencer on Sunday, July 16, with a Tweet.

As revealed by CEO of Microsoft, Phil Spencer, Microsoft and Sony have signed a binding agreement to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation, ensuring that Microsoft’s deal with Activision Blizzard won’t lead to Call of Duty being exclusive to PC and Xbox.

“We are pleased to announce that Microsoft and PlayStation have signed a binding agreement to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. We look forward to a future where players globally have more choice to play their favorite games.”

The news comes just a day after Microsoft defeated the US Federal Trade Commission, which wanted to correct its defeat in court when the FTS tried to block the acquisition. Even though the administrative process still isn’t finished, it’s highly unlikely for the FTS to succeed in stopping the acquisition, especially following the deal between Microsoft and Sony.

Microsoft Vice President Brad Smith added to Phil Spencer’s statement:

“From Day One of this acquisition, we’ve been committed to addressing the concerns of regulators, platform and game developers, and consumers. Even after we cross the finish line for this deal’s approval, we will remain focused on ensuring that Call of Duty remains available on more platforms and for more consumers than ever before.”
