With Microsoft’s announcement that they will be buying out Activision Blizzard, fans of the Call Of Duty franchise wondered what this will mean for the upcoming Activision Blizzard games and if they will continue to be available for non-Microsoft platforms in the future.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer previously said that they will be keeping Call of Duty on the PlayStation, but we don’t know if this is a temporary thing or if after a while Microsoft will make it an exclusive. Fans of Call of Duty can rest assured that this won’t be the case, at least for the future.
This news is according to a tweet by Jason Schreier where he said that at least three future Call of Duty titles will still be released on the PlayStation even after Microsoft closes their purchase of Activision Blizzard. This will of course include this year’s Call of Duty, 2023’s release, and Warzone 2 in 2023.
Schreier does note that after that, the future of the franchise’s availability on the PlayStation is not so clear. This does not mean that we won’t see any more COD games on the PlayStation after that, it’s just that it might be more difficult to tell at the moment. It is on Microsoft successfully closed their acquisition of Activision Blizzard which is anticipated to conclude in 2023.
