Microsoft commits to bringing Call of Duty games to Nintendo consoles for 10 years
Likewise, they have committed to launch the games simultaneously on Steam at the same time as Xbox consoles.
Despite all the problems that have arisen around the purchase of Activision Blizzard, Microsoft remains committed to making it a reality. As such, they want to ensure that games from these developers reach as many platforms as possible. Call of Duty is one of the most important series. For that reason, they have committed themselves in a great way to make this series reach all platforms.
Recently, Phil Spencer pledged to bring Call of Duty games to PlayStation for a long period of time. But, surprisingly, today they have committed to bringing the Call of Duty series to Nintendo consoles for the next ten years. Will we finally get the long-awaited Black Ops 2 remake on the Switch?
Call of Duty will make its triumphant return to Nintendo
Phil Spencer and Xbox continue to work day by day so that the purchase of Activision Blizzard does not represent a problem for the industry. As such, they are committed to bringing different series of games to all platforms for years to come.
A few days ago Phil Spencer, in response to Sony’s complaints about the purchase, assured us that games would continue to arrive on PlayStation consoles. Among the most prominent franchises, we can find Call of Duty, which in previous years had exclusively PlayStation content and later came to other consoles.
In addition to this great news, Phil Spencer continues to work to unite all players and platforms. Therefore, today, he surprisingly announced through Twitter that they will engage with Nintendo to bring the Call of Duty franchise. It’s a saga that was completely missing from Nintendo consoles since 2013. Therefore, ten years later, the Call of Duty saga will make a triumphant return to Nintendo consoles.
Despite this announcement, there has been no comment on whether the recently released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be released on the Switch. What is certain is that this project will start for the next release of the series. It is great news both for fans of Nintendo consoles and for the industry in general.
Call of Duty returns to Steam
In addition to Nintendo’s big announcement, Spencer also dropped another one that will make PC and Steam Deck users happy. Call of Duty will return to Steam for the next release of the franchise simultaneously with the launch of the Xbox ecosystem, contingent on the merger going through.
Since the 2017 Call of Duty: WWII game, Valve’s platform has not received a game of this popular saga. This situation was due to the fact that the games were launched exclusively through Activision Blizzard’s Battle.net portal. The portal is known for having many problems and causing performance drops.
Both this move, as well as Nintendo’s, are very wise on Xbox’s part. If they continue to make these kinds of decisions and follow through on improving all of Activision Blizzard’s game series, Xbox will likely become the largest video game company in the industry.
