“ First of all, some commentators have asked if we continue to make popular content available such as Activision Call of Duty on competing platforms such as Sony’s PlayStation. The obvious concern is that Microsoft can make this title available exclusively on the Xbox console, undermining the opportunities for Sony Playstation users.
To be clear, Microsoft will continue to make Call of Duty and other popular Activision Blizzard titles available on PlayStation for the duration of any existing agreement with Activision.
And we are committed to Sony to make them available also on PlayStation beyond the existing agreement and in the future, so that Sony fans can continue to have fun with the games they love ”.
