In the event of a successful takeover of the publishing house Activision Blizzard corporation Microsoft plans to continue releasing shooters from the series Call of Duty on consoles PlayStation as long as these consoles remain on the market. Famous franchise for sure will not be exclusive to family systems Xbox and PCemphasized Phil Spencer.
“We are not going to separate Call of Duty and PlayStation, there is no such task. Our goal is completely opposite. As long as the PlayStation exists, as long as games can be released on these consoles, Call of Duty will be released on the PlayStation. The situation is similar to Minecraft, which we also own.
In the case of Minecraft, we did not limit the availability of the project on any platforms, but rather expanded their coverage. And it was the right decision, including for the fans of the game themselves. Thinking about the future of Call of Duty, our team wants to repeat this development model,” said Phil Spencer.
