“When everyone plays, we all win”: found the agreement between Sony and Xbox, Call of Duty remains on the consoles of the PlayStation family
The aphorism of Phil Spencer it seemed to us the best way to open the week with the news, confirmed by himself, about the agreement with which the fans PlayStation can sleep peacefully: no, the series Call of Duty for the moment it won’t be the Xbox exclusive that many held. This is a “binding agreement” on the intention to maintain the series of militaristic simulators “following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard”. Acquisition that, if a recap of recent developments is needed, seems to have overcome the previous impasse. Of course Spencer’s pacifist rhetoric (in terms of “console wars”) did not fail to remind us that “We look forward to giving more choices in where to play to fans around the world.”
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 historic agreement: PlayStation will not lose Call of Duty, word of Xbox
Of course, despite the promising implications, we have no other details. In the past, the jade titan has tried to reach an agreement with Sony, but without success. Reason why the return of Call of Duty on consoles caused a sensation Nintendo, on which the promise was more explicit: ten years of guaranteed securities. As for today’s olive branch, Spencer only added the following. “I promise here and now that we will not take this franchise away from PlayStation. Naturally Sony will have to allow us to publish the game on their platforms. That said, you can testify that future releases in the series will also be on PS5.” In short, everyone really wins!
