Xbox Boss offers hope to PlayStation fans after the purchase of Activision Blizzard
Call of Duty (short COD) is a computer system game series of the US Publisher Activision from the category of the ego shooter. The first title of the collection, created by Infinity Ward, was released in the loss of 2003 and also plays in World Battle II. New games are published in an annual rhythm, most recently called Phone Call of Duty: Lead (2021).
The collection is among the largest and most successful video game franchise business. By November 2009, more than 55 million games were offered, making the series total earnings of greater than $3 billion. In 2011, more than 500 developers worked at the Telephone Call of Duty brand name. Along with Infinity Ward, the Studios Trey arch as well as Sledgehammer Games coming from Activision are responsible for the development of brand-new components, there are other developer workshops of Activision, which sustains support for growth.
Today early, Microsoft surprised the world of games by announcing his intention to buy Activision Blizzard. Naturally, this announcement has generated many questions about the future of the company’s franchises, especially Call of Duty. It is not clear if the series will continue to be launched on the PlayStation platforms or if it will become an exclusive Xbox. Fortunately for PlayStation fanatics, Phil Spencer has offered some hope. Speaking with Bloomberg (through Charlie intel), Xbox’s chief insinuated that there are still plans to continue supporting PlayStation, although nothing is written in stone, when writing this article.
I will only tell the players who play Activision Blizzard games on the Sony platform: it is not our intention to move the communities from that platform and continue committed to that, Spencer told Bloomberg.
Unfortunately, there is no way to know what will happen to the Blizzard Activision franchises, at this time. After the purchase of Bethesda by Microsoft, the games of that company became exclusive to Xbox, with Steer Scheduled to launch at the end of this year. Some fanatics predict that we could see a similar circumstance for Activision Blizzard, but the Call of Duty series is a great seller in PlayStation. It seems much more likely that new releases become exclusive to Xbox, while it called Duty: War Zone and other existing Call of Duty games will continue to be supported in PlayStation.
Regardless of the platforms to which the Activision Blizzard games arrive, Xbox will have some advantages. Xbox Game Pass will probably see a large influx of Activision Blizzard games, as well as releases on the day of the launch of new games. Only that could convince more players to join the Subscription Service. The purchase feels like a change of game for the industry, in a way that rivals even with the Bethesda agreement. We will not know the scope of the purchase for a while, so franchise fans like Call of Duty will only have to wait and see how things are developed.
