Sony: Microsoft is not sincere, "Call of Duty" will only stay on the PS platform

Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox game console business, promised that even if the company's acquisition of well-known game developer Activision Blizzard was approved, the "Call of Duty" series of games will still exist on Sony PlayStation game consoles for "Several years" (beyond Sony's existing contract with Activision), and future Call of Duty games will hit PlayStation on launch day.


He emphasized that the proposal "goes far beyond typical gaming industry protocols."


Sony PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said in an interview with foreign media GamesIndustry that the proposal "is insufficient on many levels."


He pointed out that there is a time limit for Microsoft to propose that future Call of Duty games continue to land on the PS console, which is three years after the current agreement between Sony and Activision expires.


There are rumors that the agreement signed by Sony and Activision will expire in 2024 or 2025, which will be extended for another three years, which means that after 2027 or 2028, the "Call of Duty" game may no longer appear on the PlayStation platform. , or it may not be added on the day of the first launch.


Ryan said: "I didn't want to comment on what I understand to be a private business discussion, but I felt compelled to clarify because Phil Spencer brought this to the public forum."


“Microsoft says Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation for 3 years after Activision’s deal with Sony ends. After nearly 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their proposal is on many levels It was not sincere and did not adequately consider the impact of this decision on our players. We want to ensure that PlayStation players continue to receive a high-quality Call of Duty experience, and Microsoft's proposal undermines that principle."
