There has been a lot of speculation and opinions from fans and industry analysts on what the Microsoft’s purchase of Blizzard-Activision will mean for the latter’s various IPs being released on non-Microsoft platforms, such as the Nintendo Switch.
Well, the matter has been somewhat addressed by Xbox head Phil Spencer. However, it only applies to the Call of Duty franchise. Spencer has confirmed on Twitter that Microsoft has “entered into a 10-year commitment to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo following the merger of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard King”. Meanwhile, Call of Duty games will continue to be released on Steam. You can see Spencer’s tweets about the matter down below.
