Brad Smith, President of Microsoft, has tweeted this morning that they have now signed a binding 10 year contract with Nintendo to bring the popular Call of Duty games to Nintendo platforms. The deal will see Call of Duty games release day and date with Xbox and PlayStation Call of Duty games. The games will also have the same features and content parity as the aforementioned platforms. From the wording it sounds as though this applies to Nintendo’s next system, but it could include the Nintendo Switch as well.
If on Switch, it’s probably going to be cloud streaming.
Probably just warzone.
I honestly don’t give a Rattata’s Mudbray about CoD as it’s the least important IP, would much rather have Crash and Spyro. Anyways, whether CoD is coming or not (pain) remains to be seen regardless of my stance on it.
Can’t wait to play Call of Duty Gameboy pocket edition!
Should’ve been Hi-Fi Rush
It could be. The tweet specifically says XBOX and Activision titles.
Huh, you’re right. I’m gonna hold off from buying a Steam Deck until we see more news regarding this partnership.
I rather they give the rights to Banjo-Kazooie and some developer makes a Threeie. What gain is Microsoft making by ignoring what Nintendo fans really want? Do they know how much money they THREEIE would bring in if it was on Switch?
I would rather the sold the IPs banjo Kazooie and Killer Instinct to Retro studios and Nintendo. Your words are heavenly.
The only CoD I want on Switch is the OG Black Ops but on future consoles it’ll be nice for people who actually like the series to play new games on Nintendo systems
Well, that’s one way to get their deal approved.
Monopoly? Activision’s biggest IP is now legally bound to the competition!
Please ignore the fact that absolutely no one on the Nintendo ecosystem actually cares about (modern) CoD…
People using that word, but they don’t know what it means. It’s still an Oligopoly like it’s been for years.
