Xbox boss has good news for PlayStation gamers
Future games in the Call of Duty series are expected developed under the banner of Microsoft. Nevertheless, Xbox boss Phil Spencer wants to continue to publish the shooter on the PlayStation.
Spencer now reveals to The Verge that he made a commitment to PlayStation boss Jim Ryan back in January. So Call of Duty would still be there “for at least a few years” appear on the PlayStation after current contracts with Sony expired.
Here he refers to an agreement between Sony and Activision, according to which Call of Duty must appear on the PlayStation for a certain period of time. However, it is not known how long this deal will last. PlayStation players can now join the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta even earlier.

Previous statements from Microsoft show that the Xbox manufacturer with this assurance does not act from the goodness of heart. In a statement to Brazilian regulators, Microsoft said it would not be profitable to stop sales on the PlayStation. Even now, Spencer leaves a back door open by not making clear what exactly “a few years” means.
Microsoft is also interested in pledging Call of Duty for the PlayStation so as not to jeopardize the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. British monopoly guards have already sounded the alarm and want to take another close look at the biggest gaming deal of all time.
