Microsoft will keep Call Of Duty on PlayStation "several more years"

Xbox will respect the marketing agreements between PlayStation and the Call Of Duty video game so that it reaches the Sony console for “several more years”, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer promised in a letter sent to Jim Ryan, boss from PlayStation.

Likewise, the executive pointed out that although the acquisition of Activision Blizzard is an important step for their business, they are looking for more content through investment in new games, associations or more agreements to reach other regions of creators.

It should be noted that these comments came after several controversies between competing companies, as even Xbox accused of paying “blocks” so that content was not added to Game Pass, according to a document presented by Microsoft before the .
