“Call of Duty” sales on Sony PS for as long as it still is: Microsoft Gaming CEO

Whenever Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer is interviewed, one question is sure to be asked: the fate of “Call of Duty” on PlayStation. And his answer has always been the same, Microsoft has no plans to pull the game off the PlayStation platform after the $69 billion Activision acquisition.

In a recent podcast interview with YouTubers Justine and Jenna Ezarik, Spencer answered the above question again in a more direct way: ” As long as the PlayStation is around, Call of Duty will continue to be available on that platform .” Spencer also compares Call of Duty to Minecraft, which Microsoft acquired in 2014. Spencer said the game isn’t limited to its platform, and Call of Duty will be as well.

Spencer made a similar point during the Wall Street Journal tech conference last week when he mentioned Microsoft’s plans to bring Call of Duty to the Nintendo Switch, signaling the company’s commitment to keeping the game available across platforms, including competitive opponents platforms.

Despite Spencer’s repeated comments aimed at convincing regulators around the world that the acquisition won’t hurt the market and Microsoft’s rivals, Microsoft is still struggling to gain approval from various regulators around the world, including the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the European Commission, and the UK Competition and Markets Authority.
