Xbox boss Phil Spencer also stated that they are ready to make concessions for this.
It would not be wrong to say that the gaming industry has been mixed a lot after Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard for a record price . So much so that the ongoing inquiries by the British Competition Authority also express the concern about the impact of this agreement on the industry.
As a matter of fact, all this aside, Xbox boss Phil Spencer; Even though he signed a contract that Call of Duty, one of the main arteries of PlayStation, could return to PlayStation a few years after the agreement between Activision and Sony, as it can be seen, the efforts are not enough.
While SIE CEO Jim Ryan stated that this agreement was insufficient, Spencer once again came to the fore and stated that Microsoft could enter into a long-term agreement in order not to disturb this issue.
Call of Duty cannot be shared between two brands!
Phil Spencer, who made an interview on The Verge’s Decoder podcast, said that Sony and other institutions can make a deal in a way that makes them happy. Spencer said he hopes Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard will also be approved.
The idea of writing a contract that says ‘forever’ in it is a bit silly in my opinion. But I have no problem making a longer-term commitment that Sony and various regulators are comfortable with.
Spencer underlined that it is important that the Call of Duty brand stays with Sony as long as the players want it, while also saying that they will not place any losers in a possible long-term commitment.
We can predict that it will be positive for the industry and game lovers that Microsoft does not try to attract Call of Duty to their side by isolating Call of Duty from PlayStation by displaying such a neutral attitude.
