With Xbox acquiring Activision Blizzard, fans are wondering whether franchises like Call of Duty and many others will become exclusive to the green side.
In his statement, Ryan revealed that Spencer offered to keep Call of Duty for three more years, once the agreement between Sony and Activision and Sony ends. The head of PlayStation claimed that Microsoft’s offer ignores the impact the lack of Call of Duty will have on gamers outside the Xbox realm.
As Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision continues to be investigated by regulators around the world, Sony have clamored about Xbox’s efforts to snatch the Call of Duty experience from PlayStation owners. And while Xbox has claimed to have had no plans to put the exclusive tag on the famed FPS franchise, Jim Ryan’s recent statements say otherwise.
