Call of Duty will continue to be available on PlayStation after Microsoft completes Activision acquisition
In a tweet, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer said that CoD does have a future on Sony platforms.
"Had good calls this week with leaders at Sony. I confirmed our intent to honour all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard and our desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation," said Spencer.
"Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship," he added.
There were concerns that CoD may become a Microsoft Xbox exclusive franchise.
apanese technology giant Sony, which saw its stock tanked after Microsoft acquired gaming company Activision Blizzard for $69 billion, on Thursday said it expects Satya Nadella-run tech giant to ensure that games like CoD remain available across platforms including its own Playstation gaming consoles.
In a statement to The Wall Street Journal, Sony Group said: "that Microsoft will abide by contractual agreements and continue to ensure Activision games are multiplatform."
CoD is hugely popular across Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation gaming consoles.
Sony has a CoD deal in place with Activision for more than five years.
Spencer earlier said that Activision Blizzard games are enjoyed on a variety of platforms and "we plan to continue to support those communities moving forward".
Call of Duty, Diablo and Overwatch are among the major titles expected to be made available on Xbox Game Pass
