Microsoft signs 10-year deal to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo platforms

Microsoft has signed a “10-year-commitment” to bring the popular Call of Duty franchise to Nintendo platforms for the very first time, provided that their acquisition of Activision Blizzard is closed.

The deal was announced by the chief executive officer of Microsoft Gaming, Phil Spencer, on Twitter, as seen below:

According to Spencer, Microsoft will still continue to offer the first-person-shooting game on Steam, simultaneously to Xbox consoles, after the merger with Activision Blizzard is closed.

It can be recalled that Microsoft had recently pushed to acquire Activision Blizzard for over $68.8 billion last January. The deal is currently waiting for federal approval, amid concerns of the merger reducing competition in the gaming market.

The commitment will see the Call of Duty franchise finally playable on Nintendo consoles, particularly the popular Nintendo Switch.
