Ahead of EU hearing on Activision Blizzard acquisition, Xbox and Nintendo say they’ve signed a deal legally binding contract which will bring Call of Duty titles to the Switch and other Nintendo platforms for the next ten years.
Previously, in the face of criticism that Xbox would make Call of Duty an exclusive franchise, the video game giant has always maintained that it will keep the FPS franchise on Sony and Nintendo consoles for the foreseeable future.
What’s interesting about the Xbox and Nintendo deal is that the latest installments in the Call of Duty franchise have completely skipped a Nintendo Switch release, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II being the latest example.
Even with these Call of Duty deals, concerns remain that Microsoft would gain too much control of the video game market should the Activision Blizzard deal go through.
Does the idea of Call of Duty coming to Nintendo platforms appeal to you?
