Phil Spencer Says Microsoft Has "Desire to Keep Call of Duty on PlayStation"

Earlier this week, when Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard, some fans were concerned about how the deal would affect platform exclusivity for Activision Blizzard's games, including Call of Duty and Overwatch.

In an official press release, Microsoft only vaguely said, "Activision Blizzard games are enjoyed on a variety of platforms and we plan to continue to support those communities moving forward." Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming told Bloomberg, "I'll just say to players out there who are playing Activision Blizzard games on Sony's platform: It's not our intent to pull communities away from that platform and we remained committed to that."

Spencer has recently written on Twitter, giving us a clear statement on how Microsoft will handle Activision Blizzard's titles following the acquisition. "Had good calls this week with leaders at Sony. I confirmed our intent to honor all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard and our desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation," he wrote. "Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship."
