After revealing that it offered a ten-year deal to Sony to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation, Microsoft has confirmed a similar commitment to Nintendo. Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer tweeted that the shooter franchise would be available on Nintendo platforms for ten years following its acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

“Microsoft has entered into a 10-year commitment to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo following the merger of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard King. Microsoft is committed to helping bring more games to more people – however they choose to play,” said Spencer. He also confirmed that the company will continue to offer Call of Duty on Steam, along with its release on Xbox after the acquisition.

Despite Brazil and Saudi Arabia regulators approving the deal, the Competition and Markets Authority in the United Kingdom and the European Commission have been scrutinizing it heavily. There are also rumors that the US Federal Trade Commission could file an antitrust lawsuit to block the acquisition. According to reports, Microsoft is allegedly willing to go to court, which could push the deal’s completion back past the previously stated fiscal year 2023 window. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.
