How Microsoft will handle releasing Call of Duty games on platforms outside of Xbox and Windows should the company’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard go through has been a major sticking point for regulatory bodies, and Microsoft itself has taken several steps in recent weeks to allay some of those concerns.

The company has signed binding 10-year agreements for future Call of Duty releases with a number of companies for their platforms, including the likes of Nintendo, Nvidia, and most recently, cloud gaming company Boosteroid, having previously also agreed to a similar commitment with Valve for Steam, and more similar agreements are also in the works.

That’s according to Microsoft president Brad Smith, who recently told the Wall Street Journal that more such deals will follow in the coming weeks.

That said, it seems an agreement between Microsoft and Sony still isn’t close. A 10-year deal has been on the table for PlayStation for a while, but based on information being put out by Activision, Sony only seems to be interested in blocking the company’s acquisition by Microsoft.
