With the future of the Call of Duty franchise on PlayStation being a focal point of regulatory bodies from all over the world investigating Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Microsoft has revealed to New York Times that it offered PlayStation a 10-year deal to keep the popular shooter franchise on its platforms, according to PC Gamer.

This offer falls in line with similar other statements Microsoft has made recently, such as stating that it is willing to make a “longer-term commitment” to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer stating that Call of Duty will keep coming to PlayStation as long as PlayStation exists.

Microsoft has been trying to ensure that its acquisition of Activision Blizzard happens by any means, trying to make deals with Sony about bringing Call of Duty to PlayStation platforms. PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has earlier this year called Microsoft’s offers “inadequate”, and, according to rumours, has personally visited EU headquarters over the acquisition.

Microsoft’s attempted acquisition of Activision Blizzard came under deeper scrutiny earlier this month, with the European Commission formally announcing a phase 2 investigation into the deal.
