In a recent segment at CNBC, Microsoft President Brad Smith elaborated further on future multiplatform support regarding Activision Blizzard titles. The company planned to continue releasing multiplatform Activision Blizzard games across PlayStation and Nintendo consoles. In fact, Smith says that Microsoft is planning to bring Call of Duty to the Switch once the acquisition is complete. Here’s what he had to say, according to VGC:
“One of the things we’re being very clear about as we move forward with the regulatory review of this acquisition is that great titles like Call of Duty from Activision Blizzard today, will continue to be available on the Sony PlayStation. We’d like to bring it to Nintendo devices. We’d like to bring the other popular titles that Activision Blizzard has, and ensure that they continue to be available on PlayStation, [and] that they become available on Nintendo.”
Call of Duty has been missing on Nintendo platforms since the Wii U generation and the Switch could finally bring the series back to a Nintendo family of consoles. With over 100 million Switch units sold, it looks like Microsoft is hoping to capitalize even more with their current Nintendo partnership.
