Sony called Microsoft’s proposal to keep Call of Duty on Playstation “inadequate”

days ago they we count that Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, had assured that Call of Duty will remain available for PlayStation for “several years” despite Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard. But while that seemed like a good sign for both PlayStation users and the organizations that are regulating the Activision Blizzard acquisition, it seems that such a deal would not be as attractive for Sony.

After all, during this week the CEO of PlayStation, Jim Ryan, pointed out that Microsoft would not have offered an extension for the permanence of Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles and would only have reaffirmed the previous terms of an agreement that established that the popular game would continue on those consoles for three more years.

“I did not intend to comment on what I understood to be a private business discussion, but I feel the need to set the record straight because Phil Spencer brought this to the public forum,” Ryan said in a statement to Games Industry.biz. “Microsoft has only offered Call of Duty to remain on PlayStation for three years after the current deal between Activision and Sony ends. After almost 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their proposal was inadequate on many levels and did not take into account the impact on our players. We want to ensure that PlayStation players continue to have the highest quality Call of Duty experience, and Microsoft’s proposal undermines this principle.”

While it would be easy to dismiss this feud as intercompany tension over a popular video game franchise, the issue of the future of Call of Duty It is not minor since it would be a factor to consider for the regulatory entities that have to approve or reject the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft.
