Since Microsoft’s plans to buy Activision Blizzard were revealed, the future of Call of Duty It has been a topic that has generated doubts and speculations among video game fans. And it is that although Microsoft assured that the title will continue to be available for PlayStation consoles for at least two more years, until now nothing supports that eventually the company could not leave that franchise as something exclusive for Xbox and PC consoles.

In that sense, before the concerns that some authorities have expressed about the effect that the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft could have on the video game market, this week it was revealed that during January of this year the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, would have contacted Jim Ryan, the Head of PlayStation, to promise that Call of Duty It will continue to be present in the consoles of the Sony company for a longer time.

While what exactly Spencer said to Ryan hasn’t been revealed, in a statement to the portal TheVerge the Head of Xbox noted: “In January, we provided a signed deal to Sony to guarantee Call of Duty on PlayStation, with feature and content parity, for at least several years beyond Sony’s current contract, an offer that goes far beyond typical PlayStation deals. the video game industry”.

For now it is not clear how many years this deal implies and it is not known what will happen after that, but it is likely that Xbox and Microsoft will have to clarify the panorama sooner or later if they do not want us to Call of Duty be a factor that stops the purchase of Activision Blizzard.
