Sony and Microsoft have reached an agreement to preserve the Call of Duty series on PlayStation for a 10-year period. This decision comes after Sony reportedly realised that Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard was inevitable.

Microsoft has confirmed that Call of Duty will continue to be available on PlayStation. In the future, users will have more options for where and how to play their favourite games. Sony and Microsoft have reportedly reached a “binding agreement” to maintain Call of Duty on PlayStation, according to Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer. He said, “We are pleased to announce that Microsoft and @PlayStation had signed a binding agreement to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. We look forward to a future where players globally have more choice to play their favorite games.”

After Microsoft initially presented Sony with a 10-year contract in December 2022, Sony resisted agreeing to a Call of Duty agreement with the corporation. Rather, Sony has consistently stated in submissions to regulators that it is concerned Microsoft may make Call of Duty Xbox exclusive or even destroy the PlayStation versions of the game.

Although the 10-year commitment for Call of Duty on PlayStation is not included in Microsoft’s first statement, Xbox’s head of worldwide communications, Kari Perez, confirmed it to The Verge.

Perez further revealed that the deal is exclusive to COD. As a result, the pact is comparable to a 10-year contract between Microsoft and Nintendo but differs from the many agreements Microsoft has made with Nvidia and other cloud gaming platforms to bring Call of Duty and other Xbox / Activision games to competing services.

According to Verge, Microsoft’s initial agreement proposal to Sony in January 2022 included retaining “all existing Activision console titles on Sony, including future versions in the Call of Duty franchise or any other current Activision franchise on Sony through December 31st, 2027.” The conditions of the agreement have obviously altered since the initial offer, and the 10-year extension is only applicable to COD.
