Sony and Microsoft have worked out an agreement to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation for three more years. However, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan has also reportedly called the Microsoft’s offer to keep the title on PlayStation unsatisfactory on a lot of levels.
The disagreement between the two companies ends in an arrangement of $68,7 billion dollars (eight percent a hundred million dollars CAD). The acquisition is being criticised by the Regulatory Authority, with concerns about a company keeping Activision Blizzards games from its competitor consoles, like the PlayStation.
Last week, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer stated that Call of Duty is going to remain multiplatform once Activision Blizzard is acquired. We heard that deal might take franchises likeCall of Dutyaway from the places where people play them currently, wrote Spencer. That’s the reason, as we said before, we voted to make the same version of Call of Duty available on PlayStation on the same day the game will launch elsewhere. We’ll continue to enable people to play with each other between platforms and devices.
A good call this week with Sony leaders. I confirmed that we were able to honor all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard, and our desire for a stop of call of duty on the Xbox One. Sony is a big part of our business, and we cherish our relationship.

According to Ryan, Microsoft only offers for Call of Duty to stay on PlayStation for three years after the current agreement between Activision and Sony ends. After nearly 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their proposal failed to take account of our problems.
He added that we want to protect PlayStation gamers from having the highest Call of Duty experience, and Microsoft has a misunderstood this principle.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is likely to go on the PlayStation, along with other Call of Duty franchise titles that will be released in the next three years. Call of Duty would then become an exclusive Xbox-exclusive franchise.
