Sony expectation Microsoft to keep Activision Blizzardlist of games available on PlayStation communication. In a new statement issued to The Wall Street JournalA company spokesman noted: “We expect that Microsoft will abide by the contractual agreements and continue to ensure that Activision’s games are diverse.”
Ever since that rumor Microsoft plans to acquire Activision Blizzard was announced, one of the burning questions in the minds of players is about the state of Call of Duty: Will Microsoft get rid of PlayStation completely? Will only Warzone, as an existing community, still on the PlayStation platform? Nothing will really change, overall, despite the acquisition plan?
Of course, Sony’s claim isn’t simply a Call of Duty franchise; series like Overwatch, Spyro the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Diablo, Tony Hawk’s and more are all part of the deal. With Sony’s first official statement on the matter of pushing Microsoft to keep in mind ActiBlizz’s contractual obligations, we think something is amiss that means we’ll see the company’s games stay alive. on PlayStation – at least in the short term.
It’s also not the first time Microsoft has honored pre-existing contractual agreements; when Xbox owners announce acquisition of Bethesda parent company, Zenimax, in 2020, both Arkane’s Deathloop and Tango Gameworks: Tokyo’s Ghostwire are confirmed to remain PS5 exclusives. That didn’t stop Microsoft claims that Bethesda’s sci-fi RPG, Starfield, is her own some time later, however.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about how this acquisition will play out; it still needs to pass market regulators, before anything else. The initial statement – potentially damage control – from Sony addresses the main concern of some fans, but people out there still have a lot of questions about how all of this will work.
