Call of Duty Will Be on PlayStation for At Least Three Years

Being a best-seller for almost two decades, Call of Duty first-person shooter franchise is seeing a major decline in player-interest in recent years due to lackluster efforts and rushed releases by publisher studio Activision every year now.

After latest acquisition of Activision/Blizzard by Microsoft, fans were concerned whether Call of Duty series will become Xbox-exclusive but at least three more titles are coming to PlayStation consoles according to a report on Bloomberg.

Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier reports that Activision/Blizzard already decided to release at least next three Call of Duty games on PlayStation consoles, even before Microsoft's pending buyout of $69 billion was announced publicly.

Activision plans to release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 reboot from developer Infinity Ward later this year, a new series entry by Treyarch next year and Call of Duty: Warzone 2, which will be launching for PlayStation and Xbox in 2023.

In first response to Microsoft's proposal for Activision/Blizzard takeover, Sony spokesman said that they expect these games to be on multiplatform due to "contractual agreements" but no one knows what happens once the deal expire.

Activision planning a Warzone sequel means, they will support at least one Call of Duty game on PlayStation once these contracts are over. Warzone 2 will have no weapon integration from past and is a whole new game for current-gen.

Xbox head Phil Spencer has also confirmed his desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation via a latest Tweet. He has reportedly talked to Sony executives on multiple occasions and is intent to honor any existing agreements with Activision.

Activision/Blizzard acquisition is currently pending and is expected to close by 2023 fiscal year, which ends on June 30, 2023. Microsoft is likely to lay out future plans then and will eventually determine if Call of Duty will be Xbox-exclusive.
