Nintendo and Xbox sign a 10-year deal to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo platforms
Ahead of the EU hearing on the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Xbox and Nintendo have announced that they have signed a legally binding contract which will bring Call of Duty titles to the Switch and other Nintendo platforms for the next ten years.
Previously, in the face of criticism that Xbox would make Call of Duty an exclusive franchise, the video game giant had always claimed that it would keep the FPS franchise on both Sony and Nintendo consoles for the foreseeable future.
What’s interesting about the Xbox and Nintendo deal is that the latest installments in the Call of Duty franchise have completely ignored a Nintendo Switch version, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II being the latest example.
Even with these Call of Duty deals, concerns remain that Microsoft is gaining too much control of the video game market should the Activision Blizzard deal go through.
Does the idea of Call of Duty coming to Nintendo platforms appeal to you?
