PlayStation sees Xbox offer with Call of Duty ‘inappropriate in many respects’

The intention of Microsoft to take over Activision Blizzard It seems that it is going to bring more debate and controversy than it seemed at first, something that is not surprising given the importance of this movement in the video game industry and the amount of the offer close to 69,000 million dollars.

During the last days there have been news about the investigations what are they doing watchdogs of jurisdiction over the acquisition, while phil spencerhead of Xbox, assured in several statements that they want to take their games to the maximum number of players possible and has even promised to keep Call of Duty for “several more years” on PlayStation consoles once the current agreement that Sony already had with Activision Blizzard ends.

After these statements, Jim Ryanhead of the PlayStation brand, wanted to come to the fore by issuing a statement to the portal in which rates the Xbox deal as “inappropriate in many respects.

I had no intention of talking about what I thought was a private business negotiation but I feel the need to set the record straight because Phil Spencer has brought the issue into the public arena“, comments Jim Ryan in his statement. “microsoft has only offered to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation for three years after the current deal between Sony and Activision ends. After almost 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, his proposal was inappropriate in many ways and did not take into account the impact on our players. We want to ensure that PlayStation gamers continue to have the best Call of Duty experience possible, and Microsoft’s proposal undermines this principle.“.

With the current proposal of Microsoft Call of Duty could be exclusive to Xbox in 2028

According to the Gamesindustry.byz portal itself, the current agreement between Sony and Activision lasts for the next three launches saga canonicals including the next Modern Warfare 2, so Microsoft’s proposal would be to extend the agreement until 2027 (taking into account that a Call of Duty continues to be published each year), being able to the saga becoming exclusive to Xbox consoles in 2028 if there was no new agreement.

It must be taken into account that the possibility of Microsoft taking over some of the most important sagas on the market, such as Call of Duty, was one of the points highlighted by the United Kingdom to continue investigating the feasibility of purchasing Activision Blizzard at the retail level. competition as it could “undermine Sony’s ability to compete”.
