Call Of Duty is coming to Nintendo Switch

As reported by Kotaku, “Call of Duty might be one of the most popular series on the planet, but it’s not exactly the kind of game you think of when you picture the Nintendo Switch. So in one way, it’s very strange to see Microsoft come out tonight to announce a “10-year commitment” to release CoD games on Nintendo platforms, starting with the Switch.”

They also said, “Microsoft has entered into a 10-year commitment to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo following the merger of Microsoft and Activision Blizzard King.  Microsoft is committed to helping bring more games to more people – however they choose to play.

I‘m also pleased to confirm that Microsoft has committed to continue to offer Call of Duty on Steam simultaneously to Xbox after we have closed the merger with Activision Blizzard King.”

CEO Phil Spencer said, “Microsoft is committed to helping bring more games to more people, however they choose to play,”.

Spencer also mentioned that “Microsoft has committed to continue to offer Call of Duty on @Steam simultaneously to Xbox”.

Earlier this week, Microsoft president Brad Smith had confirmed that Microsoft offered a 10-year contract to Sony to make future CoD games available on PlayStation.

Smith noted that “Sony has emerged as the loudest objector” to Microsoft’s proposed $68.7 billion acquisition and “it’s as excited about this deal as Blockbuster was about the rise of Netflix”.

According to Metro Entertainment, “The idea of bringing the series to Nintendo’s platform was always on the cards, with Microsoft expressing interest not long after it announced the Activision buy out.

It’s not something that’s been discussed since, but the topic has come back up now as Microsoft attempt to curry favour with regulators and push the Activision deal through.”
