Call of Duty will continue to be available on PlayStation

Microsoft executives have confirmed that Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation following the announcement that the tech giant will purchase Activision Blizzard.

The $68.7 billion (£50.57 billion) deal aroused concerns about the future of the popular shooter video game brand, which is popular on both PlayStation and Xbox.

On Thursday, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer tweeted that the game would be available on Sony platforms in the future.

"Had good calls this week with leaders at Sony," Spencer he posted, external.

"I confirmed our intent to honour all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard and our desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation."

He added: "Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship."

Microsoft will acquire gaming titles such as Call of Duty, Warcraft, and Overwatch as part of the largest acquisition in the company's history, which is anticipated to be completed in 2023.

Microsoft believes that it will help them expand their gaming business across mobile, PC, and consoles, as well as provide metaverse building pieces.

Call of Duty began in 2003 with World War II-themed games, but has since expanded to include the Cold War, the 1980s, future realms, and outer space.
