Xbox exec says it would love to see Call of Duty series coming to Nintendo Switch
In order to ensure the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Microsoft is in the final stage of work, especially on the issue of whether Call of Duty is exclusive. In order not to be labeled as a monopoly, the company has been communicating that it will continue to launch follow-up works for the PS platform, but At an event early today (October 27), Microsoft Xbox executives mentioned Nintendo’s gaming platform.
At the Wall Street Journal event, Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, revealed to the media that “Call of Duty” will come to the PlayStation platform. He personally would also like to see the series come to the Nintendo Switch. “I would love to see the game appear on many different screens, and our goal is to treat Call of Duty like Minecraft.”
This isn’t the first time Microsoft has mentioned that Xbox intends to bring Call of Duty games to the Switch platform. Just after news of the Activision Blizzard acquisition broke, Microsoft President Brad Smith said the company would be preparing to launch the game on “Nintendo devices.”
After Microsoft acquired Minecraft, the game continued to exist on the platform at the time. Later, it also landed on Switch, and the follow-up “Minecraft Dungeons”. The Legend of Minecraft, which will be released next year, is also confirmed to land on various platforms, including Switch.
Despite the Switch’s global success, no game in the Call of Duty franchise has yet landed on the platform.
