Spencer is prepared to give a commitment to Sony, regulators and Activision Blizzard. This will ensure that Call of Duty remains on the PlayStation.

Microsoft’s gaming head stressed that Call of Duty is still available on the PlayStation, without any additional restrictions. The publisher won’t require Sony console owners with Game Pass subscriptions or place any artificial restrictions in the future.
“No one is standing behind me. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 runs great on Xbox and PlayStation. Then there’s the next, another, next and so forth.
