Soldiering on with plans
Microsoft is yet to officially ink their deal to acquire Activision Blizzard, and it’s likely the negotiations for that purchase will go on for months to come. While Microsoft works to make that happen, they’re more than happy to talk about plans for Call of Duty should the deal get finalized.
In yet another statement from Microsoft, CEO and Xbox boss Phil Spencer talked about what Nintendo fans can expect from the Call of Duty franchise, and it’s not going to be a half-assed port.
“We expect to hit a certain level of quality on all of those games…so that’s our goal, and the same thing on PC and the same thing on Nintendo. So when we say available everywhere or not exclusive, we want to make absolutely the best version of Call of Duty on any of those platforms.”
“…It’s not about a skin on a gun, it’s about a certain mode of the game, the same version will be available on all platforms. If you’re a Minecraft player on PlayStation I don’t think you feel like you have the lesser version…we want to make sure those players feel like they have a great experience on the platform they choose to play on.”
All this talk is great to hear, but it’s just talk for now. Should the deal go through, we’ll see if Microsoft stays true to their word.
