Putting out the call to Nintendo fans
After nearly two years of back-and-forths, legal battles, clarifications and setbacks, Microsoft finally has the green light to gobble up Activision. That means there’s some big changes ahead for all of gaming, and quite a sizable shift for Nintendo fans as well.
Microsoft previously claimed that if they secured Activision, they would be brining Call of Duty to Nintendo fans on whatever Nintendo hardware was available at the time. Not only that, but the Nintendo-related Call of Duty releases would have feature parity with other versions. Now that the Microsoft deal is official, Microsoft is sticking to those claims.
On the Official Xbox Podcast Head of Xbox Phil Spencer talked about the future of Call of Duty on Nintendo, and it’s clear the company is serious about bringing Nintendo fans into the fold.
“For Call of Duty players on Playstation, and in the future on Nintendo, I want you to feel 100% part of the community. I don’t want you to feel like there’s content you’re missing out, there’s skins you’re missing out, there’s timing you’re missing out on. That’s not the goal. I want the Call of Duty nation to feel supported across all platforms.”
