Microsoft and Sony have been working together since the Wii and DS era, and that bond has only grown with each passing year. Truth be told, in the last few years alone we’ve seen the two companies get quite buddy-buddy with one another, and it seems like that relationship is about to get considerably stronger.

While it took much longer than anyone anticipated, Microsoft has now officially gobbled up Activision Blizzard. This means Microsoft will be able to bring Activision Blizzard’s titles wherever they see fit, and they’ve already confirmed Call of Duty on Nintendo platforms for at least 10 years. Obviously, Microsoft has more plans than just one game going forward, and they’ve stated that fact very clearly in a new interview.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella spoke about the Activision Blizzard acquisition, and she made it clear that Nintendo fans can expect to see a considerable amount of content going forward.

“We love gaming. In fact, Microsoft Flight Simulator was born even before Windows. But, we were number three, number four. And now with Activision I think we have a chance of being a good publisher — quite frankly — on Sony, Nintendo, PCs and Xbox. So yeah, we’re excited about that acquisition closing and I’m glad we got it through.”

This is good news for me if it means we get any future Banjo, crash, Spyro, Doom, etc. on Nintendo.

Microsoft will be the next to drop their own hardware. The next Sega if you will.
