|Microsoft And Sony “Not Close” To Any Deal For Activision|
Call of Duty is coming to Nvidia GeForce Now and Nintendo platforms after Microsoft signed a 10-year deal with its somewhat rivals. This is all to appease European Union antitrust regulators who have issued an antitrust warning to Microsoft over its proposed merger with Activision Blizzard.
Earlier today, Microsoft president and vice chair Brad Smith confirmed in a tweet that Nintendo has signed a 10-year contract that will bring Xbox games to its consoles. Should the Activision Blizzard merger go through, that will include Call of Duty. Prior to meeting with European Commission regulators, Smith made a similar announcement for Nnvidia’s GeForce Now game streaming service.

Sony, however, remains opposed to signing any deal with Microsoft promising Call of Duty would remain on PlayStation. Microsoft’s attempts to deliver an olive branch to Sony have been reportedly rebuffed according to sources speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, with the two companies “not close” to inking a similar 10-year commitment.
