Call Of Duty Access! Microsoft Signs 10-Year Deal With Nintendo

With this deal that means Microsoft has lived up to the promise to the Federal Trade Commission, that it will make Call of Duty available to other gaming platforms companies in which Nintendo was also included.

Only if its $68.7 billion deal to acquire Activision Blizzard is approved.

The whole announcement was made via tweet in an image of the binding agreement and Brad Smith’s official tweet.

“We’ve now signed a binding 10-year contract to bring Xbox games to Nintendo’s gamers. This is just part of our commitment to bring Xbox games and Activision titles like Call of Duty to more players on more platforms.”

The whole agreement means that Nintendo players will get the games on the same day as Xbox, with full feature and content parity. So, they can experience Call of Duty just as Xbox and PlayStation gamers enjoy Call of Duty.

Equal Call of Duty Access

Microsoft said it is committed to providing long-term equal access to Call of Duty to other gaming platforms.

The FTC has sued Microsoft for potential antitrust claims. Microsoft has not yet been able to strike a similar deal with Sony, which is trying to get regulators to quash the deal.

Microsoft laid out its case against the FTC in December, describing itself as “the third-place manufacturer of gaming consoles”. And its acquisition target as “one of many publishers of popular video games.”

It’s strange to see Microsoft cracking some marvelous deal after laying off over thousands of employees last month.
