The console war is hell
When Microsoft made the move to pick up Activision-Blizzard, there was a lot of chatter about Call of Duty coming over to the Switch. As a matter of fact, Microsoft has shared an interest in making this happen in the past. While it still hasn’t come to fruition, Microsoft still has that desire.
Xbox head Phil Spencer has been answering all sorts of gaming questions today, and the topic of Call of Duty has been covered quite a bit. At one point in the discussion, Spencer specifically called out the idea of Call of Duty on Switch as being something they’d like to see happen.
“Call of Duty specifically will be available on PlayStation. I’d love to see it on the Switch, I’d love to see the game playable on many different screens. Our intent is to treat CoD like Minecraft.”
Of course, if any of this is going to happen, Microsoft’s deal with Activision-Blizzard has to first go through. There have been a number of hurdles for Microsoft to overcome on that matter, and the deal still isn’t 100%. If/when that acquisition wraps up, then the path for Call of Duty on Switch becomes a lot more clear.
