Microsoft Plans to Sign More "Call of Duty" Agreements With Other Platforms

With these distribution agreements, the company wants to show that it has no intention to limit user access to CoD.

During a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Brad Smith, Microsoft's Vice Chair and President, issued a statement regarding the ongoing acquisition of Activision Blizzard, saying that Microsoft not only has no intentions of restricting user access to Call of Duty but also plans to increase accessibility by signing additional distribution agreements with other platforms.

With these distribution agreements, Smith noted, Microsoft wants to show regulators, who are currently examining the acquisition and whose decision on the matter is set to arrive later this Spring, that its plan to buy Activision Blizzard will improve user access to Call of Duty. So far, Microsoft has signed three CoD deals with Nintendo, NVIDIA, and Boosteroid, the largest independent cloud-streaming company with around four million active users.

"If the only argument is that Microsoft is going to withhold Call of Duty from other platforms, and we've now entered into contracts that are going to bring this to many more devices and many more platforms, that is a pretty hard case to make to a court," Smith told WSJ.
