The dispute between Sony and Microsoft continues for Call of Duty… or maybe not, according to the latest statements of the Japanese company.
The war shooter series is one of the most important on the market, as demonstrated also by the success of Modern Warfare 2 (which you can find on Amazon at a truly remarkable price) and for this reason it has become the focus of fight between the two companies.
While Xbox is preparing to have the franchise after the agreement with Activision, taking care to provide Call of Duty on each console in the best possible way.
Also including Nintendo Switch, in a historic agreement that will bring the shooter on the hybrid console at any cost defying the hardware.
After the umpteenth signing of Microsoft with Activision, this time relating to Call of Duty Mobile, which arrived a few hours ago, Sony seems to have thrown in the towel.
Sony’s response was reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, and it looks like that the Japanese company has no intention of countering the umpteenth move by Microsoft.
Microsoft president Brad Smith said that they are not currently talking to Sony about Call of Duty, nor has an agreement been reached.
As rumors circulated in February that the two companies had met to discuss a deal, Smith told the Wall Street Journal that they are not currently engaged in discussions of an agreement of some kind.
It really seems like the classic moment of calm before the storm. Even considering how much Sony and Microsoft have fought in the last year, it hard to think it’s over here.
Everything really flew, especially on the subject of Call of Duty and Activision, with really high voltage peaks over the months.
Furthermore Call of Duty could be the protagonist not only in the world of video games, acquisitions or not. For a change, Henry Cavill is involved, who would be in talks to appear in a film inspired by the shooter.
