Despite Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, it sounds like Xbox will still be supporting its franchises on Switch.

Some have been concerned about what would happen to Activision Blizzard games on competing platforms. However, Microsoft has said that it will continue to release Call of Duty games on PlayStation consoles, and is “interested in taking similar steps to support Nintendo’s successful platform.”

The full note from Microsoft president and vice chair Brad Smith reads:

“Microsoft will continue to make Call of Duty and other popular Activision Blizzard titles available on PlayStation through the term of any existing agreement with Activision. And we have committed to Sony that we will also make them available on PlayStation beyond the existing agreement and into the future so that Sony fans can continue to enjoy the games they love. We are also interested in taking similar steps to support Nintendo’s successful platform. We believe this is the right thing for the industry, for gamers and for our business.”

Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard was announced last month. However, it will take some time for the deal to fully close. 

Some of the notable IPs under Activision Blizzard include Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, and Overwatch.
