Call of Duty will stay on Playstation

In the grand arena of the gaming world, a cloud of uncertainty had been hanging over the beloved video game series ‘Call of Duty’ and its future on the Sony PlayStation. This was a result of the looming $69 billion merger between tech titan Microsoft and ‘Call of Duty’ creator, Activision Blizzard.

The news of the largest merger in the tech industry’s history caused a ripple of concern among dedicated PlayStation users. However, these fears were recently calmed by none other than Microsoft’s Chief Executive Officer, Satya Nadella.

As reported by Bloomberg, Nadella assured that the much-adored military commando game isn’t leaving PlayStation any time soon. He pledged to keep the crown jewel of Activision on the PS platform, a statement that provides relief amidst the tense regulatory scrutiny surrounding the deal.

This saga kicked off when the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with a worried gaze at the video game market’s competitive landscape, implored a judge to pump the brakes on this enormous merger.

The FTC’s main worry was that this deal would push the scales of the gaming world in favor of Microsoft, leaving Sony and Nintendo in the dust. The prized possession at the heart of the issue? ‘Call of Duty’, one of the best-selling games of all time.

A federal court in San Francisco was the stage for this heated discourse, where Nadella and Activision’s CEO Bobby Kotick testified. They stood firm, arguing that their partnership would not cast a dark shadow over the competition in the console and subscription-based games market.

Nadella, born in India and now at the helm of a tech behemoth, pledged with all certainty that ‘Call of Duty’ wouldn’t be cut off from Sony’s gaming platforms. In line with this, Microsoft Gaming head Phil Spencer, in a vow given under oath, also promised not to deny PS consoles access to the title.

The two tech heavyweights worked to clear the air and fears that were swirling around. Nadella, on a Wednesday court date, stated that Microsoft had no reason to push Sony’s PS out in the cold in a bid to sell more Xbox consoles.

He pointed out that such a move would not make economic or strategic sense.

According to Bloomberg, these solemn vows were given to US District Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley. She now holds the weighty task of deciding whether to stall the Microsoft deal. A deadline of July 18 hangs over the decision, while the FTC’s legal battle against this groundbreaking transaction unfolds.
