Earlier, Microsoft, which will acquire Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion, promised to honor the terms of the publisher’s already-closed deals with Sony and expressed a desire to do so “Save Call of Duty to PlayStation”.

According to Schreier, the current deal includes the release of three upcoming Call of Duty games on PlayStation consoles:

  • 2022 Call of Duty by Infinity Ward (believed to be the new Modern Warfare);
  • Call of Duty 2023 by Treyarch;
  • a new iteration of Call of Duty: Warzone, also scheduled for release in 2023.

Bloomberg whistleblowers add that further plans for Call of Duty are still unclear. Activision Blizzard executives were reportedly discussing moving the series of annual releases away.

Recall that after acquiring ZeniMax Media (Bethesda) in 2020, Microsoft has fulfilled the previously signed deals, but no more: both Starfield and Redfall will only be released on PC and Xbox consoles.
