The Call of Duty franchise has been in the news lately, especially following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft. In addition, players are impatiently awaiting the next installment of the license, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, due to land on October 28. But that’s not all.
Recently, during this year’s WSJ Live, Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft, spoke about the Call of Duty franchise, and more specifically about its availability on different gaming platforms. As reported by journalist Tom Warren of The Verge, Phil Spencer said: “[…] I would like the [Call of Duty license] to see on Nintendo Switch, I would like to see the game playable on different screens […] ”. And added, then: “ Our intention is to treat Call of Duty like Minecraft ”.
