In his statement, Microsoft President Brad Smith said, “This is just part of our commitment to bring Xbox games and Activision titles like Call of Duty to more players on more platforms.”

Microsoft and PlayStation were also negotiating a deal for Call of Duty as Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer stated that he wanted Sony PlayStation to have Call of Duty remain on PlayStation for three years after the current agreement between Activision and Sony ends.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan said that the initial offer from Microsoft was not good enough and was declined by Sony. Since then, the negotiations have been halted.
