The Japanese manufacturer has been cooperating with Activision for years, providing PS5 and PS4 users with a lot of additional content. In view of the recent reports on the acquisition of the company, further negotiations are questionable. A spokesman for Sony commented on the situation.
The acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft is an event that will undoubtedly affect the entire gaming industry. Phil Spencer has already announced that we can count on enriching the Xbox Game Pass offer and creating exclusive productions, but what about the other commitments of the developers purchased? Already on the day of the announcement , the Bloomberg editorial office informed that the Americans could continue creating positions for PlayStation consoles. The whole situation lacked a comment from representatives of the Japanese company, which has repeatedly collaborated with the creators of the Call of Duty series, offering a number of additions to its community.
We did not have to wait long for the official message from the Sony representative to appear. The Wall Street Journal released a spokesperson’s message mentioning the current deals.
“We expect Microsoft to adhere to their contractual agreements and continue to ensure that Activision games are multi-platform.”
The Japanese corporation can be sure that the Americans will abide by the earlier arrangements – a few months ago, when taking over Bethesda, we witnessed similar analyzes . Deathloop, however, made its debut on PS5, and soon PlayStation players will be able to enter the world of GhostWire: Tokyo. One-year exclusivity is guaranteed before joining the Microsoft Gaming family.
How will it be with the productions available on PS5 and PS4? Currently, we can only assume that some of the titles will go only to Xbox and PC, but the decisive vote is for the owners of the Xbox, with Phil Spencer at the helm. Remember that such long-awaited titles as Starfield or Redfall will only go to Microsoft’s hardware.
