Call of Duty on Switch? Microsoft president Brad Smith seems to think it could happen

The past few weeks have been pretty busy in Call of Duty news. We got word that Infinity Ward would be making the next game in the series, and that Microsoft plans to keep the game on PlayStation after the existing agreement expires. But, something we haven’t taken a look at yet is Microsoft’s president, Brad Smith, who gave an interview to CNBC.

Will Call of Duty be an Xbox exclusive? Sony doesn’t seem to think so at this point

Will Call of Duty be an Xbox exclusive? And what about the rest of the Activision Blizzard titles that are now nestled in Microsoft’s growing stable? These are some of the biggest questions gamers are pondering after Microsoft announced it was going to be dishing out the cash equivalent of $68.7 billion to absorb the Activision Blizzard conglomerate earlier this week. After suggesting some of the big Bethesda franchises would soon be locked to its gaming platforms, Microsoft might very well do the same thing with Activision Blizzard’s most popular IP as well. Although, Sony has now taken to the airwaves to offer gamers less-than-confident assurance that won’t be the case. More details below.
