Microsoft has entered into a 10-year commitment to bring gaming title “Call of Duty” to Nintendo platforms, Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming, said in a post on Twitter on Wednesday.
The settlement will also bring the popular first-person shooter series from Activision Blizzard to a Nintendo game console for the first time.
Nintendo said Microsoft’s announcement was true but declined to comment further.
The announcement comes after Microsoft’s planned $69 billion acquisition of the “Call of Duty” maker raised concerns among regulators that the deal could stifle competition.
Microsoft competes with Sony Group Corp and Nintendo in the global video game industry, which has seen strong growth in recent years with people spending more time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
