Microsoft has made a 10-year commitment to bringing the “Call of Duty” game title to Nintendo platforms, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer said in a post on Twitter on Wednesday.
The agreement brings Activision Blizzard’s popular first-person shooter series to Nintendo game consoles 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 as people spend more time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
