Microsoft President Brad Smith announced that their company has signed a 10-year binding contract to bring Xbox and Activision titles like Call of Duty to Nintendo consoles.
The announcement comes as Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard is looked into by regulators everywhere, to see what this could mean for the console and cloud gaming markets.
“Microsoft and Nintendo have now negotiated and signed a binding 10-year legal agreement to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo players,” the statement reads. “The same day as Xbox, with full feature and content parity — so they can experience Call of Duty just as Xbox and Playstation gamers enjoy Call of Duty.”
“We are committed to providing long-term equal access to Call of Duty to other gaming platforms, bringing more choice to more players and more competition to the gaming market.”
I guess we have to wait and see how this works out. If more game titles are coming to the Nintendo Switch, I don’t see how this could be a bad thing for gamers.

Of course, games on the Nintendo Switch are often times more expensive than their counterparts on other platforms, so again, we have to wait and see how this pans out, and whether or not console gamers will embrace this.
