Microsoft will “honor all existing agreements [with Sony Interactive Entertainment]” upon its proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard, as well as its “desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation,” Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer said in a tweet.
“Had good calls this week with leaders at Sony [Interactive Entertainment],” Spencer said. “I confirmed our intent to honor all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard and our desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation. Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship.”
Earlier this week, Microsoft announced its intent to acquire Activision Blizzard in for $68.7 billion. The transaction is expected to close sometime in Microsoft’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2023.
