Call Of Duty will start coming to Nintendo consoles, says Microsoft

Call Of Duty will start coming to Nintendo consoles, says Microsoft

The series has been missing from Nintendo consoles for nearly a decade.

As a result of the Activision acquisition, Microsoft confirmed that Call of Duty will be available on Nintendo consoles for the next 10 years.

Only in October was Phil Spencer saying that Call of Duty should be accommodated on the small but mighty console. "I'd love to see the game playable on many different screens. Our intent is to treat Call of Duty like Minecraft," the Xbox boss told The Verge. Of course, Spencer means something more like the ubiquity and accessibility of Minecraft over the ability to build the seven wonders of the world in diamond, and given the sheer success of the series, it's an obvious golden goose.

Modern Warfare II's realism is one of its standout qualities, so here's Lionel Messi as a playable Operator:

As gaming is only going to get more and more expensive, the inclusion of Call of Duty on Nintendo consoles will be welcome news. The last game to make it onto a Nintendo console was Call of Duty: Ghosts in 2013 and when you lay it out like that, it is shocking that this crowd has gone without the series for that long.

The altercations over the acquisition continue to occur with Sony being absolutely adamant that this agreement will spell nothing but trouble for the industry. Microsoft on the other hand is on the defensive, stating that Activision Blizzard doesn't make any "must-have" games and that Sony's own first-party roster is of a higher quality than its own. The proceedings are imagined to come to a close early next year, should the Federal Trade Commission approve the acquisition without a hitch. I find this difficult to believe though.
