Sony has pronounced itself about the news of the week: the purchase, by Microsoft, from the Activision-Blizzard company. As a Sony spokesman explains Wall Street Journal, Sony expects Microsoft to make sure that the Activision Games remain multiplatform.
We hope that Microsoft will fulfill the contractual conditions and continue making sure that their games are multiplatform, they have been the exact words.
PlayStation has had, the truth, a very fruitful relationship with Activision in recent years, among other things because it is the holder of the marketing rights of the Call of Duty saga.
At the moment, it is not clear what happened with the Activision Games for the future, but the different parts have made it clear that the change, at least, will not be abrupt. By Microsoft, Phil Spencer pointed out that the intention of purchase was not away from the communities from the rest of platforms.!
On the other hand, by Activision Blizzard, the Questions and Answer section published through the website of the Board and Values Commission indicates the following:
We will continue with all the commitments we have even after the purchase, similarly to what happened when Microsoft bought Minecraft, we have no intention of eliminating any content from the platforms in which it already exists.
Whatever Sony’s intentions, the final decision will be from Microsoft, and it is most likely that many of the IP that now belong to it, such as Crash Bandicoot, Spiro or Call of Duty, are exclusive Xbox in some way.
