Activision Blizzard Will Continue To Make PlayStation Games


Activision Blizzard plans to continue developing games for PlayStation consoles, if Microsoft’s acquisition of the company is approved by regulators. The information was released today (18) after the announcement of what is the largest transaction in the history of the video game industry.

According to Bloomberg journalists Dina Bass and Nate Lanxon, sources inside the owner of franchises such as Overwatch and Warcraft have revealed that the brand should not make all its games exclusive to Xbox.

On the other hand, there is, yes, confirmation that some content will be released only for Microsoft video games.

The information makes commercial sense, as productions like Call of Duty, for example, sell very well on PlayStation. According to the Games Industry website, Call of Duty: Vanguard was the 2nd best-selling game in the UK in 2021, with most of the copies going to Sony consoles.

Because of this, a decision to primarily make the major franchises Xbox-exclusive would potentially represent a loss of money for Microsoft.
