Even PlayStation are making more of their first-party titles multi-platform.

In addition to PlayStation, Microsoft has also committed to taking similar steps to support Nintendo platforms. This is an intriguing development as it suggests that future titles from Activision Blizzard could potentially make their way onto the Switch eventually.

The next COD game has been confirmed to be headed in development by Infinity Ward. Speculation suggests that COD 2022 will be a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare, which was in many ways, a return to form for the franchise.

There has also been a lot of talk suggesting that Activision might be considering dropping the annual release structure for Call of Duty, but there hasn’t been any official word regarding the subject.

As things stand, it looks like Activision franchises like Call of Duty will continue to be available on the PlayStation. Microsoft’s decision to keep many of their first-party games multi-platform has been received quite well by the fans, but there are still a number of highly-anticipated games tied exclusively to the platform.

Games like Hellblade II: Senua’s Saga and Starfield will be Xbox exclusives, still, but there are plenty of more titles under the Xbox umbrella that will be multi-platform.
