Microsoft somehow thinks Nintendo hardware can run Call of Duty for the next 10 years

Xbox CEO Phil Spencer announced on Twitter that Microsoft and Nintendo have reached an agreement to bring Call of Duty titles to Nintendo platforms for a decade after Xbox’s $68.7 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard dollars has been completed. In a subsequent tweet, Spencer added that Call of Duty will continue to release on Steam on the same day and date as the Xbox Store.

Since the announcement of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, there have been multiple reports that the Call of Duty series will be exclusive to Xbox platforms and will also be available on Game Pass services. Most of the debate revolves around PlayStation, as Sony stirs up most of the headlines with statements that Microsoft owns Call of Duty, which could sway gamers’ choice of console, despite multiple assurances from Phil Spencer and other Microsoft executives that the franchise will remain cross-platform.

The biggest question of this Microsoft-Nintendo agreement is how well Switch can handle the power of a game along the lines of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Switch’s ability to handle demanding and high-intensity games has always been questioned. The Call of Duty series is one of the most demanding video game franchises, Nintendo Switch wouldn’t be able to run Warzone 2.0 or Modern Warfare II without significant sacrifices at various points.

However, Phil Spencer didn’t mention which Call of Duty games would be coming to the Nintendo platform as part of the deal in his statement. There is a chance that the previous Call of Duty games will be remastered and re-released on Switch or an upcoming new console from Nintendo. Plus, there’s always a chance that previous Call of Duty games will be released as cloud versions – allowing Nintendo Switch to run many current third-party games, and Xbox is no stranger to pushing these cloud-based services.
