Microsoft signs 10 year deal with Nintendo

It seems like Microsoft is making headlines across the world as they continue to do business with other gaming entities. This past year Microsoft had bought out Activision Blizzard for $69 billion a company that is responsible for the highly famous Call of Duty series. Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard has been meet with heavy scrutiny from the likes of the European Union and the Federal Trade Commission for potentially violating anti-trust laws. There are many people who believe that Microsoft’s latest move which involves the company entering a ten year deal with Nintendo & Nvidia; was done to convince the EU that were not trying to monopolize anything. That being said it looks like we are going to be seeing several classic and new Call of Duty games on the Nintendo Switch between now and 2033. Before, the 10 year deal with Nintendo and Nvidia was made the FTC and almost everyone else was under the impression that Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard was “unfair” to its competitors especially Sony a company that responded by purchasing Bungie around the Summer 2022. Regardless, of what Microsoft’s true motive behind their ten year deal with Nintendo is its nice to know that we will be getting more first person person shooter games on Nintendo consoles in the future.
