Nintendo and Microsoft sign a deal to bring Call of Duty to Switch
Nintendo and Microsoft have signed a ten-year deal to bring more Call of Duty games to Nintendo Switch. For years, Nintendo owners have been unable to play the massively popular shooter series, with no presence on the platform, but now it’s only a matter of time until you can pull out a pistol and get dangerous in some online deathmatches.
Xbox president Brad Smith made the announcement on Twitter, sharing a graphic that details the plans to bring Call of Duty titles to Switch. The post reveals that not only are CoD titles arriving on the Nintendo platform, but they’ll release the same day, with the same amount of content as the Xbox and PlayStation versions. This is a marked difference from the FIFA approach, with the Switch version obviously sub-par compared to console equivalents.
There’s hope that more Microsoft titles might come to Nintendo outside of Call of Duty, too. The copy above Smith’s Twitter post reads “we’ve now signed a binding 10-year contract to bring Xbox games to Nintendo’s gamers. This is just part of our commitment to bring Xbox games and Activision titles like Call of Duty to more players on more platforms.” Looking at the first part alone, it’s possible more titles might make the platform leap in the future. Pentiment, please?
