Pure Xbox

Last week, Xbox boss Phil Spencer mentioned how Microsoft intended to treat Call of Duty like Minecraft when asked about the series' future post-acquisition.

Now, during an interview with the 'Same Brain' YouTube channel, Phil has reiterated his comments about making Call of Duty as accessible as possible - in a very brief comment touching on the Activision deal. Here's exactly what he had to say, noting how "as long as there is a PlayStation out there", Call of Duty will be on it:

"Yeah, we're not taking Call of Duty from PlayStation... that's not our intent, our intent is not to do that, and as long as there is a PlayStation out there to ship to, our intent is that we continue to ship Call of Duty on PlayStation similar to what we've done with Minecraft, since we've owned that."

"We've expanded the places where people can play [Minecraft] we haven't like reduced the places, and it's been good, it's been good for the Minecraft community in my opinion and I want to do the same as we think about where Call of Duty can go."

As for Xbox players, Phil says the "biggest addition" will be some more "great games" coming to Game Pass. In saying this, there will also reportedly be some restrictions due to Sony's existing agreements with Activision Blizzard.

In his original comments to The Wall Street Journal last week, Phil said he would love to see Call of Duty made available on as many different screens as possible - using Minecraft as an existing example, and also name-dropping the Switch.
