Microsoft Shows Frustration As Sony Fails To Respond To 10-Year Call Of Duty Offer

Earlier today, Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed the news that a 10-year commitment has been agreed to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo (and Steam) following Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but as of right now, we still haven't heard about what's happening with Sony and PlayStation.

Microsoft has stated on numerous occasions that a 10-year offer for Call of Duty on PlayStation has been submitted to Sony, but it sounds like there's been no proper response about this as of yet.

Here's what Microsoft president Brad Smith had to say about it earlier today:

"Our acquisition will bring Call of Duty to more gamers and more platforms than ever before. That's good for competition and good for consumers. Thank you Nintendo. Any day Sony wants to sit down and talk, we'll be happy to hammer out a 10-year deal for PlayStation as well."

Phil Spencer has been discussing the matter today too, telling Bloomberg the following:

“From where we sit, it’s clear they’re spending more time with the regulators than they are with us to try and get this deal done.”

Spencer highlighted to the outlet that Sony has been the "one game industry participant that’s really been raising all the objections", but also stated that Microsoft has "a pretty good idea of how to build a win-win relationship with Nintendo and frankly Sony.”

We're assuming Sony will have something to say eventually about this offer, but as of right now, everything appears to be pretty silent. According to Bloomberg, Microsoft is set to meet with the FTC today to make its "final case" in support of the Activision Blizzard acquisition, so we'll keep an eye on any further developments throughout the week.
