Yay! 68%
Nay! 32%

Won't say become an exclusive because it'll remain on PC.

Emotionally, I want to say yes screw sony, but logically speaking...$70 billion is $70 billion.

Yes, Microsoft doesn’t spend that much money to continue to feed Sony. They spend that amount to get gamers to leave Sony and come to the much superior offer.

I think CoD is a Minecraft situation, I don't see them making such an established franchise exclusive especially Warzone.

Although they will have CoD day one on Game Pass which will be a pretty big deal.

After their marketing contract with Sony ends, yes. Just like if Sony bought COD, they wouldn't put it on Xbox. It's now a first party Xbox exclusive.

It will be the same situation with Bethesda. All existing games stay and remain supported. All future games go exclusive.

and they will probably add exclusive content to the xbox versions, skins, mods etc. I just don't see MS leaving that sweet playstation revenue on the table.

They'd piss people off if they suddenly shut down access and removed Warzone...

All that talk about cross play love and then they say "sorry we don't want you if you're on that platform" would not go over well, but if they bought it they can do whatever they want.

If they remove anything it will be new iterations to existing IP's .. so the new yearly COD multiplayer (not warzone)... I think their F2P games will still be on all platforms (like Minecraft is) because the money is in MTX in those games not in game sales

I too suspect that will happen as well.

Also, what about Destiny series itself? Aside from Destiny being the discount Halo, I'll be surprised if those franchises do a crossover lol.

I'd say it's a dumb move, but Sony can't seem to make enough hardware so not selling it on PS might not have a significant effect on the franchise revenue.

Destiny's deal with Activision ended a while ago. The IP belongs to Bungie.

they are still separate entities until the acquisition is finalized in 2023 so they technically can not do anything about the structure at Activision until the deal closes

Most likely they do not have a choice. At least currently.

Be some waffle where it's an amicable departure, with Bobby living out the rest of his life snorting cocaine off hookers backs in some seedy country.

To be replaced by another piece of shit, that draws less attention.

Very exciting.

yeah..I wonder if Sony would end up doing a deal with Bungie. I don't want them to buy them though.

@davillain: Its kind of hard for me to believe they'd make cod exclusive...because of how much money they spent.

But what the hell do I know...their value of money is different from ours

Most likely yes. These acquisitions are not friendly acquisitions and we have to start viewing it with the same expectations when Sony and Nintendo or any other company acquires another.

Probably, unless they broker some kind of deal with Sony to perhaps allow Game Pass on their systems.

This years COD may still come to the PS5 due to contractual obligations. After that...unlikely. Not unless Sony allow gamepass on Playstation. MS have been very clear on the criteria needed to get their games on a certain device/platform.

There is no reason to think Activision games will be treated any differently than bethesda games for example.

Pretty sure MS isn't going to let Sony have it just to be nice.

You think Nintendo could be a threat? I don't really have a clue, have they acquired any bigger studios lately? I can imagine Nintendo to just keep on doing their own thing, maybe buy some studios that already do mostly Nintendo stuff anyway, while letting Sony bust their balls for some kind of response to MS.

MS now own crash bandicoot, Spyro, THPS, Warcraft, Diablo, COD. It's pretty wild. Bigger than Bethesda

It might be bigger than Bethesda, but Bethesda has way better games. Other than Diablo4, a game i wanted to try on launch, there is not a single game/franchise that i care from Activision.

Of course it will. People in sw need to understand this is the next competition. Its the ecosystem competition. Technically the game will be available every where just not on sony's hardware. Heck you can still play the game with a playstation controller if you like lol. Unce phill has been ahead of the game all this time.

Sony fans said the same thing about the Bethesda deal. The Zenimax games are all exclusive except games already on the Playstation like Elder scrolls Online and Minecraft or games that already had a contract before the deal was done. Hellblade and Outter Worlds were both on the Playsation but after the deals the sequel for both are exclusive.

MS did not spend the money to put games on the Playstation just like MS did not when it came to Zenimax.

@CanYouDiglt: MS will do what is best for MS. And that includes exclusivity but as we have seen exclusivity is not an infinite thing. If they can get all they can from one of their exclusives but still see money to be made from throwing crumbs then they will. They do not care about System Wars but what makes them the most money. That is the only good thing about MS, there unashamed greed, for PS/Nintendo users.

You people have sony phones and smart tvs dont you lol. Kidding aside what I mean is exactly what uncle phil always says. Something about allowing customers to play the games they wanna play, where they wanna play them. With pc and cloud xbox is fulfilling that promise bla bla bla.

This is the most obvious answer so it is the most likely outcome.

COD won't be Minecraft situation. Annual COD's won't be on PlayStation once when acquisition if FULLY done. Warzone will remain on PS, though.
