A problem that could throw the last agreement between Microsoft and Nintendo to the ground.
The purchase of Activision Blizzard was one of the great news bombings of the past year, and without a doubt the one that had the greatest impact in our sector. You can look at this from many perspectives, such as looking at the money that’s going to be spent, or the amount of trouble it’s causing Microsoft. If you are off the hook, it is logical that you do not know what we are talking about, but if you follow all this news, you probably know that certain antitrust authorities They are giving a lot of problems to the American company.
If we go into detail, the most popular question, that is, why Microsoft is so interested in acquiring Activision, many names will come out. Between these, The one that interests us today is that of Call of Dutythe renowned war franchise, which would become the property of Microsoft, if the purchase is carried out, and which has given us, over the years, some of the best shooters in history.
Even so, this is still one of the biggest headaches when the purchase is carried out. For this reason, to dispel doubts, a few days ago, Microsoft announced an agreement with Nintendo in style, with which they would bring Call of Duty to their platforms. Now, dark clouds are hanging over this dealand then we tell you why.
Call of Duty might be impossible to bring to Nintendo Switch
Specifically, it has been the CMA, that is, the antitrust authority of the United Kingdom who, through a report, has explained that They believe the task of launching modern Call of Duty on Nintendo Switch is very difficult.
In this report, they clarify that It wouldn’t just be a hardware problem., which would prevent it from competing on equal opportunities with the rest of the platforms, but also would have many problems with the storage of this console. This, of course, does not mean that it is impossible to do, but the truth is that these arguments sound quite convincing, so much so that it is something that all, or almost all of us, thought when the announcement was made official.
