there European Commission Working to ensure that Call of duty It can also be played on other consoles, i.e. Play Stationbased on what was reported by A Tweet from a spokesperson From the supranational body pursuing Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
Tweet comes from Ricardo CardosoVice-President of the European Commission’s Inter-Enterprise Opinion and Awareness Unit, as well as the spokesperson for that and on antitrust matters, who specifically reported that the Commission is working to allow Call of Duty to run on another console” my playstationCardoso himself reported.
The tweet has a somewhat informal tone, as it teases the image being used by the same official EU Contest account which shows two players with wired consoles, which is completely outdated. However, the comment cut and the specific reference to the fact that he was a PlayStation user certainly did not go unnoticed and sparked a lot of controversy in the comments, given the position the person occupies in a supranational body that was called to decide the fate of the acquisition.
what comes disputed By many users in the answers is that the topic of the European Commission’s investigation should be about protecting the market and all users from the potential risks of a monopoly position, not just protecting PlayStation users from the potential shortage of Call of Duty. The fact that he wanted to determine that he was one of those users was immediately targeted for more or less valid criticism.
However, beyond the controversy and tone of the tweet, it clearly appears again assubject of dispute It is basically the need to keep the Call of Duty cross platform, which is supposed to be the focus of the entire discussion. Also given what the European Commission spokesperson reported to the editors of Multiplayer.it during a short circuit, during a really clear and comprehensive intervention, it is very likely that Activision Blizzard will be acquired by Microsoft but only after some special concessions and we can imagine that it might relate to a specific commitment a Keep Call of Duty as a multiplatform series.
However, Microsoft continued to repeat its intention to do on several occasions, also stating that the opposite would be economically counterproductive for the company itself.
