In an attempt to reach what appears to be an agreement to calm the waters, Microsoft has officially announced that it has signed a 10-year agreement with Nintendo to bring Call of Duty to the platforms of the Japanese brand. This is the first official statement that formalizes the arrival of the famous war saga on Nintendo consoles, so very soon many will stop saying “Nintendo doesn’t have Call of Duty.”
¿Jugar a Call of Duty en Switch?
It sounds like a fantasy, but it will finally come true. Microsoft has published a statement in which they are happy to announce that they have reached an agreement with Nintendo to sign a 10 year old opponent with which they will commit to bring upcoming Call of Duty games to Nintendo platforms the same day it launches on Xbox.
This is incredible news for many, since this game was one of the great absences in the Nintendo catalog, especially now with the Switch generation, which had become more adult and aggressive with quite flashy titles.

Ok, but what Call of Duty exactly?
It’s okay to promise that they’re going to launch a Call of Duty para Nintendo Switch, but this play is already known to us with FIFA. On Switch, the version of FIFA that exists for the Nintendo console is nothing more than an older version with updated templates, and none of the new technology implemented in the game makes it to the Nintendo handheld version.
But this does not seem to be what will happen with Call of Duty, since in the Microsoft statement it has been specified that in addition to arriving the same launch day as on Xboxthe game will have all the functions and the same equality in content which can be found by Xbox and PlayStation gamers. Excellent news.
Softening the ground?
We already know that Microsoft is having it especially difficult for the different regulatory bodies to officially validate the purchase of Activision. Many competing companies point out that the move could cause a monopoly problem, something that Microsoft has flatly denied on many occasions, ensuring that Call of Duty is present on various platforms.
Perhaps, for that reason, they have decided to reach an agreement with Nintendo and make it public immediately, showing that Activision’s most important IP will continue to be available for other platforms without restrictions of any kind.
