The other day, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said new Call of Duty games will stay on PlayStation platforms for “at the very least several more years” after Activision’s current contract with Sony expires. Now, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan is calling Spencer’s offer “inadequate”.

In a statement to GamesIndustry.biz, Ryan said he didn’t plan to comment on the business enterprise discussion until Spencer brought it in to the “public forum.”

“Microsoft has only offered for Call of Duty to stay on PlayStation for 3 years following the current agreement between Activision and Sony ends,” Ryan said, “After almost 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their proposal was inadequate on many levels and didn’t take account of the effect on our gamers. You want to guarantee PlayStation gamers continue steadily to have the best quality Call of Duty experience, and Microsofts proposal undermines this principle.”

Microsoft Acquires Activision Blizzard: The Story UP TO NOW

Spencer recently confirmed that future Call of Duty entries will join Xbox Game Pass, but launch on PlayStation on a single day. There is no timetable yet for which upcoming Activision Blizzard games can look on Game Pass following Xbox’s $68.7 billion acquisition of the business. Earlier this season, there have been reports that Activision wanted to place Call of Duty 2022 (that is now confirmed to be Modern Warfare 2), Call of Duty 2023, and Warzone 2 on PlayStation. From then on, though, the near future is unclear.

This year’s Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2, is defined to launch on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, as usual. However, the decision of Duty series will seemingly visit a shakeup after 2022, as 2023 will reportedly function as first year in nearly 2 decades with out a new Call of Duty.
