Sony agrees to a Call of Duty deal with Microsoft

Sony has agreed to a Call of Duty deal with Microsoft.

The deal ensures the franchise will remain on PlayStation after the proposed Activision Blizzard acquisition.

Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer confirmed the "binding agreement" with Sony.

The length of the deal, similar to Microsoft's agreements with other cloud providers, is not immediately clear.

The agreement ends a year-long battle between Sony and Microsoft over the Call of Duty franchise.

Microsoft has signed a 10-year deal with Nintendo and other cloud providers.

The terms of the deal between Sony and Microsoft have not been disclosed.

Sony initially resisted signing a Call of Duty deal with Microsoft.

Sony had expressed concerns about Microsoft making Call of Duty exclusive to Xbox or sabotaging the PlayStation versions.

A bombshell email from PlayStation chief Ryan revealed that he wasn't worried about Call of Duty exclusivity and expected it to continue on PlayStation.
