Stephen Totilo from Axios has revealed on Twitter that Sony has confirmed to him that the deal with Microsoft is for 10 years.
From Day One of this acquisition, we’ve been committed to addressing the concerns of regulators, platform and game developers, and consumers. Even after we cross the finish line for this deal’s approval, we will remain focused on ensuring that Call of Duty remains available on more platforms and for more consumers than ever before.
What isn’t known right now is just how long Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation formats following the acquisition, although it does at least ensure that one of the biggest gaming franchises under the deal will remain on Sony formats.
Microsoft last week won its court battle with the FTC, which means it is now free to buy Activision Blizzard in the US.
