Sony CEO Jim Ryan has recently made a new statement in regards to Xbox’s offer for Call of Duty.
Ryan spoke recently to the media outlet GamesIndustry.biz discussing a lot of things including the recent controversial letter that Microsoft sent to Sony. Its contents were revealed to be a promise that the franchise Call of duty would still remain on PlayStation for several more years.
This offer by Microsoft is reportedly beyond any current agreements between Sony and Activision Blizzard. Microsoft also thinks this is well beyond typical gaming industry agreements. Sony thinks otherwise though and its CEO says it all. He thinks Microsoft does not know what the offer would impact the gamers.
“I hadn’t intended to comment on what I understood to be a private business discussion, but I feel the need to set the record straight because Phil Spencer brought this into the public forum,” Ryan stated.
“Microsoft has only offered for Call of Duty to remain on PlayStation for three years after the current agreement between Activision and Sony ends. After almost 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their proposal was inadequate on many levels and failed to take account of the impact on our gamers. We want to guarantee PlayStation gamers continue to have the highest quality Call of Duty experience, and Microsoft’s proposal undermines this principle.”
Will Sony still accept the offer from Microsoft? Depends on what Ryan would say.
