Call of Duty games coming to Switch as part of 10-year Microsoft and Nintendo partnership

It's already a promising start to the year for Nintendo fans.

One of the hardest decisions you have to make as a gamer is whether to buy a Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation console. But that might be a decision of the past now that Xbox games—specifically starting with Call of Duty—are coming to Nintendo consoles as a part of the latest Microsoft and Nintendo collaboration.

On Feb. 21, Microsoft’s vice chair and president Brad Smith announced that Microsoft and Nintendo have reached a 10-year agreement to bring CoD to Nintendo consoles so that Nintendo fans can enjoy the popular franchise and other games that were formerly exclusive to Xbox.

“Microsoft and Nintendo have now negotiated and signed a binding 10-year legal agreement to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo players—the same day as Xbox, with full feature and content parity—so they can experience Call of Duty just as Xbox and PlayStation gamers enjoy Call of Duty,” Microsoft’s statement reads.

The vice chair explained on Twitter how this decision is intended to give gamers more freedom and options when choosing their gaming platform. This should also freshen up the gaming market since there will be more competition. 

Smith also hinted that there are more similar changes to come in the near future. “This is just part of our commitment to bring Xbox games and Activision titles like Call of Duty to more players on more platforms,” he said.

As we wait for Microsoft and Nintendo to start rolling out games, fans should learn more details about the titles that are making their way to the Switch.
