Call of Duty Heating Up on Nintendo Platforms: Microsoft’s Plan

It has been nearly ten years since a full Call of Duty experience was released on a Nintendo platform. In 2013, Call of Duty: Ghosts made its debut on the Wii U, but the franchise never returned after that miserable reception.

However, this situation could be changing very soon. On Twitter, Phil Spencer revealed that Microsoft plans to enter into a ten-year deal with Activision Blizzard King if the acquisition-merger goes ahead as expected. This would entail bringing Call of Duty to Nintendo platforms.

In recent years, a growing number of blockbuster games have been making their way to the Nintendo Switch platform. As franchises like The Witcher 3, Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed, and even Grand Theft Auto make their way to the system, it has allowed the Nintendo ecosystem to become more accepting of adult games.

“Phil Spencer spoke of a grand plan,” he said, aiming to introduce Call of Duty to as many gamers as possible. At first, this may seem like a bizarre pledge, considering that first-person shooter franchises typically do not perform well on Nintendo platforms or handheld devices. However, as we’ve seen with some larger franchises making their way to the Nintendo Switch platform, it is possible that a similar approach could work.

One potential solution to make this dream come true is introducing a cloud-based system where users stream Call of Duty, enabling them to play at higher resolutions while being hindered by the streaming requirement.

A landmark release in 2023 could be a massive open-world Call of Duty map being ported to a mobile platform, and if it can work for mobile devices, there’s no reason why it cannot happen for the Nintendo Switch as well.
