Today that promise was followed through with a robust new deal that aims to bring Call of Duty games to the Nintendo consoles for the next 10 years.
Microsoft Bringing Call of Duty Back To Nintendo
The deal was signed a few hours ago by Brad Smith, Vice Chair and President of Microsoft. With the commitment of bringing Call of Duty titles to Nintendo’s platforms for the next 10 years.
