Microsoft has reportedly offered Sony Call of Duty for PlayStation Plus, should the Activision Blizzard takeover be completed.
In the latest twist in the tale of Microsoft’s proposed $68.7 billion takeover of Activision Blizzard, the tech giant has apparently offered Sony the option to add Call of Duty as part of its PS Plus subscription service.
Could Call of Duty come to PlayStation Plus?
According to sources of Bloomberg (thanks Eurogamer), as part of negotiations to convince market regulators and to get Sony on board, this sweetener was offered as part of the deal.
It is claimed that this part of the deal was offered last month in conjunction with a 10-year proposal to ensure that Call of Duty remains on PlayStation for the foreseeable future.
If reports of this deal are true, you’d think that this would be a tempting offer for Sony, along with the 10-year proposal that was also taken to Nintendo. While PS Plus changes its offerings on a rotating monthly basis, this could also be a great benefit for subscribers of Sony’s service.
If you subscribe to PlayStation Plus and as long as you add an Essential tier game to your library, you could potentially keep that game forever. That’s as long as your subscription remains active. However, even if you unsubscribe and then subscribe later, you’ll still gain access to that game.
Which game was offered to PlayStation Plus?
At this time, details on which Call of Duty game was offered to PlayStation Plus are unknown. It’s unlikely that it would be the 2022 Modern Warfare 2 reboot. However, perhaps any game post-Black Ops 4 would be a welcomed addition. That being said, classic CoD games would likely be welcomed by fans.
