Last week, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said new Call of Duty games will remain on the PlayStation platform for “at least another few years” after Activision’s current contract with Sony expires. Now, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan is calling Spencer’s offer “unsatisfactory.”
In a statement to GamesIndustry.bizRyan said he has no intention of commenting on the business discussion until Spencer has put it in a “public forum”.
“Microsoft only offered Call of Duty on PlayStation for three years after the current agreement between Activision and Sony ended,” Ryan said, “After nearly 20 years of Call of Duty on PlayStation, their proposal didn’t fit. on multiple levels and have not been able to account for the impact on our players. We want to ensure PlayStation players continue to have the highest quality Call of Duty experience, and Microsoft’s proposal undermines this principle. “
