Sony Speaks Out Against Activision Blizzard Deal

Sony Speaks Out Against Activision Blizzard Deal

It's bizarre to think that the biggest deal in gaming history happened this week. Beyond the immediate excitement of its announcement, it's still clear that the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Xbox is a huge deal, and is going to have an impact on the gaming industry that we haven't seen in some time.

While the spotlight is now on Xbox, the deal has a lot of people thinking - what's next for PlayStation now? Well, Sony has spoken out - and those behind the gaming giant don't seem best pleased.

Sony Responds To Xbox's Activision Blizzard Deal

 

We finally have word from Sony about the Xbox and Activision Blizzard deal, and though they haven't said much, their statement is absolutely loaded. Well, would you be happy that your biggest rival became a powerhouse of the industry? 

A Sony spokesperson sat with the Wall Street Journal on January 20 and offered a statement on their feelings about the historic deal. "We expect that Microsoft will abide by contractual agreements and continue to ensure Activision games are multiplatform," it reads. Oof.

It looks like PlayStation isn't pretty fuming about this deal, and is now worried that some upcoming games that were once slated to arrive on PlayStation consoles could become exclusive to Xbox Series consoles.

Sony's may not be particularly happy - but realistically, which games under the Activision Blizzard wing wouldn't be exclusive to Xbox?

Which Activision Blizzard Games May Still Go To PlayStation?

Though release dates are up in the air, as the games have already seen reveals, it's thought that Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 will still be coming to PlayStation consoles - but it's unclear if this is what Sony is talking about, as it could still be referring to games that are currently unannounced.

Of course, Xbox might sweeten the pot for consumers by sending them to Game Pass on day one - but that remains to be seen. We're also asking what on Earth is going on with Call of Duty

This Activision Blizzard deal is suitably massive, and it seems Sony knows it thanks to the fact it's just lost $20 billion overnight. Who knows what this acquisition could mean for PlayStation, but one thing's for sure. We're dead excited to see it.
