This type of special treatment for the Call of Duty franchise is provided by Sony to Activision, but it may not last forever.
Microsoft is actively pursuing the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, along with all of its creators and brands, including Call of Duty.
Microsoft has stated that it will continue to release Call of Duty titles for the PlayStation if its acquisition bid is successful, although it is unclear how Call of Duty will function on the PlayStation should the sale go through.
It was recently rumoured that Microsoft might provide Sony with a 10-year licencing agreement as a concession to authorities in order to expedite the merger.
