Call of Duty Will Return to Nintendo Consoles After 10-year Absence

It's happened - Nintendo has signed a 10-year contract with Microsoft, which obliges the giant to release the latest installments of the Call of Duty series on Japanese company's platforms. This return after a decade of absence, however, is all roses.

Microsoft is not stopping at promises. In December, the giant unveiled a 10-year guarantee plan, offering to commit to releasing the latest Call of Duty games on consoles from two leading manufacturers: Sony and Nintendo. The latter company has already signed the agreement, Microsoft's vice president announced it on Twitter.

The statement lacks information on specific platforms, but it's safe to assume that the latest installments of Call of Duty will make its way to Switch, and later to future Nintendo consoles as well. Will this involve significant cuts in visual quality on the Japanese handheld? Users in the comments took advantage of the situation to recall the release of CoD: Modern Warfare 3, which looked noticeably worse on the Nintendo Wii, compared to other releases.

The latest installment of Call of Duty released on Nintendo consoles was CoD: Ghosts from 2013. The Wii U console, on which the game was released, ultimately turned out to be a financial failure, and Activision lost interest in Nintendo's devices. According to the latest rumors, the Japanese are confident and plan to increase production of Switch in 2023. Time will tell what effect this will have on the fate of the latest installment of Call of Duty on this console. We are also curious to see how it will perform.
