Microsoft has regularly said that it is committed to making Xbox games more accessible to gamers around the world, and it seems to be proving that today with the announcement of two huge deals that involve Nintendo and NVIDIA. Executives that include Phil Spencer have confirmed that Microsoft has signed 10-year contracts with Nintendo and NVIDIA that will ensure Xbox and Activision games, including the latest Call of Duty titles, will be available to play on Nintendo systems and/or streamed via NVIDIA’s cloud gaming service, GeForce NOW. Microsoft clarified that new Call of Duty games will reach Nintendo gamers on the same day as Xbox, with full feature and content parity.

From a Phil Spencer tweet:

We have signed a 10 year agreement with NVIDIA that will allow GeForce NOW players to stream Xbox PC games as well as Activision Blizzard PC titles, including COD, following the acquisition. We´re committed to bringing more games to more people – however they choose to play.

From a Brad Smith tweet:

We’ve now signed a binding 10-year contract to bring Xbox games to Nintendo’s gamers. This is just part of our commitment to bring Xbox games and Activision titles like Call of Duty to more players on more platforms.
