After the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft there is a question that everyone has in mind: will the studio’s games now be exclusive to Xbox? Something similar happened with the purchase of ZeniMax, Bethesda and all its developers, so many believe that Microsoft will opt for a similar solution.
Activision Blizzard is one of the largest and most important companies in the industry, so it has a presence on all consoles, on PC and even a more than solid business in the mobile device market. So the issue of exclusivity is important.
While there’s no word yet on what the strategy will be, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, and other sources have already talked about what will happen to current and future Activision Blizzard games on all platforms.

What will happen to Activision Blizzard games? Will they be exclusive to Xbox?
Officially, Phil Spencer recognized the reach of Activision Blizzard games in the industry, so he knows that millions of users from all platforms enjoy them. Thus, he promised to maintain active support for all communities.
This means that current Activision Blizzard games will have the same support as they have before, regardless of whether they are on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo or PC. For now, the manager did not comment on the exclusivity of content.
“Activision Blizzard games are enjoyed on a variety of platforms, and we plan to continue to support those communities in the future,” he said.
What about future studio releases? In a report of Bloomberg It is mentioned that Microsoft plans to keep Activision Blizzard games coming to other systems, including PlayStation consoles. However, there is one detail that stands out.
It is mentioned that among his plans is also to maintain certain content and make it exclusive to Xbox. This information does not come from Microsoft, as it came to light thanks to an anonymous person who is familiar with the company’s strategy.
The idea is not far-fetched, since Microsoft took advantage of the purchase of ZeniMax and its other studios to nurture the Xbox ecosystem with exclusive games, a plan that is still being built and that in recent months saw its first great results.
So, everything indicates that Microsoft will also take advantage of the popular Activision Blizzard franchises to have more exclusive games on Xbox. However, for now nothing has been said officially, so it is best to wait to have more information about it.
