Such a joke. "Sure we'll use this purchase to strong arm the industry and try to grow a monopoly, but our monopoly will cover new markets too!"
I feel like it's not too often you sound mad.  :o

1. i like how this starts out with a declaration of multi-platness love that ends on a very spefic "call of duty will be on playstation".   the MS i know and hate is peaking though here,... everything else is probably going exclusive.   they craft their messages so carefully to sound like one thing but mean another.  i will not believe this statement will extend to things like diablo or doom or wolfenstein or all those many dozens of other franchises that have a long history of multiplate releases.  this statement is only for CoD and only to appease regulatory and tbh,... only extends to the end of the previously signed marketing contracts playstation established with activision for which MS couldn't weasel out of if they wanted to.  

2. @Legend - great post.

This is probably the critical point here, about their messaging.
Focus on the part that's true, ignore the rest.

CoD probably to some extent needs to be on everything. Diablo probably doesn't.

I feel like realistic best case scenario, would be that any new IPs are exclusive, whereas everything else continues on the same platforms.

But chances are even better that it will just be CoD.

"In January, we provided a signed agreement to Sony to guarantee Call of Duty on PlayStation, with feature and content parity, for at least several more years beyond the current Sony contract, an offer that goes well beyond typical gaming industry agreements," says Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer in a statement to The Verge.

Ooof.
On the one hand it sounds like it's quite a ways out, on the other hand, this doesn't sound like CoD will be on PlayStation forever.

No COD on PS6.

Also they could raise the price. If COD is $80 on both Xbox and PlayStation but "free" on gamepass...

Deathloop was pretty fun. Would be happy if Microsoft makes a second one.
