Yes, you heard it right, Bobby Kotick admits that he made a mistake & regrets not bringing Call of Duty to Nintendo Switch. This was stated during the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) trial regarding the Microsoft acquisition of Activision. He also considered not porting the game as a “Bad Judgement” just because of underestimating the Switch prototype. It seems Kotick didn’t expect the Switch console to become this popular but clearly, he was wrong. As Nintendo Switch is a success and claims the title of being the third best-selling console of all time. Let’s see what else Activision’s CEO, Bobby Kotick states regarding the COD being on Switch and what can we expect from it in the future.
Not Bringing Call of Duty to Switch Was a Bad Judgment, Bobby Kotick Regrets
The FTC vs Microsoft hearing revealed various untold truths that include Activision CEO’s regretting the decisions he made in the past. Bobby Kotick not only regrets not putting Call of Duty on Switch but would also like to undo his mistake. He states “We’d likely consider the porting COD game for Next-Gen Nintendo’s, depending on the specs of the console”. Apart from that, before the acquisition was blocked even Microsoft had the same plans. And promised Nintendo’s customers by signing a 10-year legal agreement of bringing COD to the Switch. But unfortunately, it won’t be happening any time soon.

However, it’s worth noting that, Bobby Kotick used to think of the Wii as the most extraordinary video game system in the past. And that’s one of the reasons why he never thought that the Switch will ever be a success. On the other hand, now Kotick will be happy to port the game for the Next generation Nintendo consoles once they have the specs they need, which they don’t at present. But let’s not put our hopes down and pray it happens soon.
And that summarizes the whole thing about Call of Duty not being on Switch, which Bobby Kotick still regrets. Other than this, there are also some rumors going on about Microsoft planning to make Activision games Xbox Exclusive.
