Activision Blizzard might have formed a Call of Duty studio for Nintendo

The report comes on the heels of promises by Phil Spencer to make Call of Duty available on Nintendo platforms.


Nintendo has worked with Activision Blizzard before to bring Call of Duty to its bespoke gaming platforms. Unfortunately, since 2013's Call of Duty: Ghosts, Nintendo console owners have been left with the short end of the billion-dollar stick as far as Activision's marquee shooter goes. But, it appears that this Call of Duty drought on Nintendo is ending soon.

We're curious to find out how well a Nintendo platform will run a current-gen Call of Duty game.

According to Nintendo enthusiast and content creator, Doctre81, Activision just posted a job listing on LinkedIn for a "Lead UX Designer" for a "New Studio". Although it could be for anything, the fan is speculating that the hired individual could be for a separate studio dedicated to porting Call of Duty games to the Nintendo Switch and future platforms.

n-Space, which previously handled the older Call of Duty ports for Nintendo consoles, closed down in 2016.

Microsoft's Phil Spencer previously promised that it will bring Call of Duty to Nintendo following the company's purchase of Activision Blizzard.

If we're being optimistic, we can presume that the job listing is a good sign that things are going well for the acquisition despite the mounting opposition from the EU, FTC, as well as Nvidia and Google.

Of course, we can't deny that Activision Blizzard could be thinking of porting Call of Duty to the Nintendo Switch or its successor, which is believed to be coming sometime next year.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is expected to receive at least two years' worth of support from Activision Blizzard.

With "only" five employees working in the unnamed Activision Blizzard studio, it's safe to say that it's being formed from the ground up. We'll just have to wait for further developments to find out what exactly the studio is working on and when it will be out.

Speaking of Nintendo, the Switch ended last year as the best-selling console in the United States and it looks like Nintendo wants to go for another year at the top by ramping up production of its latest console.
