Ubisoft has announced a landmark agreement that will grant the company cloud streaming rights to Activision Blizzard's portfolio, including games like Call of Duty. The agreement will take effect following Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard and covers the current catalog as well as new titles launching in the next 15 years.

Under this deal, the games will be available on Ubisoft's subscription service, Ubisoft+, and the company will have the ability to license them to other cloud gaming companies, service providers, and console makers. Subscribers to Ubisoft+ Multi Access will have the ability to play and stream Activision Blizzard games across various platforms such as PC, Xbox consoles, Amazon Luna, and PlayStation through Ubisoft+ Classics.

The move aligns with the broader trend in the industry towards cloud gaming, allowing content to be accessible on a wide array of devices. Ubisoft's Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development, Chris Early, emphasized the company's commitment to providing amazing experiences to players, regardless of where they choose to play. He also touted Ubisoft's extensive online services and distribution ecosystem as one of the most complete in the gaming industry.

This agreement represents a significant step in expanding the availability of Activision Blizzard's games and highlights Ubisoft's strategic efforts to leverage cloud technology. Further details about how and when the Activision Blizzard titles will be integrated into Ubisoft+ and other cloud gaming platforms are expected to be announced in the future. Fans and subscribers are encouraged to stay tuned to Ubisoft's official news channels for updates.
