Ubisoft has officially announced its agreement with Activision, giving them the rights to cloud-stream games like Call of Duty from the Activision Blizzard library. The service will come into effect upon the completion of Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, as stated by the official Ubisoft blog post.
This agreement will allow fans to enjoy all of the current Activision Blizzard titles, alongside newly launched IPs (Intellectual Properties) set to release in the next 15 years on the Ubisoft+ platform, following the closing of Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

Ubisoft+ has been a relatively newer platform for gamers when it comes to accessing a subscription-based library. The subscription incorporates a massive list of games from their catalog, from classic titles like Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell franchise to more recent releases like Assassin's Creed Valhalla. With the Activision Blizzard games coming into the lineup, fans will soon be able to enjoy significant titles like Call of Duty, Diablo, and the Warcraft series. Ubisoft+ is available for various platforms, including PC, PS4/PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Amazon Luna, and more.
The Ubisoft+ subscription starts at €14.99/month, roughly $17. Fans will be able to enjoy their favorite Ubisoft games and beyond upon the completion of the Activision Blizzard agreement. According to Ubisoft, with a single subscription to the Ubisoft+ Multi Access, gamers can enjoy their favourite Ubisoft and Activision Blizzard titles on Microsoft and Amazon Luna platforms. PlayStation users will have to enjoy the feature through the Ubisoft+ Classics. Following the subscription, fans are in for a treat with a vast library of games, including the latest launches.
Senior Vice President and Strategic Partnerships & Business Development head for Ubisoft, Chris Early, stated that their main goal is to dedicate their services towards delivering outstanding experiences to players, regardless of their choice of device. With Microsoft recently fixing the Call of Duty servers, including classic titles like Modern Warfare 2 (2009) and Black Ops 2 (2012), the upcoming Ubisoft service will surely bring many fans back into the games from various platforms.
Microsoft selling off Activision's cloud gaming rights to Ubisoft is a massive restructuring of the entire acquisition. President Brad Smith said Ubisoft will compensate Microsoft with a one-off payment for the streaming rights to Activision Blizzard's games. This payment will also work on a wholesale market-based pricing mechanism supporting usage pricing. The usage will likely increase with Ubisoft offering Activision Blizzard games to non-Windows OS (Operating Systems).
