As we told you earlier this week, Activision has finally announced the Call of Duty 2014 game developed by Sledgehammer. It is going to be called Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and now we have some important information regarding the inevitable COD: Advanced Warfare DLC.
If you have been keeping up to date with the latest rumors regarding Call of Duty over the last year or so, you may be aware of initial speculation suggesting that Microsoft’s DLC exclusivity agreement with Activision could have expired after the release of Call of Duty Ghosts.
However, we can confirm to you now that this isn’t the case. Activision and Microsoft have said in black and white that COD Advanced Warfare DLC will still be on Xbox first, which means that the same month long shenanigans will carry on and PS3, PS4 and PC owners will have to wait a month extra to play any new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare DLC.
Having said that, we’re not entirely surprised by this outcome. It almost feels like a forgone conclusion these days that Call of Duty is an Xbox brand, but it will be interesting to see whether Microsoft has renewed their exclusivity contract with Activision or if it really is going to expire soon.
PS4 owners reading this won’t be happy though as some may admit for the first time in a while that COD: Advanced Warfare looks promising. The fact that PS4 owners have to wait a month again though may be a huge turn off and certainly won’t help Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Season Pass sales on PlayStation.
Give us your reaction to the news. Are you surprised by this or not?
