The exclusivity deal between Microsoft and Activision for Call of Duty series DLC content is an open secret, but for next-gen, something may be changing, according to details just shared by Industry Insider Pete Dodd on NeoGaf.
Dodd stated that for upcoming next-gen Call of Duty, Activision is switching lead platform to Playstation 4 and public announcement in this regard will be made soon.
“I’m not ready to jump on the XB1-is-doomed train yet. Titanfall, or really any game, can turn the fortunes, but as of now – yes, good start but valid concerns.”
“The PS4 is above and beyond all projections and publishers are re-calibrating to this. I heard that Activision is going to make a public announcement about COD changing to the PS4 as lead platform.”
“I have no idea if this means DLC (I assume MS locked that down for multiple years) but COD was a XBOX 360 game that happened to be on the ps3 last gen. That will be a hugely symbolic move… and don’t discount what that means to the masses.”
This sounds pretty legit considering the fact that Activision has already started favouring Sony’s PS4 (Destiny beta will be available on PS4 firmware).
