Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Spec Ops Survival Mode Will Be Exclusive to PS4 for a Year

Just a few hours ago, Activision gave us our first look at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign with a new trailer, which was revealed during Sony’s State of Play video event. If you watched it til the end, (and on Sony’s upload of the campaign trailer) you might have noticed how it mentions that the Modern Warfare Spec Ops Survival Mode can be “played first on PS4.”

Not only is that piece of content available first to PS4 owners, but it will be timed exclusive content (like what what Activision did with Destiny and the PS4) for a year! Well, almost a year. Xbox One and PC players will be able to play Survival Mode on October 1, 2020! With Modern Warfare set for release this October 25, that means non-PS4 gamers will have to wait close to 12 months to just play the mode.

Remember when we posted how Activision promised that PS4 gamers will get a “day one advantage?” Yeah, this might be it. We assumed it would be an XP boost or something, but apparently, it’s even bigger.

Before anyone jumps on Infinity Ward’s necks, bear in mind that this Activsion-Sony exclusivity deal has been made years prior to the game’s existence, and chances are, this is Activision’s doing and Infinity Ward has no say in the matter at all. But hey, at least all platforms will be getting all modes and maps at the same time now, right?

And to be clear this will be the only timed exclusive content that the PlayStation 4 version will be receiving as confirmed by the narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki.

Hopefully, timed exclusivity stuff like these will be a thing of the past come next-gen for everyone’s sake.

Are you OK with this and will this affect whether you buy Modern Warfare or not? Let us know in the comments below.
