Call of Duty
For a long time, Xbox was considered the home of Call of Duty. The massively popular first-person shooter was famous for content releases on Xbox first until Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. This coincided with the end of Activision’s contract with Microsoft, opening the door for Sony to seize the initiative. The contract itself not only gave PlayStation users access to the DLC releases a full 30 days earlier than PC and Xbox users, but it also gave them earlier access to the pre-release beta testing of the game.
While it has not been officially announced at this time, it has been heavily implied by statements during the community reveal stream, as well as tie-in advertisements, that the upcoming Black Ops 4 will be yet another piece of the PlayStation deal. This means that all of the DLC releases, as well as the upcoming beta events will most likely be on PlayStation first. as we’re already seeing advertisement campaigns tied with the game’s launch on Sony’s PS4.
