“Famousmortimer”, the same guy who revealed(leaked) that Call of Duty Ghosts will be a lower resolution on Xbox One than PS4, dropped another bomb shell on the community today. According to industry insider Pete, Call of Duty might be switching to the PlayStation 4 as lead platform in the future.
It’s still unclear what this new rumor means. Either Call of Duty will be developed on PS4 then ported to other platforms, or marketing will now be pushed by Sony, not Microsoft… OR maybe it means DLC exclusivity will change sides?
“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.”
It’s no secret that Xbox One sales are really behind PlayStation 4. Given the fact Microsoft has really been pushing EA’s Titanfall (Call of Duty’s competitor) and that Activision has created a new bond with Sony through Destiny, this rumor might be possible. We’ll keep you posted if we hear more…
