Despite some rumors and other information floating around, as of right now, it appears the PlayStation exclusivity deal with Call of Duty will be continuing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
First off, PlayStation uploaded the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reveal Trailer to their Twitter and YouTube profiles. And at the very end of the trailer, it says “Play New Content First on PS4™.”
And now, GameStop has updated their website with a new promotional image for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare — revealing that you can get a double sided poster with your preorder.
But the promotional image has the PlayStation 4 tags and says “Play New Content First On PS4™” as well.
Activision has not officially announced that the PlayStation deal is continuing for this year. The PlayStation Blog post did not mention new content first on PlayStation 4, and Activision also has not said anything yet.
Activision did announce that there would be no season pass for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and that the game will support cross play. It will be very interesting to see how cross play works if new content is in fact first on PS4.
