Modern Warfare 3 unveils final PlayStation exclusive content before Xbox buyout

Modern Warfare 3 unveils final PlayStation exclusive content before Xbox buyout

Xbox boss Phil Spencer previously said he’ll end console exclusive content for Call Of Duty post-acquisition.

Activision shared a bunch of new Call Of Duty info recently, including a new map for Call Of Duty: Warzone and, of course, gameplay details for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 .

This includes a trailer for a PlayStation exclusive content pack available to anyone who pre-orders Modern Warfare 3 digitally, which comes with a Van Goated Lockpick Operator Skin, AMRican Gothic Weapon Blueprint, and Starry Knife Melee Weapon Blueprint.

This is standard for any new Call Of Duty game, but what’s significant about this particular slice of DLC is that it is very likely the final time PlayStation owners get exclusive Call Of Duty content, since Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard is expected to be finalised this autumn.

It’s been 21 months since Microsoft announced the deal and while it’s not been without some resistance, to put things mildly, it looks set to be finally approved by the end of the month.

As a reminder, UK regulator the Competition and Markets Authority was the last real holdout but appears to have come round after further concessions were made.

A formal approval hasn’t been issued yet, but Microsoft is reportedly confident that things will be wrapped up as early as next Friday on October 13 – well before the October 18 deadline.





Sony and Activision’s longstanding Call Of Duty deal is expected to end with Modern Warfare 3 and, under normal circumstances, the two would probably have renegotiated to extend that deal, but that’s clearly not going to happen once Activision is part of Microsoft.

This also means Modern Warfare 3 will likely be the last entry to offer PlayStation exclusive beta tests. Especially since Xbox boss Phil Spencer previously pledged to end any sort of console exclusive content post buyout .

Additionally, the trailer for the PlayStation pack includes fine print that says the exclusive content is ‘not available on other formats until November 9, 2024’ – a year after Modern Warfare 3’s launch.

While not an explicit confirmation, this does suggest that said content will make its way to the Xbox version regardless. Just like how PlayStation 5 exclusives Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo came to Xbox a year after they launched.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC on November 10.
